Thursday 13 v.10

Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen reasons CARMEN loves her mom

Mother's Day edition :)
  1. My mom makes this dish called chicken goulash. It's really good.
  2. She stood up for me with a few of the awful teachers I had in school.
  3. She encouraged my musical abilities.
  4. She helped me move more times than I can count.
  5. When she visits me, she cleans my house.
  6. She thinks I'm beautiful
  7. We talk on the phone every day.
  8. She loves my dad and I never had to grow up in a broken home.
  9. She cries when Charlie Brown doesn't get a valentine, even though she's watched it 100 times.
  10. She is a retired teacher, but her kids still talk to her when they see her out and about. She was a really good teacher.
  11. She loves my cat, and lets him visit with me, even though she is overly anal about cat hair
  12. She prays for me every day.
  13. She loves me, unconditionally. And I love her right back!

Awww....great minds are in the same track. I also wrote about my mom. You're sounds special too.

Angie said...

Yeah, I think we are all writing about our Moms today. Sweet list...enjoyed.

Scouser said...

Lot of TT about moms today. Thank you for visiting my T13

Melli said...

I KNEW your mother was a wonderful person! Even before you told me -- I just knew it! And she and I have a few things in common -- most importantly we BOTH think you're beautiful! But also, I'm a substitute teacher! (might be soon retired!) LOL! Carmen, this was a very sweet tribute to your mama, and I know she's going to shed a tear when she reads it! (if she hasn't already...) You're a good girl!

Lifecruiser said...

Awww, that is another kind of Love, so there seem to be much Love this thursday :-)

Love is always beutiful :-)

Mary said...

Geez. .. I'm feeling bad that I didn't tribute my mom this week! I'm a horrible daughter! ;0)

Leanne said...

Aww, Happy Mother's Day to your mom!

I think it's adorable when teachers remember their students after a few years have passed. How neat that so many people have such fond memories of her, that would make me so proud!

Becky, Mom, Mommy, Hey you, said...

I also wrote about my mother...wow...Great TT

Karen said...

I did mothers day, too. I love it! did you cry?

Kelly said...

You are such a wonderful daughter!
A nice tribute to your mom, I hope she gets the chance to read it.

Great TT List!

mar said...

Awww, wonderful TT, you are a sweet daughter! now : what instrument(s) do you play? Happy Mother's Day to your mom and happy TT to you!

Your mom sounds like she is an extra-special lady. I can see why you love her! :)

I love reading about all the mom's this week. She sounds awesome.

Happy 13!

colleen said...

You got up a lot earlier than me!

This is very sweet. I have something up about my mom from Monday and something coming this weekend.

My 13 are up and running too!

Wystful1 said...

My tribute to my mom, I did on May 9th the anniversary of mothers day in the USA (1914)

Anyway, great great tribute to your mom!! Isn't a mother the best ever?

Love it.

My T T is published

Chana said...

How did I not think of a Mother's Day TT? Shame on me! Great list. I especially think that #11 is important. My mom has really stepped outside of herself by not only tolerating my 2 Danes but loving and caring for them.When Atlas was in his Addisonian crisis and we thought he was going to die, she cried right along with me and told me how much she loved him. It really touched me! Also, thanks for stopping by my blog.

twiga92 said...

eph2810 said...

What a beautiful tribute to your mom.
I love it that she cries that Charlie doesn't get his Valentine.
Awesome that you are covered in prayer every day (I pray for my son too every day :))
I really should have thought posting 13 reasons why I love my mom...

Denise said...

Such a great list!!

FrogLegs said...

Now I feel guilt over.. BUT! Kiddo loves my hubby like no other, plus he's got his daddy too. So I'm good. LOL! That is a fabulous list-- Happy Mommy's day to her! I love that when my mom comes to visit she makes my favorite foods... yummmm :)

eve said...

happy thursday,,, i loved your list, this's a great idea no doubt

AuntieM said...

Thanks for visiting my new blog. You can make a quilt in the reverse method with t-shirts by having the seams on the top side (right side of the material), and clipping the seams every half inch just to the seam line (not in it). This makes a lovely throw, and you can make it envelope style, sewing all around but leaving a small opening to turn it, then top stitch around. Bet your mom will know how.

Anonymous said...

Lovely list! Happy Mom's day to your momma!

One Scrappy Gal said...

I can relate to the cleaning. My mom does that too. :)

Thanks for the visit. I thought I had commented earlier but I can't find it here - anyhoo, just wanted to let you know that your tribute to your mom is so sweet!

Also wanted to let you know that I had originally found your fun site via your other site "Road to a Bestseller". Your posts there are great!

Aww...I used to talk to my mom every day on the phone, too. That was the hardest thing to get used to after she died. This was a wonderful tribute to your mom!

Mrs. Cranky Pants said...

Very sweet TT.

Emily said...

Will she visit me and clean my house too? LOL

Erika said...

Goulash reminds me of the Gabor sisters, I should try it sometime, I hear it's good! =)

Ahh I wish I had done a Mom for my T13, but it's never too late eh?

Me said...

Great TT and it gave me a couple ideas on how to be even more loved by my own daughter... chicken goulash...good idea!

Joan said...

God bless you AND your mother - she sounds like a treasure! I am blessed with an amazing one too.

My 13 are also posted.

Red said...

Thank you for giving me the chance to sing my Mum's praises. I know I don't do it enough.

Don't forget to buy some flowers for your Mum on Sunday!

Christine said...

Great idea for TT! Being a mom, and am now at a crossroads with oldest daughter. She plays the violin beautifully, but because her friend doesn't want to play anymore my daughter wants to follow her, I've had to encourage her to keep it up even though she doesn't think she plays good!! Sounds like your Mom did a wonderful job raising you!
Happy TT!

ladydaria said...

Sounds like an incredible woman! Happy TT Carmen!

How lovely your TT this week, dedicated to Mother´s Day! Congratulations :)

May you have a great weekend!

What a lovely post. I wrote about motherhood, but not about my mom. I love her... but perhaps shouldn't write about it in a public place.

It sounds like you are blessed with an amazing mother.

Robin said...

What a good mommy.

Great list Carmen,and yes Charlie Brown does get to me sometimes. I a excited for you to go to Eygpt. I have been there and cant wait to hear all about your trip. Be Blessed and thanks for stopping by.

Full Contact, Savior-centric Livin said...

Wow! 94 comments! Will you even see mine?

This is too sweet. I really must think through reasons I love my mom.

I popped over, seeming to remember that you're a photographer, to see if you'd like to enter the photo contest at the Dabbling Mum. You can learn about it by checking out my Apr 26 post. Tell all the photographers you know, too! I want some more competition!

No, I'm not on the DM staff. Just spreading the word.

Titanium said...

Your mom sounds great!

angela said...

So sweet...isn't it nice when you see what a great person your mom is? I know people who totally freak out when their moms come to visit, but my mom is like yours...she cleans (but not in a judgemental way) and always makes sure the guest bedroom is ready for the next person...Hope I am as well thought of when my kids are grown...

txsoapmom43 said...

She sounds like a wonderful mom. My mom stood up for me also in the 2nd grade.
