Mother's Day

Can't everyday be Mother's Day? I say this because I am a mom to three beautiful and active kids. Some days are so busy with activities, sports, meetings, and unexpected life situations that I just want to be appreciated. Does anybody see all that I do? But really, was my purpose in having children to be appreciated? Absolutely not!

I am thankful (at least I'm trying) that I get to wake up from the sound of Joely at 6am (I'm not a morning person). Or that I get to grow in patience while helping Carter find the very thing he is looking for (which is right out in the open) and that Calla comes to me when she is hurting because girls at school can't get along. I find being a mom is a privilege. For the 4 nights a week of running around with kids' practices, games and social lives, which make me crazy, I wouldn't change a thing. I am so grateful that I get to be a mom to Calla, Carter and Joely. Happy Mother's Day to all the under-appreciated mom's out there!

You have a beautiful family! It sounds like you are enjoying every moment of being a mom. I know it sounds trite but it goes by so fast so please do keep enjoying it all! Happy Mother's Day!
