Motherhood...

Today is Mother's Day. It's one of my favorite days of the year...and not for the reasons you'd probably think. Yes, I love getting to sleep in and I love having breakfast made for me (and this year it was a really good breakfast). I love the ridiculous amount of gifts that my husband insists on buying for me and I love the all around pampering. And I love at the end of the night, starting to plan out in my mind how I can make Father's Day, which is just around the corner, equally as special as Albert makes Mother's Day for me. But these aren't the reasons that Mother's Day is one of my most favorite days of the year. The thing I treasure most about this day is celebrating the relationships that are so special in my life. The women who have impacted, influenced and helped shape my life, and who have left a permanent imprint on my character, personality and heart. My mother, my sisters, my fellow-mommy friends, and my amazing friends, Anna and Lisa who I chose as Mia's godmothers because I couldn't imagine anyone in the world more perfect. All of these women are so precious to me and it's hard to picture life without anyone of them. I am so thankful that God has placed every single one of them in my life.
And as a mom, I'm equally thankful that God has sent me the ten beautiful children that call me Mommy..it's an incredible honor that God picked me to take care of them in this life. Celebrating these remarkable things, the relationships that spring from motherhood, are what I love.
I started off my Mother's Day this morning by talking to my Mom. What better way to begin the morning? And then, we called my sister on three way and I got to talk to her too! Then my daughters piled in my bed and my son's brought me coffee, and when I came downstairs Albert and Drew had breakfast ready. Bacon, eggs, grits and doughnuts...the best breakfast in the world!!!!
The afternoon was perfect! We went shopping with the kids, I took a nap, and we grilled burgers and hot dogs. I was able to talk to a good number of the women who make my life so special...AND I have pictures to share, but its late so I'll have to post them tomorrow.
I hope that all of you had a wonderful, blessed Mother's Day and were able to celebrate the special relationship you share with at least one woman out there...weather its your mother, your sister, an aunt, your daughter....and that if you are a mom, and even if you aren't, chances are that you've touched the life of a child at some point along the way, that you are able to celebrate your relationship with your children, or the children you have impacted and made a difference for.
Happy Mother's Day everyone!

One black spot in my day...not all my kids were in church. Breaks my heart!
Lifting up prayers!
Romans 5:1-2 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

Praying in Seattle!
Romans 5:4-6 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Know that I care so very much and am still praying!
Psalms 31:1-3 In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness. Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me. For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.

Mothers day bring happiness for our faces...In mothers we all sibling planned a surprise for our mother. I think we all should give a surprise gift to mother.
We should care of our mothers because mother is a gift from God for child's.
