Mother's Day

Yesterday was Mother’s Day, and in honor of that, here’s a list of 20 of the favorite memories I have about my Mom:
  1. Going to Friendly’s restaurant
  2. Watching her make Kringle
  3. Coming home from elementary school and finding she had made big chocolate chip cookies for our afternoon snack
  4. The way she made holidays seem so special
  5. Visiting model homes with her, just to dream
  6. Her cooking lessons and recipes – to this day, they are still amazing!
  7. How she could balance that tight, tight budget!
  8. Waking up in the morning as a child and finding a brand new Barbie waiting for me
  9. Her willingness to put us through private school
  10. Coffee talk!
  11. All things Norwegian
  12. So many shopping trips!
  13. The moment when she told me that one of the last goals she had was to make sure I graduated from college (I did!)
  14. The way she looked on my wedding day
  15. Reminiscing!
  16. Hearing her stories about Daddy
  17. Coming downstairs and finding her on the loveseat drinking coffee and reading from her pink Bible
  18. Her love for the dog, even though “she never wanted one”
  19. Seeing her loving on her roses
  20. The way other people loved her

I love you, Mom, and I miss you!
