spt challenge - mother's day



we celebrate mother's day on sunday, may 13th this year. i am fortunate that i will get to spend part of the day with my mother. i am truly fortunate that my mother lives in the same town, and i get to spend parts of many days with her.

on sunday, i am going to pay special attention to my mom. i am going to try and see her through your eyes. what would i like you to know about my mom? what lessons has she taught me? what *mom* phrases do i hear coming out of my own mouth?

what would you like us to know about your mom? who is the woman in your life who bandaged your knees, led you to kindergarten, taught you how to play the piano, or how to run a basting stitch, or how to polish silver? maybe she taught you how to plant a garden, or how to take great photographs, or how to ride a bike?

if you could be with her this weekend, what would you say? is "thank you" enough?

I'm excited to do this one. I love your SPT challenges. And thanks for checking in on me, I was a little confused when I clicked on your link to my website and why it was such an old page. I guess now I know! :)

This one will be hard for me. I can never express in words how much love I have for a person so I hope I will be able to do justice to what I feel for my mom.
