HAPPY MOTHERS DAY

Happy Mother's Day to:My MotherMy mother-in-lawMy stepmother
And my grandma.
Thank you all so much for being wonderful examples of a mother to me. Each one of you brings something special into my life in your own unique ways. Thanks to my mom for raising me in a christian home, and for being an amazing example of a Godly wife and mother, and for showing me how to unconditionally love my own children. Thank you to my step-mother for loving us just as you would your own. Thank you for teaching us all the "manners" that we would never have otherwise learned! I know I have learned my love for all things "crafty" from you. Thank you to Ilene for loving and raising my husband and for making him into the such a tender and loving husband. For all the things you do for me and my family, and all the love and support you give us, I am eternally grateful! Thank you to Grandma Dot for being such a bright spot in my childhood and for making every time we spent together full of fun and laughter. Thanks for showing me that every day counts, and each one is a treasure. You are a survivor! Thank you for teaching me to endure.
This picture is a treasure to me. These hands are my mom, my grandma and my mother-in-law together. It so perfectly shows the unity between our families, and I cherish that my girls have so many wonderful grandmothers all helping us to "raise them up in the way they should go".

Heather, this post was such a blessing to me. I don't have all those faces in my life but I do have my Mom's unwaivering love and support. She and I have talked a lot about you this week and how we loved, love and miss you being here. I am so happy that God has worked how only He can to bring us back together again. Happy Mother's Day.
