I’m not sure how many of you know my mom, but if you do, you’ll agree she’s pretty great. I believe I’ve called her ‘my favorite person in the world’ more than once.
Well, she had a birthday on November 13th and while I did mail her a gift, I didn’t mention her day here on the blog. This was mostly due to the fact that I hardly blogged at all in the month of November, but it was also because I couldn’t think of a way to say what she means to us all.
Then it came to me yesterday.
Several years ago, either for Mother’s Day, Christmas, or her Birthday, I gave her a print from one of our favorite artists.

I always thought it applied to our house in Ada, where it hangs. What I realized after hosting both Jon and my family for Thanksgiving away from home, high up in the mountains, is that it actually applies to wherever she goes. She makes a home for us all.
Happy belated birthday mom.
