– showed me how to work hard and multitask like none other,
– made us all incredible homemade Halloween costumes each year,
– balanced all of our schedules and gave us every opportunity in the world,
– encourages me in everything I do and believes in me,
– listens to every mundane detail of my life and takes my side when I need her,
– offers great advice,
– loves Aaron and treats him like we’ve been family all of our lives,
– and makes me want to be just like her when I’m a mother.
