Mother's Day

It's Mother's Day weekend and for the past 10 years Mother's Day has been bittersweet. I'm so privileged to be a mom and yet I miss my mom. I wish I could shower my mom with flowers and thank her over and over for all she taught me on how to be a great mom.  I long for her to see her grand kids grow and get to know their personalities.  I wish they could have met my mom (although my mom would have spoiled those kids rotten and loved every minute of it).
So on this Mother's Day I just want to thank God for the blessing He gave me in my life of a mom who was my shoulder to cry on, my best friend, my confidant, and sometimes my partner in crime.  She truly has made me into the mom I am today and I look forward to the day I will see her face to face again.

This picture was 1 month and 2 days before my mom went to be with Jesus.  It was the best she had been in months and I'm so grateful that God gave her my wedding day as a special day for both of us.
And I'm thankful for these blessings that call me Mom every day.  Sometimes, I want to cry because I fail them, but God gives strength when I am weak.  These precious kids are what make every tear and triumph worth it!!!

Love my Jadyn, Gabe, & MJ
And love my precious Job growing inside my belly (and kicking me right now as I type).
Happy Mother's Day!
