I love being a mother! I love having a mother! I am so grateful to have such a wonderful family.
When I picked Milo up from daycare the other day he handed me a vase (a plastic cup) with four precious flowers in it. The flowers were made from cutout tracings of his little hands taped to pipe cleaners. Attached was a note that said, "When you look at the petals of the flowers, my fingers are what you see. Someday when I am all grown up, you'll still have this memory. Happy Mother's Day."
So sweet and so true. All these moments (both challenging and gratifying) are held so close to my heart. I love my children with everything that I've got and I'm so proud to put them first. As a mother, I now know what my mom sacrificed for me. Thank you mom! Happy mothers day to you, to me, and to all the hard working, tender loving mama's out there.
