Happy Mommy Day!

Today I want to take a moment to recognize some special ladies in my life. From childhood birthday parties to my wedding day to learning how to raise my children, I have so many wonderful memories with my mom. We still talk on the phone pretty much daily & have lots of laughs when we're together. Looking back at my younger years, I now realize that she was totally Superwoman. She worked full time, attended every event I was ever involved in, ironed everyone's clothes for the coming day & somehow even managed to gather her family around the table for a hot breakfast each morning at 6:30 am. Mom, my hat's off to you!

Upon joining Justin's family, I gained another amazing mom. Karen & I talk like girlfriends on the phone or when we're together, & she is one of the greatest prayer warriors I know. I am so blessed to have her in my life.I've also been fortunate enough to get to call the lady on the right of this picture Grandma. My own grandparents are gone, but Justin's welcomed me with open arms & have doted on me as one of their crew.These ladies are such a huge part of my life, & I'm so glad that I get to love them & learn from them.
As I celebrate my second year as a mother, my cup is filled to overflowing with joy. Thank you, Lord, for these blessings!Justin taught the kids last weekend to say "Happy Mommy Day," which Jake has mastered quite nicely. Music to my ears!
