Happy Mother's Day to my sweet mom!!
I love my mom! She is such a great example to me of sacrifice, everything she does is for her kids and family. I am always amazed at how much she has on her plate and how well she handles it all. It's always been like that, but I don't think I really appreciated it until I went away to college. She has always done so much for me, and supported me in everything I've done, or wanted to do. She is so talented, with anything from crafts, to scrapbooking, to cooking and baking, to presentation, to her job (she really is VERY smart, and VERY good at her job!). I like to think that I got a little bit of her homemaking gene, not necessarily because I'm great at it, but because I love many of the same things as my mom, and strive to be like her in many ways. I feel like my mom is truly one of my best friends. I love to call and her chat for hours. We are both talkers, so sometimes we both get so excited about something that we talk over each other, but there is never a dull moment. I definitely connect with my mom on so many levels, and I am so grateful that the Gospel is one of those. I am grateful for her strong testimony and the example it is to me. I love you mom and hope you have a wonderful, relaxing Mother's Day, you deserve it!
Happy Mother's Day to my sweet Mother In Law, Heidi!
Heidi and Nate... how cute is she?! (I made that blanket by the way! :)
I have to say that I totally lucked out in the in-law department. I have THE BEST mother in law a girl could ask for. She is such a great example to me of a mother. She sacrificed so much for her children, and continues today, to be so self-less and ever mindful of her children and their families. Heidi is one of the strongest women I know. She is always thinking and asking thought provoking questions, and constantly seeking growth. From day one of mine and Nate's courtship, he has never said a negative word about her. He loves and respects her so much, and to me, that is the greatest gift that any mother could receive from her children. I only hope that my boys will talk so sweetly, and lovingly about me some day. We love you Heidi, Happy Mother's Day!
**My own Mother's Day is actually going wonderfully, especially considering that Nate has been out of town for the past 3 days, so it's just been me holding down the fort. Last night, Sayer only woke up once, at 4:30 am, so I got an ok nights sleep. Asher woke up a little while before his brother, so I was able to have some cuddle time with the little dude before Sayer woke up and needed to be fed. Sayer was an angel baby this morning, and fell asleep in 2 seconds after I wrapped him up. Both of my kids are already bathed and dressed and ready to go to church at 12:30. And to top it all off, both of them have been asleep for almost 2 hours, so I was able to shower and get ready and eat breakfast, and write this post in peace. Maybe later today, I'll even get a nap!
Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there. You are all such great examples to me!
