For Mom.

May 7, 2010

Shipped off a package to my mom yesterday for Mother’s Day. I found a shirt that she had been eyeing at J.Crew on sale in her size & immediately snatched it up for her. It’s pale pink, ruffly, with lots of flower appliques along the neckline — perfect for her. :]

Haha, I may have gone a little tape-happy with the card, but ah well. (And she doesn’t check this blog, so it’s safe to post about this.)

My mom is my role model in many ways & I find myself aspiring to be like her, especially since I became a wife myself. She has a really gentle & quiet spirit, which I’m always striving for but find myself constantly falling short. I love that she supports my dad in every decision & stands behind him — I’ve never once doubted her respect for him or confidence in his leadership. Throughout the past 24 years, I have hardly heard her complain about anything, which is saying a lot, cause I’ve seen her in her best and worst moments. She truly has a servant heart, and I hope to model that same gentle spirit to my children one day. Love you, mama. <3

How are you celebrating Mother’s Day?

    the description of your mom (what a lovely woman) is exactly the kind of girl i hope to be someday. one with a gentle and quiet spirit, a servant heart, a grateful heart, and a devoted helper/supporter for my husband. how wonderful to have such a beautiful example to follow!

    ps. your package is darling! may i ask where you found your exquisite envelope?
