Unforgettable Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all you hardworking, deserving mothers out there!  My Mother's Day weekend was one I will never forget.  I am so, so, so thankful for my family.  I am truly blessed and on days like this, I really feel fortunate to have such wonderful people in my life.

Starting with my own mother, of course.  Mom, you have always shown me the most inspiration about not only being a great mother, but a great person.  You are so patient, Christ-like, giving, caring, sincere, and thoughtful and I cannot say enough about you.  You love Elizabeth, Alex, and Grayson like no other and I am inspired by you daily.  Thank you for being my mother and now Bella.

My grandmother is probably the best person I know.  She is so kind and caring and generous.  She is Grams.  I hope to be half the person she is.  I am proud for my child and stepchildren to know and love her.  This family would not be without her.  I love you Grams!

Alex and Elizabeth have been a part of my life for several years now.  We have grown closer over the past years and I am so proud to be their stepmother.  I could not ask for better children in my life.  I love y'all like my own!  You are both the best big brother and sister to Grayson!

Grayson, you are not old enough to understand my love for you.  I was born to be a mother and I knew it from when I was a little girl.  I love you with all of my heart and hope to be the best mommy you could ever ask for.  You make my heart so full.  You are loved!

My beautiful family

And because I thought this was so cute and thoughtful, I am sharing my lovely Mother's Day card from Alex.

Looks just like me;)

Translation: "Nice.  I like everything she gets me."
How darn cute!
