Even though this post is a day late {we were too busy celebrating our moms!} I want to take a sec to thank all the moms out there who do what they do. Especially mine.

I’ve only been doing this for a little less than 3 months now, it seems a little unfair that I get the same celebration as my mom who has been doing it for over 25 years! K and I talk all the time about how as time goes by, we realize more and more what our moms did for us. Or, how what they DIDN’T do for us benefitted us in the long run.

K and I have been incredibly blessed to have the mom that we do. Through each season of life so far, she has been an example of strength, wisdom, and selflessness to us- always having patience for us, helping us find our own answers, and giving us the tools to go out into the world knowing what we are about and what we stand for. Now that I’m a mom, a million memories come swirling through my head of things my mom said and did that used to frustrate me, but now I realize how wise she was- and how hard it must have been for her to give us the tools to make our own decisions, and  let us make them.

I’m thankful for my mother in law as well- the relationship that I have with her is one I am so thankful for. She makes me feel like a daughter of her own- I’m sure that’s a rare thing and I hope that I can be a mom like that to my future daughter-in-laws someday (God willing!)

I know K is blessed by her mother-in-law as well, she has told me many times. It’s a special thing, when you enjoy all your moms!

To all you moms out there, or mom’s to be, or ladies who want to be moms someday~~ thank you for the choice you made in becoming a mom! It is an experience like no other- that requires daily sacrifice, constant intention and attention, patience, and nurturing. I don’t know the half of it yet, but I am learning daily, and each day makes me more thankful for the wonderful mom I have.

Thank you moms, we love you so much.

“A Mother is not a person to lean upon, but a person to make leaning unnecessary.”

Proverbs 22:6  “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”

Deuteronomy 6:6-9 “These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.”
