Clumsy Crafter: Mother's Day

Mother's Day

Tomorrow is Mother's Day but we celebrated it tonight so that Damion can go see Iron Man 2 tomorrow afternoon.

Earlier today I was digging through some old boxes and found some high school memories. Inside the box was a survey I took my senior year that asked what my 5 and 10 year goals were. It was amazing to see that my life's goals then have all been met or achieved with the exception of one, which is college graduation. Darn you College Algebra! One question asked, "What do you want to be in 10 years" and I answered, "be  a mother."  Another question asked how many children I would have and I answered that I would have at least 3. Here it is 11 years later and I am a mother of three kids. I always knew that I wanted to be a mom and I'm so thankful that I was blessed enough to become one.

I know that this weekend we're supposed to be celebrating myself and the women in my life but I'm choosing tonight to celebrate my husband. Odd, I know.

However the truth is that I wouldn't be a mother without him. I might have had a baby some other way but he is what makes me a mother. He is the one that gives up things so that I can stay home and raise our kids. He is the one that encourrages me when I'm having a bad day with the kids. We share many many smiles across our children's heads when we them behaving in a way that makes us proud. Together we laugh at them and dance with them. I couldn't do it by myself and I wouldn't wany to.  It may be Mother's day but I only get to celebrate with chocolate cake and Starbucks because he loves me and desires to make me happy.

Thanks sweetie for helping me be the best mom I can be.

By the way, he is also the one that understands my terrible fear of snakes and offered to plant the rest of my flowers for me today after I saw a snake in the flower bed. Now that is love.
