Being a mom has been the most wonderful gift. It has changed me and made me into a better person. I am so thankful to have three beautiful children and one on the way. I never expected to be 28 and have 4 children 4 and under. Here's to life and God's wonderful, yet unexpected blessings!
I not only thank God for giving me the strength everyday to be a good mom, but I also thank the mom's in my life.
To my mom,
I am not sure how you did it, but you did! From what I remember growing up, you always seemed to be in control of the situation. I don't remember you mad or angry, unless you had a valid reason to be. You were always kind and loving. I remember you trying to teach us a lesson by using blocks. I don't remember what the lesson was, but I do remember thinking how smart you were for thinking of that :)
I am so thankful for you and I love you so much!
To my Grandma,
I wish I could have seen you as a young mom. I know you were a great mom, because you still are today. I am blessed to have such a close relationship with you, and all those summers I got to spend with you are unforgettable. Lindsey and I still talk about the fun we had.
I love hearing Taylynn and Preston talk about their GG and going to your house to visit. It reminds me of when I was their age and being so excited to visit you. I remember one visit, (I think it's one of my first memories at your house) we were about to head back home and you gave me a toy that looked like grapes, and smelled like grapes. I can still smell it today. In fact the other day I smelled it and it brought me back to that moment. I was sitting on the front porch swing when you gave it to me. I LOVED it!
So thank you for the little things like the grape toy and the big things like letting me bring my best friend to Louisiana with me. I have so many cherished memories because of you!
I love you!
I didn't have you around when I was a child, but I know you were a GREAT mom because of Aaron. He could not be a better father, thank you for bringing him up to be such a great man.
Thank you for bringing me into your family as one of your own. I am proud to be the first daughter you had :)
You not only are a great mom, but a great Oma! Thank you for all you do, we love you so much!
Although we don't get to see you as often as we'd like, we want you to know how much we love you and miss you.
I am not sure how you raised five, but we're getting close to matching that number (no we're really going to be done at four). I know you are a great mom, thank you for raising a great daughter who raised my wonderful husband.
We love you, Happy Mother's Day!
Wow, I have been blessed by these four women and my four babies. Thank you Lord!
