Mother's are so Special...

With a very special love. They watch us and protect us. Guide us and direct us, back to our home above.

My heart is overjoyed on this Mother's day. I feel so blessed to have been given the opportunity to be a mother. The calling came earlier than I had expected but I would not want it any.other.way. Being a mom is the most rewarding and most challenging role and I absolutely LOVE every minute of it. I will never forget the day I became a mom.

Looking at this picture brings back SO MANY emotions...

Dearest Mother, I Love You
LDS Children's Songbook; Page 206
Gentle words I hear you say.
Your kind hands help me each day.
You're my mother kind and true.
Dearest mother, I love you.

I don't think that I will ever be even half the mother that my mom is. She truly is a gem! She is charitable, patient, virtuous, kind, loving, generous and so beautiful inside and out. She is such an amazing example to me and so many others. I love her so very much!

I am also grateful for my maternal grandmother, "Grandma Sweetums." She is such a neat woman and I love her dearly.

And how could I not mention my paternal grandmother, "Grandma Much" She sometimes says some crazy things but she sure does love with her whole heart! Love her!

I have also been blessed to have married a man who was raised by such an incredible mother. My mother in law Janice has the most infectious smile and is so kind, caring and loving. She is such a Christlike example to me and I am so blessed to have her in my life.

Me and my girl on Mother's Day 2011. I LOVE HER :)

A GORGEOUS gift from the Mr.

Hattie and I also made a little Mother's Day gift for the Grandma's but they have yet to be gifted so those pics will have to wait until later.

Happy Mother's Day!
