My awesome mom

Hello! My mom came over around 5:30 last night and kicked me out for a half hour. She helped my boys cook me one of my favorite things (chicken cutlets.) They also set the table with nice valentines napkins and plates. They used my good glasses (plastic wine glasses, they are great.) They served me my dinner and poured my water for me. They also made chocolate covered strawberries and bananas for dessert. It was awesome. The best valentines EVER! Then my mom did the dishes. My mom is so awesome. She is always thinking of ways to make others feel better. I love her and could not make it without the love and support she has given me my whole life. It really makes me be able to overlook how she "borrowed" my favorite James Taylor cd. Sorry old joke we have.
But seriously we all need someone in our lives that is always in our corner no matter what. This is a glimpse of how much God loves us. God loves us no matter what we do or say or how we act. Now this is not an excuse to sin, because He wants us to grow closer to Him, but nothing we can do can make Him love us less. And I am so thankful for this. I am also glad he gave me my mom who loves me no matter what, too.
And of course God gave me the two sweetest little valentines (Jason & Joshua.)
The best part was at dinner when my mom said let's say something you like about mommy. She asked Joshua first, he said UGHH, I don't know. Jason said I was nice, so Josh said I was just going to say that. My mom said what does Mommy do nice for you? Again we got a blank stare from Joshua. I am so glad he appreciates me. But it was funny. And who doesn't need a good laugh now and again? I know I do. Thanks God for the moments that remind me how much you love me, and thanks for giving me my mom. -Becky
