{Happy Mother's Day!}

This is my first Mother's Day without my mom and my grandma.

I'm here in Texas... they're in Missouri & Florida.

I'm going to miss eating our annual homemade ice cream with the family {it's the only time I get a different flavor other than butterfinger, which Mike loves}, watching the guys toss horseshoes {and praying the kids stay out of the way}, or throwing the Bocci Ball {here the kids are allowed to play!}. But I'll be there in spirit...

I love these women in my life! They made me who I am today, by example, and by their love.

Mothers are the place that we call home.

On them we rest our heads and close our eyes.

There's no one else who grants the same soft peace,

Happiness, contentment, sweet release,

Erasing nighttime tears with lullabies,

Restoring the bright sun that makes us bloom.

I love how my girls are so secretive about what they're doing for me. They love to create & make up wonderful things (they've made up a dance so far, cards.... and they've asked what is my favorite breakfast food... ) Homemade is defintely the way to go, in my eyes!

Nothing says LOVE like homemade!

Happy Mother's Day!!


  1. I hope you have a wonderful Mother's day!! Your girls sound like they have wonderful things planned for you.

  2. It is hard not to have your family around you. Esp on a day like mom's day. Hope your family showers you with love:) And your right, your girls are up to something. Katie started e-mailing me weeks ago for ideas. hahah:) But I must say I have no idea what they are doing for you...

  3. what a wonderful Mother days post!
    HAPPY Mother's day to you :)
