My Mom.

Happy Mother's Day!
Our ward's munch and mingle today was dedicated to our Mother's. We were asked to bring food that reminds us of our Mom's. So I made...
(sorry for the bad picture... I took it with my cell phone)
Orange Jell-o with mandarin oranges and shredded carrots. My Mom used to always make this. Before she had grandchildren and son-in-laws that won't eat jell-o that has stuff in it. It is always the big Mormon joke of bringing jello with shredded carrots... but I like it. Although I have never made it before and haven't had it in YEARS. And I actually didn't get to eat any today as I left church early because I couldn't stop coughing.

Mom- I love you and I am grateful for all that you have done for me.
Thank you for teaching me how to:
sew
clean
cook
bake
laugh
drive
make a bed
sweep
pray
iron
garden
shop
and so much more.
And Happy Mother's Day to all my sisters who are also mother's. You are all amazing. Thank you for your wonderful examples.
