Happy Mother's Day!

May 10, 2020

To my Quinn - Thank you for making me a mom. Thank you for giving me the greatest joy this world has to offer. You are truly my angel baby, my rainbow baby, my blessing. You make my world and my day brighter, your laugh is literally my favorite sound, and when you say Mama, I'm pretty sure my heart breaks. You have fulfilled something in me that I didn't know I was missing. You're the best thing I've ever done. I hope you always know how loved you are, how prayed for you are, and how cherished you are. I promise to always be here for you, love you, and give you advice like my mom still gives me.  Like I tell you every night before bed, you're my sweetest baby and I love you the very most.

To my mama - Thank you for being the lady I call every day with every question imaginable. Thank you for letting me tell you random stories and acting interested even if you aren't. Thank you for teaching me how to cook steak, chicken, and eggs. Thank you for helping me decorate every house I've ever lived in. Thank you for coaching me through this mom thing, for being patient, for being kind, and for being you. You have taught me so much about how to be the best mom just by watching you with us kids, especially Erin. The grace you have on a daily basis is astounding. I'm so lucky you are my mom. I literally couldn't imagine my life without you in it every day. I love you mama.

To my mother-in-law - Thank you for welcoming me into your family so seamlessly. Thank you for raising a son, I am so proud to call my husband and father of my kid(s!). Thank you for being a sounding board for all my questions, loving my baby, and never letting me feel like an outsider. Thank you for your kindness, your grace, and your love. I absolutely won the mother-in-law jackpot with you Jane, and I thank God for you everyday day.

To all the mamas - oh my gosh, mamas, you deserve to be praised every single day. If quarantine has taught me anything it's that moms work way harder than anyone, and deserve to be celebrated every day. Mamas - you are strong, you are resilient, you are a goddess, the lover of your family, and the backbone of your family. Being a mom is hard work because it's work we all want to do so desperately, loving our family, but it's hard at the same time! It's a job that never ends, because even when the kids go to sleep, you're planning for more, all while continuing to worry about their safety. It's a never-ending job, but it's the very best job. I hope today your family celebrates you extra and you feel all the love.

To all the mama's out there yearning to be mamas -  I want you to know I'm praying for you and for all your future babies. Just because you don't have a baby currently in your hands, doesn't mean you aren't a mama yet. I'm pretty sure, being a mom is something that starts in your heart. I am praying for you. I am praying the desires of your heart become a reality sooner than later. I am praying you know you are loved. God has this amazing plan for you and for your family. While it may be hard to see His plan or the way it's going to work in your life, I pray you feel peace today. And for the day you see the positive pregnancy test line, or you're holding your baby, I will be celebrating you the most. I will be screaming from the mountain top. You are loved, mama.

To all the people who have lost their mamas - I cannot imagine the pain you feel not having your mom in your life. Today, I'm sending you all my love and my hugs. I'm praying you feel your mom today and know she's watching over you, as all moms do. Your mom loves you, too.

To all the moms, in whatever form that may be for you or look like for you - I hope you feel loved and celebrated today. You are incredible. You are loved. You are tough. You are a mama.

Happy Mother's Day, friends!
