I want to wish all the Mamas out there a Happy Mother's Day! (I'm still sick and on Nyquil so hopefully this all comes out right!) I think it's hard to even comprehend the hard work and sacrifice we go through as moms. And we do it all because of the unconditional love we have for our children. I know that normally we have our children thank us on Mother's Day, but my two babies are still too little to understand what today means so I want to thank them for making me a Mama.
To my little girl: You bring a ray of sunshine into my life ever day. Every time I see you smile it makes all of the pain of tantrums, potty training and your stubbornness melt away. I love that we will be siting at the kitchen table and out of the blue you will say to me "I love you mama" it still brings a tear of joy to my eye. I have dreamed about having a little girl since I was a teenager, but I never imagined how much of a blessing in my life you would be.
I knew when I held you in my arms at the hospital, my life would be changed for ever and it has been. You have brought so much meaning and purpose to my life thank you so much baby girl.
To my handsome little boy: You are growing up so fast, I keep thinking you are still a little baby (your Daddy keeps reminding me otherwise) but you are going to be turning one this month. I don't know what I did do deserve such a sweet little boy. You are always smiling I love your smile and it reminds me everyday that I should be happier. There are times I just want to hold you and I don't want to let go.
Like most Mamas I don't want to lose having a little baby, but I know you will just become an amazing little boy. I can't wait to watch you grow and see all the great things you will do. Thank you so much for blessing my life.
I also want to thank my Mom, but not for all the things she has done for me (which is a lot) I want to thank her for her greatest strength today, being a wonderful Grandma!
I know she was a little hesitant about being a Grandma, I think as women we feel it makes us old. But age is not what a Grandma is. (Mom you are not old!) But you are a Grandma and one of the best
grandma's I have ever seen. You have such love and compassion for your grandchildren. You would do anything for your grandchildren, and they are too young to tell you right now, but I know that they love every minute they spend with you. Thank you for being such a wonderful Grandmother (and Mother).
I also want to thank my Mother In Law today, she was never the typical Mother In law who disapproved of me dating and marrying her only son, instead she always accepted me and treated me like a daughter from the very beginning. Thank you for always making me feel like an integral part of the family.
Happy Mother's day to all the great Mamas out there! I hope you are having a wonderful day. So put you feet up, relax, sit back and enjoy this day that honors all of your hard work!
