I love my mom.

In 24 days, I will be leaving home and going to college. I'm excited and a little nervous too. But the one person who I am going to worry about most when I'm gone, is my sweet mother.

She is an amazing example. Not only does she take care of our family, but she works full-time as a night nurse, and actively serves in our church. What an inspiration she truly is. Every person that has had the privilege of getting to know my mother would agree that she has changed their life for the better. I'm going to miss her a lot. My only hope is that one day, I will be able to be just like her.

Mom, don't worry about me. I'll be just fine. You have raised me right. Your smile, your counsel, your laugh, and your hugs have helped me through everything. I love you very much. And just remember, the Lord will never give us more than what we can handle.

Mom, because of you, I am a young woman who has an immense amount of love and faith in our Heavenly Father and His son, Jesus Christ. Thank you for being my example.
