Happy Mother's Day!

Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ~Elizabeth Stone

A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie. ~Tenneva Jordan

I had such a wonderful Mother's Day! We started off by going to church. Then we went over to my mom's to eat lunch. My grandma came over. We had ribs and they were so yummy! After we ate we sat around and watched old home videos. It was a very nice relaxing day! I got wonderful cards and presents also.

I'm so lucky to have such a wonderful mother who has always been there for me. She taught me how to love. She taught me how to care. She taught me how to nurture. Thank you mom for loving me and taking such good care of me. Thank you for still taking care of me, even as an adult. Thank you for being such a good Nana to Haley, Blake, and Kate. There are not words to express the feelings I have for you. I love you more than you will ever know! Happy Mother's Day!

Saturday we went to Monticello to spend time with Linda,my mother-in-law. That afternoon we went to Hamburg to the Catfish Inn to see Aunt Carolyn and Uncle Jimmy(and to eat the yummy food!) Blake tried shrimp and corn for the first time and loved it! I'm so proud of him! I thought it was very important for Chris to see his mother for mother's day. Also because she is like another mother for me. I am so lucky to have such wonderful in-laws who love their sons, their sons wives, and all of their grandchildren. Thank you so much mom for all you do for us and all the love you show to my family! You are such a wonderful person and a great influence on all of us! I love all of our time together and only regret that we are not closer to see each other more often. I love you and so do Haley, Blake, and Kate. Thank you for being the awesome Mamaw that you are! Happy Mother's Day!

Not only am I lucky to have such a great mother and mother-in-law, I feel like I am the luckiest person in the world for having my 3 beautiful and sweet children. They are so loving and smart. I am so proud of them. They also love each other so much. Haley and Blake are such a big help with Kate. I never knew how much love you could have in your heart until I became a mother. I love Haley so much! I was so scared that I could never love another child as much as her. And when Blake came along, I saw that I absolutely could! He is my sweet little man, and he loves to give kisses and hugs! Kate is just as precious and perfect to me as the other two. It's amazing how with each child you can love them just as much as the one before! I love being a mom, it's the best job in the world!
