Wing Nut would also like to say a very special thank you to her mother today. This one's for you, Mom! :-)
Recently you told me that I amaze you with my cooking and gardening abilities. You said I didn't learn these things from you. Well perhaps not exactly, but I have learned a tremendous amount from you.
Maybe you didn't teach me how to cook gourmet meals, but you taught me the basics and made sure I always had enough to eat.
Maybe you didn't teach me to garden, but you did help me see the beauty of nature and God's creation all around me.
You didn't teach me good customer service skills; you showed me how to treat people with kindness and respect.
You filled our home with laughter (and some silliness!) and taught me that laughter really is often the best medicine.
You taught me that good friends and family are far more important than the clothes we wear or the cars we drive.
You taught me that open communication, even when the words are difficult to say, is the key to healthy, honest relationships.
I learned all of these things from you so far. With your ongoing love and support, I hope to continue to learn and grow.
Thank you for everything, Mom. I love you.
