I have simply the best mother in the world. Easily. I also had two awesome grandmothers. Over the course of my life my sister has become a mom, I've gained an awesome mother-in-law and two wonderful grandma's from my husband's side. There are also wonderful aunts, friends' moms and leaders in my life that have taught me excellent motherly lessons. Here are a few I'd like to share.
My best friend through junior high has an awesome mom. Their family, because of their mom, had awesome celebrations for things that weren't necessarily big holidays. They got a December 1st present to start the Christmas season, waffles on Sunday mornings, and a Christmas tree dance. This is something I definitely want to embrace with my own kids, in years, when we have them.
So here's to you mothers, especially mine, I hope you have a wonderful day and are celebrated appropriately. Love you!
