This is the only picture I could find of my mom on my laptop..She's going to kill me when she sees this! haha
My mom is such an amazing mom!!! The best, and I'm so glad she is mine!
Me and my mom are best friends! And I love it!
She is THE BEST friend anyone could ever wish for!
My mom has an amazing personality. She is so fun, but knows when to be serious.
She has the kindest heart, and would do ANYTHING for ANYBODY at ANYTIME . Even if her schedule doesn't match up with whatever is going on.
A little about my mom that you may have not known:
She played basketball, softball, volleyball, pom, and cheer in high school!
She has a very good voice!
She use to go bunny bashing with her friends!
Mom's in the center, next to her in the bright floral covering part of her face, is Tandy :) They are beauties aren't they?
She loves to dance. When I was little, and even now actually..Whenever my mom is baking, or cooking in the kitchen we always dance together. She'll teach me her moves, and I'll teach her some of mine! It's so fun, and I love that we make good memories like that.
When I was little she taught a singing, and dancing group for kids called, Sunshine Generation. Even though now she says she hates it, I know she loved it at the time! She would teach us the songs, and the dances, and it was SO much fun. I am so grateful that she did that for us.
There are so many more things I could tell you about my mom.. but I need a billion blog posts for that.. and there is just not enough time in this life for that! :)
Speaking of cooking, or baking, My mom is THE BEST cook ever! Seriously. Everything she makes is awesome. And I really, really hope I take after her in that department when I have a family of my own. So far I make a mean Mac and Cheese! :)
My mom has unwavering faith. She has always had a testimony of the church, and has lived righteously. She is always trying to do what is right. She has such a close relationship with our Savior. You can just feel that, and see that when you are around her. She is very Christ-like. She has this spirit about her, and you know she believes the gospel is true.
L-R-Great Grandma Chalk, Uncle Chris, Grandma Dixie, Mom-Trent in mom's arms,
Aunt Sandi next to her-holding Cole, my dad, and Grandpa Glenn.
She is a loveable person, who loves in return. She loves. And she loves BIG. If anyone comes in contact with my mom, they know they are loved right away. She has a big heart, and never let's us as her children know we are unloved. She is so caring, and amazing, and just everything! She is THE definition of a mother, and how a mother should be.
All the fam, :)
Growing up my mom was always the go-to parent. haha She hates to see us unhappy, and would say "yes" when dad would say "no." Not that my dad likes to see us happy-he is just the more strict one of the two...(he's slowly turning into a softy-the older, and more WISER he gets :))
Mom-also known as "the water fountain" by fellow family members. She is the biggest cry baby ever! When something touches her heart it really goes deep! She is always crying over everything, not bad things. Just things that are spiritual, and touching, things that mean a lot to her.
When I was little every Mother's Day I'd write a thank you letter to my mom telling her all the reasons I was thankful she was MY mom. And I could always count on at least a few tears from her! Even just telling her I love you sometimes would get the fountain going.
The sad thing is: I am JUST like her! So I really can't dog it all that much.
My mom being...well my mom has played that part really well, as well as a friend you can rely on when things are tough. I think everyone who has met mom are better people having met her. She is a big teaser, and loves to get us going. She is just so AWESOME-to say the least!!
I thought just for old times sake I'd write my mom a letter of like I used to when I was little.
So.... here it goes. (Get your tissue out ma, I KNOW you'll need it! ;))
Mom and me :)
I just wanted to write you a little letter telling you all the reasons I love you, and am grateful you are MY mom!
I love you because you make yummy dinners.
I love you because of all the fun times we have together.
I am so grateful for you and dad teaching me the gospel, and being an amazing example to me! I seriously do not know where I'd be without it, and that is SO very scary!
I am grateful for you being there for me all the time! Going to my games, and cheering me on. Between all the basketball games, softball games, and cheer competitions,you never ever complained about it. Not once. Even though I'm pretty sure you wanted to.. those cheer competitions can get way boring!
Thank you for believing in me, in everything I did, and trusting some of my decisions, even if you had to bite your tongue through it all, just so I would learn from that experience.
Thank you for being patient with me when I went through my "boy"/ugly stage. I know that probably killed you thinking, "I prayed hard for this GIRL, and she wants to be a BOY" I know that was probably not fun.
Also, for you being patient with me when I through tantrums, and fits when things didn't quite go my way.
Thank you for just being there when I needed a shoulder to cry on, or someone to talk to when my friends, or life were not so cool.
Thank you for being proud of me, and telling me you are proud of me. For the choices I make, and have made. You teach by example, and you are definitely the best example to me!
Thank you for spoiling me! :)
Thank you for all the home-cooked meals! I miss those terribly, and hope, and pray I am as good as a cook as you are!
Thank you for helping me through some rough times.
For being my best friend! One that I can always count on for anything.
Thank you for trusting me.
Thank you for all the little things you have taught me. Like how to ride a bike, tie my shoe, do my hair, makeup, everything!
Thank you for telling me you love me. Even more. Just loving me. You are the best, and I could not ask for more!
Thank you for just being you, and for being my mom!
I love you SO much! Seriously words cannot even express my love, and gratitude to you for everything you have shown me, and taught me.
I am the girl I am today because of you (and a little bit of dad of course!)
You have taught me SO much in so little time! I cannot believe I am like old enough to get married! Crazzy huh?! Don't worry-it won't happen for awhile :)
I seriously pray that I am at least HALF as good as a mom as you are!!
You are THE ABSOLUTE BEST, and I am SO glad you are mine!!!!
Your beautiful daughter,
Jentry Ann :)
I hope your birthday was full of fun, and amazingness!! :)
I love you SO much mom!! I am OH SO happy you were born!!!!!!
