My Mom

This is my mom. 

Well, this is her from 20 years ago. 

I just found a picture from Thanksgiving where she's wearing a pink striped shirt. She looks the same. It's ridiculous.

I would post it, but I took it when she was taking a bite of food and so it wouldn't be kosher to post it. 

I love how much my step-dad Brent adores my mother. They have a beautiful relationship. 

Last night, my mom came down to see You're a Good Man Charlie Brown

I love seeing my mom. 

I hope I can be like her someday. I want her discipline, her wisdom, her conviction, her long beautiful fingernails, her melodic laugh, and her beautiful smile. 

I also would love to have a relationship like the one she has with Brent. 


Today I am grateful for my mom.

I was thinking about your mom already this week, as I told my 5th grade students about a time from my teenage years that involved her. It's a funny story, and one that I treasure. I'll spare you the details--the gist of it is that I was raised with a strict father, and Kim wanted me to go to the water park in Ogden with her, but my dad said no. Your mom was aware of my situation, and she lied for me so that I could go. And we did it several times that summer. I really savor those few moments of freedom and exciting teenage times, thanks to your mom's insight and Kim's forwardness.
