My Mom

            I am so very lucky to know so many incredible moms.  Patient ones, prayful ones, energetic ones, creative ones...all amazing mothers to their children.  And each and every one of them influence me and help me be a better mom to M, J, & I.
            But there is one that I have known longer than all the others.  One that taught me confidence, self-worth, how to pick myself up off the ground when I'd been "knocked-down", and one that loved me unconditionally.  That's my mom.
           We talk daily.  But I don't often tell her how much I love her.  She knows it.  She can hear it in my daily calls and my never-ending quest for her advice.  And I hope she knows how blessed I feel to have been given a mom like her.

Mom, thank you for all the experiences you have given me in my life.  Thank you for giving me tough love when I needed it most.  Thank you for shaping me into who I am today.
Happy Mother's Day.

Becca,

That was beautiful. I loved seeing all the older pictures from when you were little. Does Bubba Boy look like you or what? Well, they all do, but your baby pictures really looked like Bubba. Cute.
I hope your mom reads your blog.
Just wonderful!
Happy Mother's Day to you!

Oh my goodness, Becca, this is so beautiful! You and your mom look so much alike . . . both just beautiful. And wow, Morganne looks so much like you when you were little.

Side note: "How He Loves" is one of our favorite songs. When my girls heard it, even Kam started swaying :)

Happy Mother's Day!!

Isn't it so very true when we think that our mommas make us the women that we are? I don't know what I'd do without mine!

By the way - I hope you had a happy Mother's Day, Becca!
