Happy Mommy's Day!!

I just finished yelling down to my girls to "Cut it out!" - fortunately, nobody yelled back, "Where are the scissors?" like we used to do with our mom! We were so smart to her, but she was smart to us back. I know today seems like a competition for who has the best mom, but I don't even need to compete - I've got her, and I'm not sharing!!!

There are so many reasons I love my mom and am thankful to her for the way she raised us and loves us. So I'm not the best cook, nor do I have a house that even resembles the word "clean", but I know how to have fun, how to laugh at myself, when enough is enough and most importantly, how to let my kids fail. My mom taught me how to love Jesus in the midst of life, and I'm eternally grateful to her for that.

Sorry, folks. My mom is the best and there's no contest here. On the back of this picture is the word "Disney" - other than my mickey sweatshirt, I would have never guessed this picture had anything to do with Disney. But my mom, I'm sure, could rattle off 100 memories from that trip, each with a lesson for us, a reminder of a wonderful childhood where she and my dad created fun from pennies and lots of love!

(Oh, and nice socks, Uncle D! haha)
