71



 Yesterday we celebrated my Mother's 71st birthday.  We call Mom "Umi". 

I had my parents up for dinner after church where 
Lottie was kind enough to "share" 
her unicorn and rainbow balloons left over from her birthday.
(But but really).
After dinner we met up with all my siblings at my brother's house.
We went around the room sharing our favorite things about our Mom.
I said: I love Mom because she taught me to love and develop
homemaking skills.  She taught me how to set the table, wash clothes,
and grocery shop.  Most importantly she taught me the importance of 
teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ in my home.
 I love being a mother and a homemaker 
because Mom instilled that love in me.
Thanks Mom.  My children thank you and Mr. Nielson is thankful.
And one day, my grandchildren will thank you.

I love you mother! 

PS...my foot IS NOT FRACTURED!  Just sprained.  
I totally can walk around now.
My brother said that my injury is called "I need attention". Ha.
Honestly, I am so glad for my good health!
