Happy Birthday Mommy Dearest!

It was my Mom's Birthday yesterday! She is the best mom anybody could have. I am sorry this is a day late, I just forgot to get it on yesterday! Hope you had a good one!!! My mom is a wonderful women! She is so creative, she can sew just about anything, makes the best food, is known for her Holli Cakes, and many more creative things! She is so talented and such a hard worker, who can say their mom does everything! When I was growing up my mom did it all! I didn't do laundry, cook, clean, etc until my I got married, because my mom did it all for me. She can fix anything, she mows the lawn, she does the yard work, all of the inside work, and also has a job working as an office manager at AR Aluminum. She is such a wonderful Grammy, she can't go anywhere with out picking up something for her grandbabies! She loves to watch my children and just visit with them. My mom is so selfless and supportive, she never missed any of my sports games growing up, that goes for my Brother and Sisters too! She would even go on road trips with us, and stay in the hotels with us! She has always been my BEST friend. I can tell her EVERYTHING and do tell her everything! She has a great sense of humor, I mean you'd have to, to marry my dad! She used to be a preschool teacher, and I have kids and mothers as well as fathers come up to me all the time saying how much they loved her and wish they were still in her class! She never moved away from my Grammy (her mom) so she could take care of her. She mows my Grammy's yard, shovels her driveway, etc... She invites my Speechly Grandparents over just about evey Sunday for dinner, does their shopping, and checks in on them all the time. If it wasn't for her they'd probably have to be put in a nursing home! She is so healthy and thin, I wish I could look like her now as well is when I turn 48yrs. People ask us if we are sisters. I love to shop with her and just go up to hang out at their house, I hope she won't get sick of me, cause I don't get sick of her! All I can say is that I hope one day I can be like her, even if it is only one or two of her qualities! I love you mom! or other wise known as Miss Holli!

BTW, I usually go to the 4:30 or 5:40 class during the week and I go every Saturday morning. I only like Body Attack and Body Pump, though. I would love for you to join me anytime. I think it makes it more fun when you know people at the class.
