Being a mother is an honor and a privilege that I hope I’ll never take lightly. It is the hardest job I’ve ever had or ever will have, full of joy and sacrifice. Raising happy, responsible, caring children is the best gift I can give the world, and I will always do my best to hold up my end of the bargain. My Merry Messy Life: Happy Mother's Day! I never fully appreciated my mother until I became one, and now I realize just how lucky I am to have such an amazing woman to look up to. She inspires me to be a better mother and person. I learn from her advice, her actions of love, sacrifice, and kindness. Words cannot express how much I love her and still very much need her in my life. I need her just as much now as an adult as I did as a child. I am so happy that we were able to move back home to be close to my parents again, as their support and love has been such a gift! Happy Mother’s Day also to my mother-in-law, who raised four incredible caring, kind children – especially the one I’m married to (smile). He has wonderful childhood memories and is thankful for your sacrifice and love – it has made him a confident, kind, happy man who is one incredible father and husband. And now you have 10 grandchildren to enjoy from all the work sowed raising your own children. What a success story! Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful mothers out there!
