Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Day is bittersweet for me. I LOVE being a Mother but I miss MY Mom. Last year our primary sang the sweetest song about Mothers. I cannot get through this song without crying. It has officially become one of my favorite songs. It totally sums up how I feel about my Mom. It is better with the music but I wanted to share the lyrics...

"Thank You For Being My Friend"
I have a friend who I can depend on; someone who really cares. I have a friend who's always around when nobody else is there. I have a Mom and so I am thankful each day at its end. I'm glad you're mine and so I will say, "Thank you for being my friend."
My Mother loves me and tries to show me things as they really are. When I am troubled answers from heaven never are very far. I have a Mom and so I am thankful each day at its end. I'm glad you're mine and so I will say, "Thank you for being my friend."



My Mom was my best friend. I only hope and pray I can be that kind of Mother to my children and siblings. I feel SO blessed to have these sweet kiddos in my life. I just wanted to thank all you fellow bloggers out there for inspiring me to be a better Mom! Happy Mother's Day!!
