Mother’s Day

Usually, I just use this blog for posting activities and pictures and don’t get into my feelings too often, but today I will.

I feel so blessed to be a mother.  I know so many who haven’t had that blessing yet.  My heart goes out to all those amazing women that struggle with infertility, aren’t married, or have some other reason that has kept them from having children or not having as many children as they would like.

I feel so blessed that my children have so many wonderful “second mothers.”  I have amazing women in my family and friends that are so good to my children and really are like second mothers to our kids.  I don’t think I would make it through sacrament meeting without some of these amazing women.

I feel so blessed to have the best mom in the world!!  (Really, if you know her, you know that she REALLY IS the best!).  I feel equally blessed to have such an amazing mother-in-law who raised such an amazing son!

I feel so blessed to have a heritage of amazing mothers, my grandmothers, great-grandmothers, and beyond.

I feel so blessed to have an amazing husband—who honors women, and makes me feel like I am the best mother in the world (even though I definitely am not).  I’ll spare you all the details of how much he spoiled me—this year especially!  Thanks Darin!!

Last, I am so thankful for these two cuties who have given me the special title of mother!

  Happy Mother’s Day 
to ALL you wonderful women!!
