Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mothers out there! I know this sounds so cliche but I never appreciated my mother enough until I had kids of my own! Mothers are really the strongest most powerful people in the world and I am so extremely thankful God gave me one of the best! I love what a great friend my mom has become to me as I have grown up and learned how amazing she really is  I couldn't ever imagine not talking to my mom every single day. She is always so helpful and supportive of me and the best Gigi to my girls. 

Not only am I blessed with the most wonderful mother, but also the most wonderful mother in law, grandmothers, aunts, and sisters who have taught me so much about being the best mother I can be. I was so very thankful to be able to host these women for a Mother's Day lunch today. Jarrod grilled for us and we had the best time spending the beautiful afternoon with both of our families. (Amy got away before the "mom" picture).

Jarrod and the girls spoiled me this morning with some very special gifts. As much as I love a massage and am so looking forward to scheduling it soon, Hadley's hand made (and I believe somewhat recycled from her preschool crafts) are really treasures for this mommy. 

Not sure where the whole helping with the laundry part came from but it's a sweet thought anyways right? 


I am so thankful that God chose me to mother these girls. I know it's my job to wash their clothes and comb their hair, feed their bellies and wash their little booties, love and play with them and teach them right from wrong... But most of all, it is my job as their mother to teach them about Jesus and his love for them! I can only pray that I can be the very best mother that God wants me to be. He has entrusted me with these precious blessings and I can only hope that I can help them to grow up to be strong beautiful God fearing women the way my mother has done for me!

We also got to celebrate Baby Hudson's baby dedication today at church! So thankful and happy for my sweet friend Leslie and her precious baby as she celebrates her first Mother's Day today! Hadley was so excited to get to see baby Hud.

On another note... My heart aches so for those that are sad today. I know there are some absolutely wonderful ladies who are longing so to be a mother and there are those who are missing their mothers today. I pray for these people on this special day! I know God has a plan for you that is greater than we could ever imagine!

Happy Mother's Day to all the super women out there! Moms really are super heroes!
