Happy Mother’s Day!

I wish all you Mommas out there a very Happy Mother’s Day – whether you’re mom to humans, fur-babies, or just FEEL like a mom! I’ve had a nice day so far. I slept in, for starters. Bad bad bad…..cuz we missed church…..but good good good because I haven’t slept in in FOREVER! It felt so nice, but I still can’t seem to wake up. It’s been HOURS, too.

Got me some take-out from PF Changs. YUM! And a QT soda (special treat). Now we are all layin’ low. The boys are napping and girls are playing. Raegan (6) is playing Pet Shops while I mess around on the computer and watch House reruns on tv. I HEART HOUSE! I don’t have much energy, but I do need to start a custom order ring for a neighbor friend. Shouldn’t take me SUPER long since I know what I’m doin’!

But anyway – back to Mother’s Day. Today is a bitter-sweet day for me. Tis super sweet because I have two great kiddos. I love being a mom to Raegan and Canon. They are awesome kids! I think today is a great day to not only be “honored” as a mom, but for us moms to honor our kids….. They made us moms! =)

It’s bitter because I sure miss my own Momma. It’ll be 14 years next month that she passed away. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about her in some way or another, but today….I’ll think of her all day. Mainly the good stuff because I don’t wanna get too down about it, but a touch of sadness, of course, always creeps in. I just keep remembering – Heaven is just that much more appealing now that she’s there!! =) But I Miss You Momma…..I Always Miss You.

On a happier note, I have a WONDERFUL, AMAZING, INCREDIBLE mother in-love (aka in-law) who treats me as one of her own and has since day one, almost. She’s such a special lady and makes me feel loved and special, too. She raised two amazing boys (her younger son is quite the stud in my book – ha ha) and reflects God’s Love in many, many ways. She’s so neat! I also have a CREATIVE, ENDEARING, LOVING “step-mother” that takes wonderful care of my dad, as well as us kids. She is newer in our lives, but it feels like I’ve loved her forever. She is a remarkable woman who strives to be the best she can be – to herself and to others. These women are my Moms and I wouldn’t trade them for any others!

So I consider myself VERY blessed to have had THREE amazing moms.
