Happy Birthday Mom

Today is my moms 65th birthday and I thought I would share some things you might not know about her.
When she was born her family lived in Queen Creek, she was the first girl after 6 boys.

While in grade school she hit a boy over the head with her tap shoe. I don’t remember why the boy deserved it but I am pretty sure he did. I love this story!

In High school she was involved with everything, I know she did student council, choir, cheer (at least one year), and she was even voted the queen of one of their dances I think it was a Cinderella themed dance.

She also really likes Johnny Mathis, I think he is her favorite artist.

She started dating my dad when she was 15. He asked her out by stealing the ladder from the goal post she was decorating for the football game. He wouldn't let her down unless she said yes.

She received many scholarships and attended Arizona State University where she got her teaching degree. She taught PE & Home Ec. at Mesa Jr. High.

My mom is probably the most capable person I know, she knows how to do it all and she is never afraid to do it. Her strength has supported her family and influenced many around her. Her love carries me through this life. Thank you mom for all you do, I love you so very much.
