Mom's Day

I have the best Momma ever. I love her so much. I'm so thankful that God put us together as mother and daughter, even though I put her through the ringer sometimes during my growing up. Sorry for that, Mom.

Now, I get to be Mom, and she is Nana. (But still Mom, too).

My boys are my little loves that I take for granted on a daily basis.

I fail them. I yell at them. I spank them sometimes, though not as much anymore. I don't always see the lesson that is being taught in the midst of chaos. Sometimes we don't have vegetables for dinner. And sometimes I buy junk food.

But they fall, and I pick them up. They cry and I hold them tight. They tell stories, and I listen. They love so openly and big and I get to be their Mom. I am thankful for my little dudes. Thankful for their big ol' hearts, for their belly laughs, and big grins, and cheesy jokes, and the way they forgive and let go. Because sometimes I mess up.

One year ago, there were three, remember?
