first of all i’d like to say happy mother’s day day to YOU!!! hope your day is fantastic.


my and my little joy

i am excited to indulge in much time with my boy.  it’s going to be fun.  it’s not that hanging out with him today is any different than any other day, however, hallmark has deemed this day a holiday so now he is required to be nice to me today.  teehee.  he is just as excited as i am to indulge in some homemade pecan waffles for our special breakfast together.  yummmmmm.  i say homemade not because the batter is from scratch but because i’m using a fantastic batter that i found and i’m using the waffle maker.  that is homemade, right? teehee

the other day, i was very excited to receive my precious little homemade gift of a card which is always better than store bought, and grass grown by myles’ own hands.  sooooo cute.  BUT, how in the heck do i save grass in my stash of precious handmade memories???? i’m sure i’ll find a way.  you know you’re a parent when you find yourself trying to scrapbook grass grown from a kindergartner.  haha.  who does that anyway?  mothers of course!

anyhoo, i feel really fortunate today because i know the extreme blessing of knowing and loving and shaping and having this precious boy child in my care.  when i really think about it, i get to do the best and most important job in the world. yikes!  to realize that when you’re a mom you’re turning out little people who will become fantastic productive citizens of the world, one tends to be extremely purposeful about how motherhood is approached.  and of course that would be with care, love, support, nurturing, lots of attention and being self aware.  daily, i am trying to be careful to influence his life with healthy habits, morals, positive thinking and a healthy way of life (physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally).  it’s a constant process  and i find myself growing as my myles grows.  just as children have growing pains/pangs, mothers experience our own fair share.  but as i encourage myself to forge ahead i also give myself kudos today for being the best mom that i can be and it is well worth the gift of grass and the better than store bought homemade card.

i celebrate being a mommy to not just my precious boy a. myles, but also to my precious girl amber lynn.  what a gift just to simply know the two of these little ones.  my heart is full and today i am experiencing a wealth of emotions.  BUT,  today, the most prominent feeling, emotion, thought, in my heart, the word that comes to mind is GRATEFUL. 

i’m grateful to be a mommy and grateful to my mom and all the women who have been a mommy influence in my life…i’m grateful to you!
