"Special K".... also known as my Mom

Since today is Mother's Day I thought I'd take a minute to tell you what a great mother I have.
So... in honor of my fabulous mom, I thought I'd give you the top 20 reasons I just love her!!!
Here we go....
20. She's tough as nails and never complains.
19. She is a convert to the church
18. She is a great mother in law (at least that's what Scottie says)
17. She can strike up a convo with absolutely anyone.
16. She never told me what to do but always had faith in me that I'd make the right choice.
15. She raised four wonderful children (yes, I'm one of them)
14. She married a wonderful man named Steve so I could have a wonderful Dad.
13. I love to scrapbook with her because she lets me use all of her scrapbook supplies.
12. She listens to all my problems and makes them all better.
11. She's a big fan of my Scottie.
10. She encouraged me to finish college when I got burned out.
9. She always has good advice
8. All my friends love her (to death)
7. She always "lets" me steal a sip of her Diet Coke....and never complains
6. She has a strong testimony.
5. She's the only woman I know who gets her visiting teaching done on the first day of the month...every month.
4. Came to every single basketball game I ever had.
3. She's gorgeous....hopefully I take after her when I get older.
2. She's a wonderful Grammy to her three grandchildren.
1. She's MY "Special K"

Overall my mother is fantastic and I know that 20 reason is just not enough to describe how wonderful she is, but I didn't want anyone to feel bad that they didn't get my mom for a mom!
Happy Mother's Day Mom!!!
