Mother's Day was our first full day at home as a family. Baby Jase & Daddy got me the sweetest card, and of course I cried as they read it aloud to me. (Post-pregnancy hormones are WAY more serious than pregnancy hormones!) So sweet! It even had his
My favorite part of Mother's Day was Jonathan telling me how natural I am as a mom and how I act like Jase has always been with us. He has been super encouraging and said that he knew I'd be a great mom, but that I'm exceeding his expectations already. He said it's probably because my mom is so great and I've always had such a good example. And man, did he hit the nail on the head.
My mom is the ROCK of our family, and particularly in my world. Growing up I remember many of my friends being "best friends" with their mom. Well, it was NOT like that for me. I was jealous at the time & wished we got along like that. She was super overprotective and disciplined me when I did wrong. Everyone told me we'd be "friends" when I was older, and I had no idea how true that was. Looking back, I am SO THANKFUL she wasn't my "friend"...and didn't care about that. She took her job as my mom very seriously, and more than anything always made me feel SOOO loved and so very special. There was not a day that went by that I didn't feel like I was the most loved and special kid on the whole planet.
This Mother's Day, I am so thankful for my incredible Mama & for the Lord blessing me with the gift of being a mother. I am so excited about this journey of motherhood....
