This is my day.. But your the reason my day is so special. From the moment I felt you both in my womb, I was in love. Though your mothers start at first was rocky as I tried to get a foot hold on this world, my Lord helped me along the way. I can't have the years back that I lost but I cherish each moment I have now. Sometimes you get me a little frazzled and at loose ends, but I wouldn't trade motherhood for anything. I may look around the messy room that I JUST CLEANED...but I wouldn't trade it for anything. The messy house and scattered toys just means it's lived in and I have you. If my house was always silent and no clutter...that means you wouldn't be here. The laughter and chaos that you have given into my life has made it more full then I could ever have wanted. When you go away to your nana's, I enjoy the solitude for a moment..but after awhile I start to miss you. Never lose sight of God in your lives. As I have shared my life and my journey with you both, I hope inside that you will discover the great love I have found early in your lives. To see how I found what love is. What parenting is. How I found to be patient and not explode when my laptop fell to the ground, broke. God gave me the strength to grit my teeth and say it was ok. Or Maddie, when you always manage to spill something..God has managed to help mommy grin and bear it. The journey of parenting isn't easy..especially when it's just me...but I have God helping along the way. He is your Father in Heaven. He will never leave you. He will help you grow like He has helped your mom grow. He has instilled the tenderness of motherhood inside me, the love that never ends. My cup runs over because of Him. He has shown me what a home should be like and has helped me give that..or try to give that, to you.
A place of comfort,rest,peace..an oasis from all troubles. A place where angels can be.

Mother..my dearest mother..I thank YOU for giving me that also. You have shown me what love is and what a mother should be. And also, our start was rocky...but our ending has been great. Your the one I turn to when I need a shoulder to lean on..too much at times..but your always there. You have shown me how to love and always remind me to keep my words tender. Your patience helped show me how to be more patient. Again, I can't change what I did in the past...but I can make a difference in the future. To be the daughter you deserve to have in your life. To love and support you also along the way. I love you mom..thank you for being there for me and my journey with my kids. For showing me what Christ is like.
For helping me to become more and more like my dream Proverbs 31 woman.
Thank you Father for blessing my life so abundantly and showing me what a gift you have given me.
She is a strong person,and people respect her.
She looks to the future with confidence.
She speaks with wisdom and teaches others to be loving and kind.
She oversees the care of her house.
She is never lazy.
Her children say good things about her. Her husband brags about her and says,
"There are many good women,
but you are the best.”
Grace and beauty can fool you,but a woman who respects the Lord should be praised.
Give her the reward she deserves.
Praise her in public for what she has done.
