My mom is beautiful

My mom is beautiful!
She is loving.
She is smart.
She makes me laugh with her humor.
No one listens to me the way she does
without judging or condemning.
She is always there to support me,
encourage me and show how proud she is.
My mom is humble.
She has no clue what an impact her life,
her spirit, her support, and her radiant smile have on the 
people around her.

Whether her hair is long or short,
brown or white, even now as her face has a few more wrinkles 
and she no longer cares about dolling up her face with makeup.
My mom is beautiful.

She is 82 years of beautiful.
Living her life loving others and now
loving her four legged companion who is always by her side.
She walks each day at 5 am with her Samson dog.
Mom stillenjoys her cup of cocoa while others sip their coffee.
She says coffee smells wonderful but yuck the taste!

Mom may not remember everything anymore but who of us remembers everything?
We don't know we don't remember because we can't remember what we forgot.
Mom trusts those of us who love her and isn't burdened by worry.
She no longer stresses about the little things in life.
What a blessing that she is genuinely happy.
Her yes attitude whenever asked to go do something is one of the things I admire most.
Too often I over analyze what I should do. 
Mom goes and enjoys the going.

I am so blessed to have my mom and that she still comes to spend time in my home.
Yesterday we went to lunch, got a haircut and did a bit of shopping.
But I know so many no longer have these simple days with their moms. 
I don't take it for granted that I get to spend time laughing,
enjoying time with my lifelong friend.

My mom is beautiful.
The best compliment I can receive is when others compare me to her.
When I grow up I want to be just like my mom.
Beautiful inside and out.

In Him,
