This site is a tribute to my mom and best friend, Terri Hale. She is an amazing woman, mother, and friend, and I hope this site helps make Mothers Day 2006 the best ever!
So here's what you need to know about my mom...
She either loves you or hates you - but when she loves, she loves fiercely. She doesn't beat around the bush or try and hide her feelings. She tells it like it is. She will defend you to the death. She doesn't apologize for her beliefs. She is honest and upstanding. She can make you laugh so hard, your stomach hurts. She loves to act silly and knows when to act serious. She refuses to give up and will go down swinging before doing so. She adores her children. She loves her God. She prays until her prayer book is worn ragged...then she prays some more. Her granddaughters are the apple of her eye and the center of her universe. She sticks to it until it's done...whatever "it" may be. She is one of the biggest MTSU Blue Raider fans you will ever meet. She will call you out if you wrong her loved ones. She has a tender heart. She is the champion of the underdog. She led me to the Lord. She's been known to dance around the room like a maniac. She can say something normal in a way that makes it hilarious. She loves the beach. She has five sisters. She'll play with my hair for hours...just because she knows how much I love it. She fancies herself a former basketball star. She calls to say good night every night before bed. She has had one husband her whole life. She and my dad can make each other laugh like no two people I have ever seen. She makes her own rules. She has a cat that worships her. Her grandbabies call her "Gammie." She never gives up. She doesn't believe in herself enough. She is a worrywart. She spends all summer tinkering in the yard. She loves warm weather. She grew up in Rockvale. She's had the the same two best friends since she was 6. She looks younger than she is. She faces her fears. She is beautiful, through and through.
She is my best friend.
I love you, Mom...and I am so thankful to you for the hours of prayer and the lifetime of love. Here's to you this Mother's Day. May it be the best ever!

Best Friends / Barbara Clark (Best Friend )
I should have known that only one of your daughters could capture you so perfectly. Every word made me smile because I had flashbacks of you in every description. You, my friend, make me smile even when I'm not with you. ...
Happy Mother's Day / Henry
Nice to meet you recently in New York. Have a wonderful Mother's Day and let the kids spoil you rotten!
