Happy Mother's Day

Sunday, May 12, 2013

Just wanted to quick wish all you mothers out there and my own mom and mother in law a "Happy Mother's Day!" I hope you each had wonderful days and were loved on and treated extra special by your children today! I had a great day going to church with my family, then we went to my Grandma's house for lunch. After naps in the afternoon we went to the Revolution service where Grayden recited Psalm 100 in front of everyone with his classmates (good job buddy), and then went to Mindy and Kyle's house for dinner with my family. 

I also wanted to let those of you who are not mothers (yet) or who have a child(ren) in Heaven, or whose mothers are not in their lives anymore that you were heavy on my heart today. I prayed for you often. I know many of you struggle on this day and I wanted to tell you that you were in my mind and in my prayers. 

Me and my boys before church this morning, so blessed to have been chosen to be their mommy. 

I know I am far from the perfect mom, but I try my best to nurture them, and love them, and teach them  about Jesus. I often lose my patience with them and get angry, I don't always give them all the attention they deserve or tell them how proud I am of them often enough. 
But, I pray that they always know how deeply I love them, and how thankful I am for the blessings they are to me. I ask God to help me be the best mother I can be and parent them in a way that pleases Him. 

I love you boys! Thanks for making my day so special!

Happy Mother's Day to you too! I just celebrated my 2nd Mother's Day after years of infertility. Those who are not mother's yet weighed heavy on my heart yesterday too. I have been there so the I know the feeling all too well.

I feel the same as you re: trying to be the best mother I can be. It's hard work! From what I can tell though, you are doing a great job :)
