Happy Mother's Day

Today I am thankful for a wonderful Mom. I realize having children of my own much she sacrificed and worked in my behalf. My Mom has a amazing way of making you feel like you can do anything. She makes the most boring things incredibly fun. I don't believe my Mom has ever met a stranger. Her happy personality is contagious. And the older I get the wiser she gets and the distance between us seems to feel  larger then ever before. I love you MOM...have a wonderful day!

I also need to to thank Patty my step-mom. She has been a wonderful influence in my life. I admire her ability to teach even when she doesn't think she is. She is patient and kind. I am thankful for her faith and her example to make good choices. I am thankful she has loved me as her own...for so many years, when it probably would  have been easier to not. Thank you Patty...I love you.

And to the last person I get to call my Mom. Jennie my mother-in-law. Thank you for being another Mom to me. I instantly felt love from you. I am thankful for the way you raised a wonderful son..who is now a amazing husband. I am thankful that we can always sit and visit and I always feel like we are close. I am thankful for your testimony of the gospel. It shines through you in all that you do. I think you are so beautiful inside and out. This day I want to thank you and tell you I love you.

And since I am so blessed to still have my Grandmas who are now Great Grandmas to my boys...Thank you for your wisdom, your advice and love. I understand more then ever that it takes a village to raise children. And you are such a crucial part to my village. I love to see my boys eyes light up when they see you. They love you as I loved my great grandma. She  had one of the biggest influences on my life as you are now to my boys. Thank you for your love and support and wonderful example to me. I hope to grow up to be just like each of you. I love you! Happy Mother's Day!
