Happy Mother's Day!

No card to share today!  Instead I wanted to wish you a Happy Mother's Day!  I hope that you are celebrating your mother's and/or being celebrated!  I am so thankful for being a mother!  I love it!  I know there may be some of you dreaming of being a mother and it's just not happening, I hope that this day isn't hard for you.  I pray that one day you will be.  Today has been a wonderful day so far.  A wonderful service at church.  I love how my pastor spoke that any woman who is over 18 is a mother somehow, or will be.  That he was mothered by not only his own mother but other woman in his life, for some this may be the mothering that they will be able to do but it will make a difference in a child's life.  I try to take a photo each mother's day of my kids and me.


My husband took a good photo didn't he?  This picture shows my kids personality perfectly.  Ariel looks so sweet and pretty, Carter's mouth is open wide in a huge laugh of a smile!  He loves to laugh!  I found myself a lavender shirt that matched Ariel and Carter's outfits so I knew it would be perfect to wear on Mother's Day!  It only took me a few days to realize that my new shirt was the same color, I totally didn't realize it when I bought it, too bad it's hard to see in the picture!

I love being a mom!  Especailly to these two cuties!  I am so blessed.  I knew I would love being a mom and I was right!  I love playing with them; kissing and cuddling them, I love dressing them (maybe too much); I love smelling them;  teaching them; showing them the world; I may not love discplining them but I know how important it is; and I love who they are and helping them grow to be the best them they can be!  And I love my husband for being such a wonderful father to them.  And for sharing the desire for me to be at home with them and seeing the importance of it! 

Hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day!
