So...It's about them.

To me, Mothers' Day has become all about my kids and how blessed I feel to be their mama.

They are my most precious blessings, my greatest purpose in life, my biggest inspirations, and the source of the sweetest moments & purest joys. To me, Mothers' Day is about them. Everything is about them. Because of them, I get to be a mother. And it is truly a miraculous gift from Heavenly Father for which I am eternally grateful.

I mean seriously, look at these sweet angels. I just can't help but smile, get a bit teary, and kiss the heck out of those chubby cheeks! I can't get enough of these girls.

I also can't help but be overwhelmed with gratitude for the incredible examples I have, in both my mother & my mother-inlaw. Thank you for teaching me, in word and deed, how to become a mother "who knows." I look to you everyday. Your influence in my life, and as result, in the lives of my daughters, is tremendous. In fact, it's eternal.

And to my sisters, friends, and neighbors who also are remarkable examples of womanhood and motherhood - thank you for your inspiration, love, strength, and influence.

Happy Mothers' Day

This is such a sweet post, Meg. I can't believe it's been so long since we've seen you guys. We have pics of your girls in Jane's room she she will remember and love her cousins, but we can't wait to see you again.

If you do come this summer, can you wait until after Jesse comes home so you can meet him? :)

Love those girls, too. I think they got their kissable cheeks from their Mom. FYI.
