Last year was my first Mother's Day as a MOM. Obviously, having a child makes this holiday take on a new meaning - but I was surprised that it was not in the way that I thought it would! Yes, it's fun that I now get flowers and a card myself. But more importantly, becoming a mother made me SO MUCH more aware and appreciative of the love and sacrifice that I received as a child and continue to receive. I feel so blessed to have been raised by such an amazing mom that loved me, cared for me, and encouraged me in my faith - and still does! I was also blessed to have two grandmothers nearby growing up - both are so unique and so special to me! When I married Scott, I got a whole new mom and grandmother to love. I am so thankful to them not only for the way they have accepted me into their family, but for raising Scott up to be the amazing man that he is! Moms are truly amazing! Becoming one myself has been the greatest joy I have experienced on earth so far. Here are some of my favorite pics of all my "moms" - HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
