Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day! What a special day this is!

I received a card from my best friend, who is also my minis "Aunt Kristy", Mini #2's godmother, and is expecting her first child this fall which I am THRILLED about.

The message in the card was just beautiful, so I thought I would share:

Motherhood is watching a sleeping child

and not remembering

how you were before this tiny miracle came in to your life.

It's kissing away sleepy teardrops and singing precious lullabies.

It's being able to fix a broken toy and gently bandage a knee.

It's having a childlike imagination that plans backyard treasure hunts and

telling the most wonderful bedtime stories.

Motherhood is the perfect blend of being strong-willed and gentle hearted,

of wisdom, innocence, and love.

I am so thankful to have such a wonderful mother, but also a woman that is an even better grandmother! My children adore her and it is so exciting to watch the mother that loved me, took care of me, supported me, and guided me now love and adore these two children!

My children are also so incredibly blessed to have such amazing women in their lives!

Happy Mother's Day to aunts, godmothers, friends, sisters, grandmothers, and more! Mother's day is also for celebrating those that aren't yet mothers. What a special blessing these future children will have to be born to you.

Enjoy today!
