Happy Mother's Day!

I just wanted to put a big Happy Mother's day to my mom! She is the best mom I could have hoped for! I remember always being close to her even as a child. She has always been supportive, fun, and a friend. She has taught me tons of amazing things! Things that have helped me be the person that I am today, how to be a mother, a latter day saint, and a decent human being! She has always been so generous to me! (I can't count the number of times she has just bought clothes for my kids just because she saw something and new they were growing out of their old ones.) My children love her and cheer when they know that grandma is coming! My kids showered her with gifts when she came to spend a day with us this week (just for fun!) They all made them on their own and wanted to keep making her more till she left! I think they did this because they feel her generosity towards them. Not that she spoils them with huge fancy things but grandma always has something even if it is candy, books, or time to just spend with them! I love that she comes just to have fun with us, or to take care of us when a new baby comes. They love to do crafts with her and go to her house to spend time with her there! Last summer she took the older 3 for a week so I could get my act together (I had a new heavy calling, a baby, and too much time with 4 kids underfoot!) They loved the time with her and I was soooo grateful for a little time to find myself, rejuvenate my self and remember that I totally love being a mother! I love that my mom recognized that I just needed a little break, was willing to help me and she loved doing it! I think I have the best mom in the world! Thanks Mom for all that you have done for us, all you give us and all you will continue to do!!! We love you!!!!! (Oh and thanks a million for the cricket MOM!!!)

YOUR WELCOME! I just do what I do, nothing special, just a lot of love. I always feel a little bad...sad... guilty... that your kids are farther away and I'm not able to do as much for you, and them as I do the grandkids that are close by. I love you!
