The cutest things I ever made

I always have some deep reflection when a day like Mother's Day comes around. 
I feel as if motherhood is my calling.  I enjoy my children so much.  I look at them and so often think, I can't believe you are my child!  My children have completed my life.  They make me smile, laugh and sometimes cry.  I can see why my mom had so many kids.  They are a true joy.
So here's to motherhood.
Thanks to my sweet girls for allowing me to celebrate a Mother's Day!

 I am so truly blessed with such a great mother.  I thank the Lord above that He chose my mom for me.  She is so sweet and loving and has taught me countless things in my lifetime.  We have become great friends and share interests like sewing and cooking.  She is a great example of what a mom should be.  My mom gave birth to and raised 10 great kids.  I am so proud to call all of my brothers and sisters family.  They are great people and my sisters have been great examples of what a mother should be also.

Happy Mother's Day mom!!

Happy Mother's Day to my beautiful sisters!

Happy Mother's Day to you too!
