My mom is, and always has been exceptional at mothering. Always nurturing, always compassionate, encouraging, motivating, generous… she never took short-cuts and knew that loving discipline and correction would pay off. She also took such joy in the art of motherhood that I always looked forward to being a mommy myself.And now I am, times FOUR! I hope and pray that my children see that same joy in me and that they look forward to parenting as much as I did. Thanks for the great example, mom!
