This Mother's Day
I hope my boys grow up knowing just how much I love them. And that there is nothing else in this entire world I would rather be doing than raising them along with their dad. God knew what he was doing when he put us into families because it is so much more fulfilling than I ever thought it would be.
This Mother's Day was pretty fun because it was the first time that Cole got to sing me a little song along with all the other primary kids in Sacrament meeting. It was pretty cute, even if Cole had no clue what was going on and didn't sing a single word ;) What I loved most was the little gift that he made for me in primary. It was a little cutout clay heart made into a keychain that has is little finger print on it and his name etched into it. Cole was sooo excited to give it to me and for that reason I absolutely love. It's definitely not about what you get but it's seeing your kids get so excited about it-- that's the real gift they're giving!
I also wanted to tell my mom how much I love her! I remember being pretty insecure when I was younger, but I always knew that my mom (and my dad too) loved me just the way I was. They loved me for me and when you're an insecure teenager, that makes all the difference. I knew that they loved me because they told me but more than that, they showed me with their actions and their example every single day. I hope I can be that same kind of mom to my kids that my mom has been to me. I love you mom! Happy Mother's Day!
Oh, and a big shout out to Steve for making a fancy and delicious Sunday dinner and for getting me a whole hour massage at a place somewhere downtown!!!!!! I am beyond excited. Can't wait to redeem it. :)
