Mother's Day

Featuring.... MOMS!

Last Sunday was Mother's Day.  It was a terrific day.  My dear husband Ryan surprised me and cleaned the house!  And we had an amazing dinner and the girls we so sweet and good.  As I have been a mom now for almost 4 years, each year that goes by makes me more and more grateful for my own mom and all that she does for me.  Thank you Mom!  I love you!

I found this poem that would like to share on this special day. 

 Being a mom is such a wonderful, hard, extraordinary calling we have in life.  So here is to all the Mothers out there.  Bless you for your sacrifice and hard work and unconditional love!

I Love You Enough

I Loved You Enough....
to ask where you were going,
with whom, and what time you would be home.

I Loved You Enough....
to insist that you save
your money and buy a bike for yourself
even though we could afford to buy one for you.

I Loved You Enough....
to be silent and let
you discover that your
new best friend was a creep.

I Loved You Enough....
to make you take a Milky Way
back to the drugstore (with a bite out of it)
and tell the clerk,
"I stole this yesterday and want to pay for it."

I Loved You Enough....
to stand over you for two hours
while you cleaned your room,
a job that would have taken 15 minutes.

I Loved You Enough....
to let you see anger, disappointment
and tears in my eyes.
Children must learn that their
parents aren't perfect.

I Loved You Enough....
to let you assume the
responsibility for your actions
even when the penalties
were so harsh they almost
broke my heart.

But most of all,
I Loved You Enough....
to say NO
when I knew you
would hate me for it.
Those were the most
difficult battles of all.
I'm glad I won them,
because in the end,
you won, too.
