Happy Mother's Day!

I have been very fortunate to have some wonderful women in my life. My mom, grandma, sister and mother-in-law are all women who have helped make me the person I am today.
My sister has always been a huge influence in my life. She is nine years older than me and was my role model growing up. She took me on dates with her, played games with me and wrote me letters while she was away at college. She still inspires me today to be the best person I can be.

My grandmother is an amazing lady. She is 87 and she still mows her yard. She says she will mow it until she is 90 and then she will retire. When I was little, she always played games with me and sewed my Barbies clothes. I hope I can as strong and independent as her when I am her age!

The women in Eric's family are inspiring too. I am so lucky to have his mother, grandmother and sister in my life. Eric's mom and I are a lot alike. I think I'm even getting more like her the longer Eric and I are married. We both love to eat, do crafts and keep our kitchens organized. She is so sweet and I feel so lucky to have such a caring mother-in-law!

My mom had me when she was 35. My parents had tried to have me for several years and had just given up when I surprised them. My mom was a school teacher for as long as I can remember. Growing up she enrolled me in everything from ballet to twirling and was my number one fan. She never missed any of my choir concerts and her friends even came to support me. I always felt loved and encouraged by her growing up and I try to give my kids the same love and support.

Now that I am a mom, I feel very blessed to have these wonderful, Christian women in my life!

So sweet! Moms are the best! You are lucky that you and your mother in-law get along so well. I think it is so cute that Eric married someone very similar to his mama!

Thank you for being so sweet. I hope my girls are as great a mom as you are to your boys.
