I know this is probably the easiest mother’s day I will get for a long time, so I have taken this weekend to rest and enjoy some pretty Alaska days with my husband (although we definitely got snow yesterday--- and the way I cope with that? Telling myself ‘It’s not really May yet, just early spring’ ;) ).
As I look over pictures of all my new mommy friends and think of all our moms have done/put up with for us, I can’t help but fully admire and appreciate them. The laundry, the careless children, the crying, the fighting, the wisdom you try to bestow on us (but we could care less at the time), the driving lessons, the many college moves, etc, etc. I remember them all. And though I never really thanked my mom for each specific one, I am more than grateful knowing that each one of those tasks have helped me enter into the season of life I am in now. I also have more appreciation as all of it floods back to me as I carry the one I will parent soon too. So thanks mom! You are a wonderful friend and mom to me—I am so glad I can say both about my mommy!
And thank you Mama Thornbury for raising such a gift of God to be my hubbie! I cannot imagine life without him: he is mature, smart, practical, loving, caring, and fun-loving and a servant leader to me. I know you contributed to a lot of those beautiful attributes in the man he has become so I am truly grateful for your mothering, accepting and loving character towards Andrew and Matthew both :) Thanks for being a mommy to me as well!
These are my proverbs 31 Mamas:
Thanks for being this kind of mama, Mamas! I love you dearly!!
And have a VERY happy mother’s day!
