I am a firm believer that moms are the least selfish people in the world. Now that I have children I have a much better understanding what my mom gave up and did for me everyday. I love you mom and thank you for everything you did, do and will do for me.
I remember one of the first holidays Jen and I spent together. I bought her an Amazon Kindle and she was mad at me because I didn’t buy a card to give her with it. It is kind of funny to think about now because we don’t give each other cards anymore. We agreed that it wasn’t something we needed to do. We know how much we love each other and don’t need a card to prove that.
I took that to heart this Mother’s Day. I bought journals for both the girls to write or color in for each Mother’s Day. I will get the journals out each mother’s day and let the write a note to their mother in it. I think it will be really cool to see each of the journals as the girls get older and more mature. I am also hoping that these journals will be something that Jen and I can look back at to remember how wonderful this time in our life is.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s out there.
