Happy Mother's Day!!!!

Happy mother's day to all of the moms in my life! You've made me who I am and I don't know what I'd do without you! Each of you have had an impact on my life an taught me how to be a mother and wife. Thank you. Now, if we could all live just a LITTLE closer life would be perfect. I miss you so much! I'm thinking a nice cruise and just the girls.

I celebrate this day for the 6th year. This is the best and only job that I ever truly wanted. Not many people would admit that. I've wanted to be a mommy from the time I could nurse my baby dolls. I remember in high school when people asked what I wanted to do with my life and all I wanted to say was, " I want to be a wife and a mother." Somehow it never seemed like that was a right answer. I was supposed to enter into some great career. I graduated from college with a degree and high marks but this is still what I wanted more than anything else in the world. I could do other things, and do them well, but I was just waiting until I entered this chapter. I live for this role. I find motherhood exhilarating, exciting, and yes, at times, exasperating. I am finding a nice balance between doing things for my kids and doing things just for me. But it is always as a mother that I enter the task at hand. Today, I celebrate my fabulous life as a mom!

Okay,Sunshine way to make me cry! You are such a good daughter, wife, mother and just a very good person. I totally relate to the "I just want to be a Mom" thing. It was the only career that I wanted as well. Little did I know that my days of mothering would last for 50 years. I became a Mommy at 16 and I will be 65 when Autumn graduates from High School. I truly feel that the most important thing a woman does is to be a Mom. It's not always easy and not even always fun but when I look into the eyes of my children, each one of the 11, there is something unique and wonderful about each one and yes, even though everyone knows that I love you best, Lacey, there is enough love in a mothers heart for as many children as God can bless her with! I cherish you, Lacey and am incredibly proud of you!
Hugs and Kisses,

That was very sweet, and I feel EXACTLY the same way. I did other things with my life until I had a child, but what I'm doing now as a mother is all I've ever wanted to do! I'm so glad that others understand how that feels, too, because so many people I know think I'm crazy for loving this job, and yet I do. You're obviously a wonderful mother and your kids are very lucky indeed. And I feel lucky to have you for a friend! Happy Mother's Day!

Hi Lacey,
I hadn't stopped by in awhile and I'm glad I picked today. Your photos and words make a perfect post. And then, I just read your Mom's comment - teary eyed now I am.
Happy Belated Mother's Day!
