I Love You, Mom!

by Jenn (eating bender) on May 10, 2009

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Once again, I am incredibly touched and overwhelmed by both the congratulations and birthday wishes I have received this week. Honestly, this has been one of the best weeks of my life. I’ve been doing my best to make sure I remember that. The comments, cards, gifts, texts, calls, messages, emails and everything in between that I’ve received from you have taken it to another level. Thank you!!

This weekend has been filled with so much fun that I am currently in hyper work mode and need to focus my efforts on getting caught back up on some school work. I am still reading your blogs during study breaks (aka every chance I get!) so know I am there in spirit and will “catch up” with you as soon as possible :) I love you all!

Before I go, I just want to pay special tribute to the #1 lady in my life.


(Look at the cheesy grin on E’s face! I miss my brother!)

I love my mom so much. She is my constant supporter, my eternal confidante and my best friend. I know that no matter what, I can always count on her to be there for me, even when we are thousands of miles apart. She has taught me so much and I am so grateful. If I can be even 1/100th of the amazing woman she is, I’d be doing something right. She has given me so much that I will never truly be able to pay her back for, but I will do my best!

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom! I love you!

Back soon,
