First of all I want to say Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful moms. I hope all of you had a fantastic day with your families. My girls and hubby certainly know how to spoil me; they gave me the absolute most perfect day.
It all began with a quiet shower alone (anyone who has children knows how amazing this is); Steve took all the girls to get donuts.
Of course, they had some gifts for me and I loved them very much. My favorite ones are always the ones they made themselves. This Mother’s Day I felt so loved by all my girls; I can’t even begin to express how much I needed these moments meant to me. My heart is full.
As a mom I have many moments where I doubt myself and my mothering (lately it hasn’t been any different), then Sophia writes me this letter….
Wow, this definitely brought tears to my eyes after reading it. My girls really know what I need, when I need it.
After opening gifts we took our time getting ready for brunch. We didn’t need to rush or hurry; we made our way peacefully into the car. It was a perfect morning. This mama HATES rushing.
We enjoyed a wonderful brunch with Mimi, Papa, Gigi, Auntie Ade, and Uncle Scotty. We sure missed Uncle Fran, Aunt Sarah and Baby Maizy.
Sophia loved that we were seated right next to the dessert table.
We ended our day with a wonderful steak dinner, made by none other then my hubby. Anyone, that knows Steve knows he is one of the best cooks when it comes to steaks. He sure knows his way around the grill. It was the perfect ending to my perfect day.
My girls have my whole heart for their whole life…..
Since becoming a mom I have become a better person. Each and every day they teach me what life is all about. I have learned so much about myself, life and everything in between since the day Sophia was born and even more as our family grew and grew. I am beyond blessed to call these four girls my daughters. They are growing into such amazing little people and I cannot wait to see where their lives take them and the changes they will make in this world.
Since becoming a mother
I am more patient.
I am more forgiving.
I am more prayerful.
I am more compassionate.
I am more mindful.
I am more joyful.
I am more appreciative.
I am more thankful.
I am more blessed.
My daughters are truly my angels. God knew exactly what he was doing when he gave me my girls. God doesn’t make mistakes.
