Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day all you Mommies! I love Mother's Day and I have since I was a little girl. Mom's deserve at least one day a year to have recognition and some extra LOVE. I celebrate my mother, my grandmother, my mother-in -law, and all other special mothers in my life. Thank you. Thank all of you so much for everything you have done to contribute to the mother I am today, and for the person I have become.

I recorded a song for my mothers entitled "She". (written by Cherie Call) The lyrics speak to me. The world has such a different perspective on what women should be. As mothers, our sacrifice can be great at times and this song recognizes those moments that every mother experiences raising a child. It is such a special calling.

I want my mother in law to know...I love you. Thank you for raising a son worthy to take me to the temple. Thank you for teaching him to love me the way he does. You have given me an eternal family. You taught him to respect women and honor mothers. He is an amazing father and I attribute his amazing attributes to you. Thank you for being the mother of my husband and best friend.

I want my mom to know......I recognize you. I recognize each late night you rocked me as a baby. I recognize the sacrifice of your body and time for years. I recognize you shed tears for me, gave council, support, and love. I recognize each time you spent with me at sporting events, sewing costumes for my plays, and then attending every show. Thank you for each and every day of my life. It wouldn't be the same without you. I love you and thank you for all that you have been for me and continue to give me everyday.

P.S. I don't know how to attach "She" so if any of you want to hear it...let me know and I'll email it to you.
