Why I love St. George



This is who I call "Mom".

This is who my kids have named "Gaggie".

This is who taught me to remember something~anything about everyone you meet to make them know they matter to you.

This is who I hope will leave one of her scarves or a tee shirt at my home after a visit so I can smell her perfume.

This is who laughs at everything I say and who genuinely makes me believe I am hilarious.

This is who gave me my love for words.

This is who has a folder for each of her 'Gagglings' (grandkids) filled with things about them she finds important.

This is who my kids want to share their accomplishments. Because she makes them feel special.

This is who lives in GaggieLand ~ St. George.

This is who showed me how to CELEBRATE EVERY HOLIDAY.

This is who taught me how to decorate. (However, she has
the market cornered in this area of expertise.)

This is who taught me how to TALK to my Heavenly Father.

This is who makes it so hard to leave St. George.

I Love you, Mom.

I love your mom. She's the cutest. She has made me feel like a part of the family from the day I met her. Cute post Kris...you almost made me cry! And that's such a good picture of her.
