It's funny how you're just one person but over the years you've been so many things to me - "mama," "mommy," "mom," vomit bucket holder and band-aid-applier, slumber-party-host, hand-holder, teacher, listener, meal-maker, encourage-er and challenger, ear-to-listen and shoulder-to-cry-on, shopping buddy, fashion consultant, furniture mover, advice giver and best friend.
You've taught me everything from shaving legs and buying bras to knowing about God's grace.
And I am forever thankful that out of all the kids in the world, only Shannon and I get to be yours. That's pretty special. I love you so much.
