Mom – I hope you know that I love you and am so very thankful for you!
There are so many reasons why I am so very grateful for you! To start, you are a wonderful mother to your three children. You can just see the joy each one brings you even still today. You have raised very loving children, and that is a direct reflection of the love you shared with them.
You are also a wonderful example of a mother-in-law! I have thought about Paulie & Noah growing up and finding a woman to marry (I don’t think of it too often, but I do imagine that from time to time). I hope I can be half as good at is as you are. You have been very patient with me throughout the years. You immediately welcomed me into the family with open arms. I was quickly included as part of the family. And, you have been so patient with me as I grew into being a fiance, then wife and now mother. Thank you for your love, acceptance, grace and patience (especially when I didn’t deserve it)!
You are also great “Busia” to the kids. I hope you can see and feel how much they love you! Thank you for all of your help & support with the kids! And, it’s not just the kids. Your willingness to watch them allows Paul & I the time to get away and focus on our marriage. Words cannot express how truly valuable that time is – and – how much we appreciate you!
Mom – Please know how much I love you and how truly grateful I am for you!
