I am my mother's daughter.

It's Mother's Day, and I wouldn't be half the mom I am today, without my own mother - Jeanette Weishaar. She taught me everything I needed to know about how to raise happy, healthy, well-adjusted kids. She should know, she raised seven of them.

Not only that, but when my youngest brother was only a year old, she started a career of raising other people's children. For 26 years, she had a daycare in her home and helped nurture and care for over 70 children in Colby. (A few years back we tried to count them all, but lost track.)

If ever there's a mother that exemplifies strength, humor, patience, faith and love - it's Jeanette.

Thanks mom, Happy Mother's Day.
