My Mum...

Hi everyone!! It's Charlie, back from the world of "high school homework"! I know I haven't blogged for ages, but today is a great opportunity to say how proud of my Mum I am.This year has been a difficult year for her, but she has shown her true resilient and determined nature. Even though she works part time, (for a while she was juggling 3 different jobs!!!) is the Secretary for my church, and has to drive my brother and me to school each morning, at different times, she amazingly still finds time to blog, quilt, stitch and all those other creative things she does. Over this year alone, I can't even begin to count all those amazing masterpieces my Mum has made! This Christmas, instead of having a relaxing holiday, she had to cook food for the 30 something relations who was coming around to our place Christmas afternoon. And she managed it!!! She has the amazing ability to make our place look friendly and warm, using just some little Christmas nicknack's, (half of which she made) and managing to impress the whole of our family!!!
When I was little, I remember going to school and pulling my special little baked goodies out of my lunch box. Suddenly, all my friends (and not-so-friends) were around me, offering to swap their lunch for mine!!! Her name was famous in my school!!! Even my teachers had heard about her legendary baking skills.
Although all these things  in my Mum is great, I gotta say my favourite part of Mum is her understanding towards my little petty problems. Even though me and Josh can be incrediablly painful at times she is always ready to help us when we ask!!! By watching her, she has brought me closer to Jesus, and has been an excellent role model in my life!!!

This may sound a bit cliche, but.....when I grow up, I want to be just like my Mum.
I love you Mum!!!
Love Charlie
