What is beautiful? Well, right now, many things are beautiful to me, but the woman on my right hand up above is beautiful...in every meaning of the word. Mom...what you have done for me this past week is...I really don't have the words. You left today, and I was in tears. Tears of gratitude. And with the quiet that surrounds me now, I have been thinking of you.
What dad said the other day when they came down for dinner is right on...you are one of a kind. You are and always have been one of the most selfless persons I know. What you have done for me I only pray I can do for my children. You cooked, cleaned, laundered, dusted, vacuumed, and most importantly entertained. Evan woke from his nap asking where you were, and I have yet to tell him you have gone home. I keep telling him we will see you soon.
You are beautiful. I say that with tears welling in my eyes and swelling in my heart. Even though you have a 'potty mouth', I love everything about you and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you are.
I love you mom.
