Mom's Day

At the end of every day, I am physically and emotionally drained by being a mom. But these beautiful faces keep me waking up each morning. Some of the reasons I love being a mom are:
1. Hugs. They are the BEST.
2. I can heal any "owie" with a kiss and an assurance it will be ok.
3. The spark in my baby girls eyes when she sees me walk into a room. I'm her best friend.
4. Watching my heart walk around in mini-body versions of my husband.
5. The daily lessons of patience, kindness and humility
6. I get to watch cute TV shows and movies
7. I get to snuggle anytime I want
8. I can buy Cheez-its
9.I can sing lullabies to my children and watch them drift off to dream land
10.It makes me feel complete.

I am so thankful for my own mother and for all the love she gave to us growing up. She has always been an example of a righteous mother. I love her and try to emulate her whenever possible.
