To my mom

as i was reading some of the posts about my comments about girls, my mother walked by and stuck a nice juicy strawberry in my mouth. that was nice. but know as i think about it, i was more than nice. mommys are cool. that do all that pregancy stuff to get us into the world, and then they still want to keep us. weird, huh? they change our diapers, cook our meals, get up in the middle of the night when we puke, and answer our questions at the store about why some people are so fat or ugly. they come to our games, concerts, teacher meetings, etc. they put band-aids on as when we get hurt physicallty, and the wrap us in hugs when we get hurt emotionally. they cry when we do wrong, and rejoice when we do right. they still love and pray for us when we disregard them and their standards. they support us in our decisions even though it isn't what they want for us. theytalk to us about our diferences with out saying we are wrong. they challenge us to actually think about the standards we set for ourselves. and we wonder why some people never want to move out (aside from wanting to be a hobo). mothers are awesome. i know it's past mothers day, but its never the wrong time to show our love to our mothers. so mom, if you are reading this, i love you. thanks for still caring after all the heartache tha i have put you through. and when i'm in the navy, i will come home as aften as i can. to see you, not just for your cooking. i love you.

oh joey joey joey, (i hope you're used to that by now, because it is my special privilege to call you that) your post about loving your mom was very cute. it represented a side of you that actually matches the nickname "joey" and that is why i call you that. i always knew that deep down inside there was a joey in you, no matter how many times you told me not to call you that.

Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly
who always finds the best in me
there's no one like mother!
... remember this song?....it goes out to all the mommies all over the world:
we love you!

Ha, ha, joe i just read the comments about moody girls and laughed so hard. But then again i know quite a few boys who can be every bit as moody! And i'm sure you know some too. Check out my blog for some thoughts into girls' minds...
