When I was a little girl, I thought my mom was so beautiful. That did not change as I grew older. She always stood by me and took care of me, even when I wasn't very nice to her (teenage years!) My mom was smart, generous, and the world's best cook. I will hold her in my heart until I get to see her again in heaven.
