As I was planning my blog for Mother’s Day, I thought, “Why don’t I ask for Ryan’s input?” Last night, while he was having dessert, I asked the question, “Tell me about your mom.” The following are his (unedited) responses:
“You look pretty.
You let me do fun things.
You paid for me to go skiing.
You take me out to dinner.
You are nice because you help me and other people a lot.
You take me to movies.
You are kind and merciful because you help me with clothes, made my bed, help kids get bikes at Barber Center.
You taught me to be kind and merciful and the importance of helping God every day by helping others.
You help me out a lot.
You work out with me at LECOM and Build Your Bod and play tennis and golf and bowling.
You taught me how to fold clothes, do things, to cook, be safe.
You made me go to school and I learned there how to get a job.
You helped me learn how to interact with people.
You helped me to learn to do emails by myself and find the internet.
You helped me learn how to behave by helping me understand what I was allowed to do and not allowed.
You went to school a long time so you know a lot of things about school that you could then teach me.
You think that family is important, I get to enjoy them and you taught me they are important too.
You taught me how to work hard and try hard and put my best effort to everything I do.
Happy Mother’s Day, Mom. I love you! You are very important to me. I am very grateful to have you in my life.
Thank you for everything you have done for me. I would not want anyone else to be my mom.”
