Happy Mother’s Day To All The Moms!

Today is my 10th year celebrating mothers day.  Over the last ten years, I have changed hundreds of diapers, woke up countless hours to nurse a child or take care of a sick child, comforted a hurt child, been yelled at, hit and much more.  And you know what, I wouldn’t take one single part of it back.  Because of top of those things I have been told I love you hundreds of times, had too many kisses to count, hugs galore, moments of giggles and laughter.  Tickle tournaments, sports games, wii faceoffs, smiles that are contagious.  Snuggles that feel cozy, silence that doesn’t have to be filled, secrets of “mommy i love you” and so much more.

Being a mom isn’t always easy but it’s always rewarding.  When I look at my kids eyes and see them light up when I walk into a room it makes me smile.  Motherhood is tough sometimes but more often than not the giggles beat out the moments of not so fun.  Ten years ago I became a mom and I will forever treasure being blessed more and more each day with my children.  While they are not who I am as a person they do complete who I am.  They give me strength during times I feel weak, make me laugh when I am sad.  And they teach me something new everyday.  My amazing children I love you more than you will ever know but I will do my very best to get it across to you!  Thank you for making me a mother!

To my mom, you are such a woman of great strength, character, compassion, hope, inspiration, faith and so much more.  To say you are my “idol” as a mom is an understatement.  I watched you work so hard through my life and it amazed me.  You have been there for me when times were tough and I needed an ear to listen.  There to cheer me on in life when I needed encouragement.  To pick me up when I had fallen down (figuratively and literally).  You laughed with me, cried with me (sometimes even for me), listened to me, cared for me, taught me.  You are the inspiration of all I hoped to be when I became a mother.  I love you Mom have a wonderful mothers day!

Now to all the mothers out there reading my blog, Happy Mothers Day!  If you want to leave your mom a comment or tell me your thoughts on  motherhood I would love to hear them.  Have a blessed day!
