Thankful Thursday: 5/30/13

[Thankful Thursday is a weekly segment that began 1/10/13 - read why here.  I invite you to join me in practicing gratitude!]

Today is my mom's birthday.  I'm very thankful for my mother.  I know I've already mentioned somewhere on the blog that she sends a weekly letter in the mail.  She also takes the time to make great homemade cards for all of the holidays and sends those as well, regardless of which country I'm living in.  She's always willing to drive in to Madison to pick me up and take me wherever it is that I need to go.  She (and my father) has instilled great values in my siblings and I; we are so lucky.  She is proud of us kids, and somehow lets me go when I leave the country for a year's time.  She's done that twice already, and I'm making her do it again this fall (that's foreshadowing, folks).

Happy birthday mom!
