Celebrating MOMS!


I love being a mom and I have one of the best mom’s in the world. She learned from her own mom how to be loving, strong, supportive and fun. My parents have three daughters and now two grandsons. My mom and I talk a lot about raising boys and how different the two are. I have high expectations for my boys and sometimes feel a lot of pressure to raise them right. I wonder a lot what my boys will be like when they’re grown

I was recently at a barbecue with some friends when I witnessed something beautiful. As my friend’s brother arrived, he looked around, waved to a few friends, nodded his head to another and walked straight over to his mom. He gave her a hug and a kiss on the cheek, then leaned down and kissed his grandma on the forehead. I could have cried. The best part was, my boys really look up to this guy and noticed when he got there and watched him kiss his mom and grandma. I wanted to hug him and pay him, but I didn’t. My boys are in that phase right now where kisses are gross and I might as well have quills on my hands because they certainly don’t want to hold it like they did when they were younger. Being a mom is such a journey. I’m excited for the future and what it holds and who my sons will grow to be. This year I’m thankful for them and every day I have to love them. Being a mom is life’s best blessing. Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms!
