Happy Mother's Day

May 13, 2018


Happy Mother's Day to all of my fellow moms!  I always love celebrating this day and am always fortunate to be able to spend it with my wonderful family, my mom and my mother-in-law and father-in-law so it becomes extra special.  Mother's Day is nothing fancy in our house but usually a time where my kids give me a little extra love and give me the most awesome cards with sweet words...that means more than anything!  It's not about the gifts but about feeling appreciated as a mom for all we do and making sure my mom(s) feel the same love from our family.  


Although being a mom is the absolute best thing in the world and I am so blessed with awesome kids, it's also the toughest job I've ever had.  I'm normally in "full-on mom" mode from the second I wake up to the minute I go to bed.  My kids are a little older and, for the most part, self-sufficient but I still aming a breakfast, lunch and dinner making, laundry folding, mom-uber driving, dog mess clean, homework checking, run ragged mom everyday and it's exhausting but so fulfilling!  I know my own mom has been such an incredible influence as well as support system in my life and I hope my kids feel the same way about me.  I'm their biggest cheerleader and critic and always there to pick them up when they fall.  I won't lie and say my kids are grateful everyday for all the things I do, I certainly wasn't as a kid either.  But I do rest assured they know I love them, want nothing but the best for them and that is the best I can do. 


I'm by no means a perfect mom (I can completely lose it with my kids on a regular basis) but I believe they see me as human, making mistakes, trying to learn from them and trying to be an overall good person.  That's one of the most important values I try to instill in my kids...to be a good person.  I want my kids to leave their mark on the world, spread kindness, lift up others, have a servant's heart, and to always keep their faith as the center of their life.  There is so much evil in the world so I pray my kids can inspire the people around them to love and support others.  


Okay, enough of my mushy mom moment (I get a little soft when talking about my kiddos), I really just wanted to hop on here and wish all of you a Happy Mother's Day!  We are off to brunch and to enjoy this beautiful Texas weather.   I pray each of you are spending time with family and friends and doing your share to spread joy to others.
