I know somewhat of the sacrifices she has made on my behalf since I too have raised four children, yet I will always be indebted to her no matter how many small or big gifts I give her for Mother's Day. She gave me life and I will never fill her shoes.
We don't always see eye to eye-I am a bit of a rebel when it comes to always being a southern lady:)
I like my walls painted red and love zebra print.
She used to threaten to send me to charm school and a few years later I made the same statement to my girls when they were being un-lady like!
Mom, you will be happy to know that just last week someone called me to ask a question, as they explained "because you know about etiquette and stuff like that." See mom I did listen!
Really, I do not believe anyone has ever had a mother that did every single thing a mother should do like my mom Martha. I love you mom...you gave me a tough path to follow but I am your daughter which means I have it in me to succeed!
Love your eldest, and hopefully wisest child:) Kimberly
