Five things Friday number 22

I will share every Friday five things.  I will place them in no order of importance, just five things.   I will try not to over-explain.  In fact, I will attempt to explain nothing at all…..
Five things my mother did:
1.      Finished a degree while working full time and raising five children

2.      Have a beautiful garden all year round

3.      Invested her money wisely

4.      Tried her best to be a good mother

5.      Taught me to love books and reading

What are the things your mother or parents did that you are proud of or glad for?
