Mother's Day 2010

Not only have I been blessed with a Mama who has loved me from the start, who encouraged me to do my best, who never let me give up, who let me make mistakes and learn from them, who has been a source of strength and advice now that I am a Mama ... but in the past 5 years my life has been doubly blessed by the presence of another woman, Jeramie's mom, Amy.

I realize how incredibly lucky I am to have such a strong, positive relationship with my in-laws. The support that both of my moms have given me, especially in the past year, is nothing short of phenomenal. I know that they have a direct impact on how I am as a mother, and at times I'll do something and find myself saying "Oh my word, I am becoming my Mama!"

And, let me tell you, that would not be a bad thing.

If I could be half the mama that mine has been to me, Ethan would never doubt how much he is loved and wanted. The same holds true for Amy. Both of these women love their children (and grandchild) with a passion I can only hope to emulate.

Mama and Amy, thank you for being the wonderful mothers & grandmothers that you are! We are so thankful to call you ours. We love you!

Happy Mother's Day.

My darling daughter.This is the best Mother's Day gift you could ever have given me. I have prayed since you and Jessi were born for guidance to do and be the best mother I could be. I have failed at a lot of things in my life, but this testimony makes me realize that, yes, I did do something right. Happy Mother's Day , this second one in your life, and I pray that you will keep on celebrating them until Ethan is an old man. I love you.
