I was so blessed to spend mother's day with my sweet boy and my amazing husband. They got me some local coffee from our favorite place, and a locally made sea monster t-shirt I had been eyeing. Landon watched Finn so I could take a long nap after church, which was ah-mazing! Tucking Finn into bed last night, I sat and read to him Love You Forever...read that and try not to cry. :)
Being a mama has changed me dramatically in the past two years. I have learned so much...about myself, and about my son. I have been challenged almost daily, and it seems that I am not always the "perfect" mom I envisioned I would aim to be when I was pregnant. There are days when I lose my patience, and days where I have to say I'm sorry to Finn, and to Landon. I don't have it all figured out, but you know what...no one does! :) But the blessings I have received from being a mama far outweigh any negatives. This little one was given to me so that I might love him dearly, and teach him how to love others. It is an honor to be a mama, and I am so thankful for this opportunity.
I am also blessed to have two dear mothers in my life, and to know many other moms who have been amazing examples to me. Here's to all the moms and moms-to-be out there.
