I get to sit here and read all the awesome Best Mom on Wheels entries... talk about an awesome job! Here's one I want to share that I thought was pretty touching.
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross explains my mom with her quote, "The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do...not just happen." Just a year ago my parents were in an accident 5 states away in Virginia, after ICU, PCU, and rehab in Virginia my mom was finally able to come home. She has worked so hard there and even harder back in Wisconsin. My Mom is the Best Mom on Wheels because she has worked not only physically but mentally. She had to miss a lot of things while she was gone including sending her youngest child off to college, but the picture included is Family Weekend in LaCrosse Wisconsin for my youngest sister. We were all able to enjoy the city and even watched the Football game! My Mother has become even more beautiful (if that was possible) through this accident. She is an amazing woman and deserves to be the Most Beautiful Mom on Wheels.
