to the mama's.

Mother's day has always been one of my favorites. What mama doesn't deserve a day dedicated to her? It's an incredible job. The toughest. One that will frustrate you, bring you to tears and not a moment later make you forget anything ever happened. Nothing can top the love that our children show to us. Their innocence, their energy and laughter is so beautiful, so sweet. I can't tell you how many times I have wanted to cry right along with Rae, especially on those long days when you're counting down the hours until bedtime..but then 7:30 rolls around, I'm rocking her to sleep and she lays her head on my shoulder, her tiny hands squeeze my arm and she looks up at me touches my face and gives me no less than five kisses. Those moments will remain engraved on my heart. They make me want to crawl right in bed with her. The pureness, the belly laughs and those bedtime kisses. It doesn't get any better than that. I always knew I wanted to have children and I will always be grateful to be a mom. So grateful to be Raelyn's mama. That little girl will never know how much life she has given me. How much she makes me want to be a better person, to be braver, grow deeper in my faith, to forgive and to love a little harder. She is the most incredible little girl, made up of all the best parts of Stefan and I. Being a mother has shown me the realness in life. The intense love to the hardest cries, the tears from all the giggles and everything in between. It's everything I ever imagined plus more. To those mama's who've been there and done that and now have grand babies, hats off to you. You are a badass, a superwoman, selfless and loving. Happy Mama's day to you! I hope you enjoy your day!
