Dear mothers of children all ages, you are so loved and appreciated for all of your hard work. From kissing boo boos to helping with homework, your love and devotion to your child does not go unnoticed. New and expectant mothers, you are holding a true gift. The sleepless nights, backaches and swollen ankles are sacrifices you are making to bring your darling child into this world. As you nurture and rock those precious babes, know that their coos and smiles are their thanks for all that you do. And especially to those mothers of angels in heaven. Know that your darling babes are looking down on you from Heaven. Though this day is painful to you, I ask God to comfort your hearts. I celebrate you and am sorry for your loss.
Stepmother Linda, thank you for all that you do for our family. I know it must not be easy to inherit 3 new children and 2 Grandchildren, but you make it look easy, by loving us as your own. Your positive nature and giving heart are truly amazing. We hope you know how loved and appreciated you are.
To my dear Mother in law Beth, your devotion to your family is the most incredible thing about you. I admire you so much and we love you and are so thankful for all that you do, including driving 400+ miles round-trip every other weekend to spend time with us. You are truly a blessing to us.
This weekend I thank my husband and my own daughter for making me a mother. Hallie Anne, your mother is so thankful for you. You are my greatest accomplishment. Though some days as a mother are not easy, you make is so easy to love you. I thank God every day that he chose me to be your mother.
Happy Mother’s Day weekend fellow mothers. This weekend I am wishing all the Moms out there a day of love and peace.
Finally, to my dear friend Larissa with Purple Moments Photography, thank you for the lovely Mother’s Day photos.
