I interviewed one of my sweet friends, Marijke {mer-I-kah} to ask her about her mom. Marijke has been married for a few years, and she and her husband don’t have kids yet. And Marijke’s mom and dad live all the way in Singapore. Crazy! But they manage to keep up with skype, instagram and visits when possible. Here is what Marijke had to say about her mom…

What makes your mom so special?
My mom loves to serve and care for others. She is incredibly honest and has a really big heart for everyone. She has taught me what it looks like to be a loving wife and mother.

If your mom had a whole day to herself, what would she do with it?
She would spend it with her family! My pop, her four kids, and her five sisters!  Probably eating good food together – preferably a picnic in Laguna Beach.

How does your mom show you that she loves you?
She shows her love through acts of service. She cleans for you, makes the most amazing food for you, and does anything else you need or want.
