This year Mother's Day is extra special now that I am the momma to our sweet Olivia. I am so blessed to be her mother and take care of her each and every day. This morning was wonderful for so many reasons... Olivia slept till almost 8am, my husband brought me coffee in bed, I received the most amazing cards, texts, and phone calls from loved ones, and I have a beautiful purple orchid plant sitting on my counter. I am truly blessed and spoiled with love.
I will always say that I have big shoes to fill and an amazing role model in my mom. She has been the most amazing mother and friend throughout my 27 years of life and continues to be an amazing support and influence in my life and for Olivia. She will always be the sweet Nana to my little one and truly my best friend. To my mom... you have set an amazing example for me on what it means to be a great mom, you have taught me, guided me, supported me, and loved me through so many things and times in my life. I cherish our relationship more that you will ever know and thank the heavens for you daily. Love you!
The other amazing mother figure in my life is my mother-in-law Carlene. She is the best when it comes to mother-in-law's and I am truly blessed. She has been so supportive and helpful for us this past year as my husband and I have journeyed into parenthood. She is great listener, a great friend, and a wonderful grandma to Olivia. Love you Carlene and thank you for being an amazing support to me during the good times and the bad.
To all the moms out there, we should pat ourselves on the back for a job well done in taking care of our children and our families. Motherhood is a 24 hour a day and 7 day a week job and the most rewarding thing possible in life. Hope you all have a wonderful day!
