Thanks, Mom!

As Mother’s Day quickly approaches, it’s a time to reflect on how much I appreciate, respect and admire my mom. After all, she is the one who made sure I did my best in school by making sure I finished my homework, kissed my boo-boo’s when I got hurt, and was my biggest cheerleader when I did something great. My mom is also the one who took me to get my own library card. Okay, so I have always been a “book” geek. I LOVE reading! I will read anywhere; in a chair, on the stair, in a train or a plane (I think you get the idea). When I got my own library card, my mom opened up a whole new world for me. After all, when school ended for the summer, where would I get my books? I couldn’t afford to buy new ones every week. I devour books and I don’t mean I eat them, I just read books really fast because I cannot wait to see what happens at the end of them! I remember walking up the stairs to the Youth Services area and seeing rows and rows of books just waiting for me to check them out. Mom made sure I came for story times, puppet shows and of course she signed me up for Summer Reading!

The library is a great place to get ideas to celebrate what a great mom she is! I can check out the many different cookbooks the library has and then plan a great meal for mom. Did you know moms actually enjoy when others do the cooking? But maybe I want to make something special for her. Well, there are lots of books filled with great crafts that I can choose to make for her. Don’t forget about the great drawing books, too. Moms really do love when we make them cards and put our beautiful illustrations on them. So on May 10th, don’t forget to show your mom how much you love and appreciate her. And to my mom, I say thank you for being a great mom!
