What a wondeful day to celebrate our beautiful Mother's. Since becoming a mom myself, this day is even more special than ever. No, not because now I'm celebrated too, but because I now know what it truly means to be a mom. The countless hours you go thinking about the well-being of your child, making sure that they always feel loved and know you are there, keeping them clean and healthy physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally, and so much more.
I am so grateful for my mom. I owe so much to her. She is the most selfless person I know. She is always running around doing for others, and takes very little time just for herself. We have been through SO much together. I can't even begin to name what we have conquered as a twosome! But, truth be told, I wouldn't change a thing. I love that we share those experiences. I love that no one can take that away from us. Every girl should have that bond with their mom in some way or another. To be able to say that you share something that no one else does. I love you so much mom. I know that I don't always say it, but you mean the world to me. You do so much for me. You are always willing to help me out, and that is something I appreciate beyond words. Jaiya loves you SO much and she can see how much you adore her. You two love each other's company equally and that does my heart good knowing you are so close.
And to Candi.
Oh my goodness, I am one lucky girl. I swear even as a child I was dreaming about the day I would get married and have babies. Wondering what family I would be a part of. And here I am. I'm 25 years old, and married to my best friend, with a beautiful 1 1/2 year old, and I have the best in-laws EVER. I have to thank you for raising Dustin the way you did. He is so compassionate, loving, and selfless, just like you. You are so good to us. You are willing to do anything to help us out. You have been so sweet to help out with Jaiya while I get through school and take the time to study. I would not have gotten through it without you. She loves you so much, and you can tell she knows how much you love her. She makes it a point to walk over almost every day! We have had many long conversations, and know each other so well from that. The more I know about you, the more I admire you. You are a great women who has done so much with her life. You should be so proud, I know I am. And most of all, thank you for loving me like your own.
And to both of you: Thank you for being you. I am so blessed to have great examples to look up to. I try to emulate you both, and become what I aspire to be: the perfect Mother just like you.Enjoy your day! XO
And, gorgeous to boot!
