Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day! I know I am a day late but I was out of town all weekend for my sister's bridal shower and bachelorette party. It was a fun but exhausting weekend and I will leave the festivities and pictures for another post.

I am forever blessed and thankful for my mom. Her love, patience, understanding, sacrifice, & friendship have been a tremendous gift to me. She was and has been one of the most influential people in my life. She encompasses everything that a mother should be. I love you Mom!

Ethan, Logan, & Christian~ Through being your mom I am convinced there is no better job in the world then the job of "mom." The reward of being your mother is one of my life's greatest blessings. Everyday you make me want to strive to be the best mom that I can possibly be. You teach me to embrace every smile, every sound of laughter, and every hug and kiss. I am so proud to be your mother! I love you!

Mia~ Though I have yet to see your face and hold you, our journey to you has taught me some very important lessons in motherhood. I hope to always be an example to you and your brothers about never giving up, keeping the faith, and patience on the path that God has planned for you. I pray that this is the last Mother's Day that we are apart. I cannot wait to be your mother! I pray that as we wait you experience the love of a mother. I pray that someone is "mothering" you until it is time for us to meet.
