I just wanted to write a quick post saying Happy Mother’s Day to all the great moms and moms-to-be that read this! I never realized how much this day meant until I became a mother myself. We drove by a cemetery today and it made me really think about the people who no longer have their mothers on this earth to celebrate with. I pray for each of you and hope that God brings you peace and happiness today. Wanted to write a quick tribute to some of the great moms in my life:

I have been blessed with a beautiful, caring, kind, loving, Christian mother who has taught me so much about so many things.

Two women with arms around each other, wearing red and smiling.

Then I was blessed again when I married my husband. I have the best mother-in-law a girl could ask for!

I also have a wonderful grandma, and my hubby’s kind grandmother.

I have fond memories of yet another terrific grandmother.

I have an awesome older sister, who has also become an exceptional mom (24 hours and 35 minutes before I became a mom!)

I have a caring, supportive husband who truly understands and appreciates (and tells me so everyday) what I do as a stay at home mom. He got me gorgeous flowers in addition to a camera! He definitely went above and beyond!

I have my daughter’s beautiful face to look at every day, and with each smile and every giggle, all the sacrifices I make for her seem like nothing at all.

How do you celebrate Mother’s Day? Do you cook a huge spread or take the day off from cooking?

I’ll have a recipe for you next time, I promise!
