First, though...I must give all credit to my sweet Mom. I always knew she was great...but now having two kids, I am amazed how she raised all three of us with grace, love and what seemed like greatest of ease. And I am pretty sure we were the equivalent of a circus. I know she had a good sidekick in my Dad, for sure, but she was able to be our mom for all those years and then have a seamless transition into being my best friend. When it happened, I am not sure, but I am forever grateful for the mother she was, is and will continue to be.
So how was my mother's day? Pretty great. I got to sleep in, enjoy my family and even have a little "me" time for exercise. I got a beautiful pendant necklace with each child's name hand stamped into metal, a book I have been coveting from Kelle Hampton and a beautiful hand written card. And a chorus of "Happy Mother's Day!" from sweet Anna.
I have to thank my husband for helping me become a mom (I certainly couldn't do it without him...well, I guess I could...Ah, I digress, you get my point). And for my two babies that make me the mom I am. I only hope I can do them justice.
