Why I love you mom.

This is for the four special moms in my life. There are many more that I love and have made an impact on my life but these ladies deserve a BIG thank you.

Meagan, You are such a great mom... and sister. You work so hard and are always on your feet (in heels no less) I wish I could get as much done in one week as you do in one day. Davin loves you so much. Thank you for helping me be a better mommy to my kids and letting me rant and rave when I get frustrated. I am so thankful that you and I have been able to go through this side by side. I love you c-ster!

Tammy, I can't say enough to express how blessed I have been to have your friendship. It isn't always easy being a wife to a cop or a pregnant mother of a toddler/ preschooler, you are the only person who knows exactly how I feel. Thank you for letting me text you at 2 in the morning to vent or helping me to see the light at the end of the tunnel or for fueling the fire when I am right! lol... You are such a great friend, I couldn't ask for better. I will always admire your strength and determination. I promise I will be by your bed to keep you company and make you laugh when Tayler is born. Love you girl!

Billie, Thank you so much for loving me like a daughter. You have come to my rescue countless times when I am dead tired and need some rest. You always drop everything to be a last minute babysitter just so Matt and I can have a night out. Thank you for coming to keep me company when I am lonely. These last three years we have shared many laughs, tears and yes even a little gossip. I couldn't ask for a better mother in law. I love you!

Last and most of all...

Mom, I could say thank you a million times and it wouldn't be enough. You make me the woman I am today. You never realize how much your mother has done for you until you become one. Thank you for holding me even when I cried relentlessly through the night. Thank you for taking my hand and catching me when I fall. Thank you for waking up several time through the night to put cream on me when I had chickenpox. Thank you for holding my hair when I got sick. Thank you for telling me 'no'. Thank you for making me stick with things when I wanted to give up. Thank you for the countless hours you spent at football games, competitions, fund raisers and sitting outside of the dance room when practice ran over. Thank you for taking us to movies, bowling alleys, amusement parks and awana camping trips. Thank you for making every homecoming and prom so special and sticking up for us when dad couldn't understand why we didn't just wear the same dress as last year. Thank you for going to the gym with me at 5 in the morning before practice everyday. Thank you for walking the mall with us every fall for back to school shopping even though that was the last place you wanted to be. Thank you for always trying to find fun new yummy stuff to put on the table for dinner. Thank you for making my wedding so special even though I changed my mind a lot and we went a little over budget. Thank you for coming home early everyday only to drive half way back to the office just to get me to work and then coming back at midnight to pick me up. Thank you for taking us to church even when we put up a fight. Thank you for staying up all night waiting for me to get home from a date. Thank you for teaching me what it means to be a wife, a mom and most of all a woman of God. I can only hope to be as great of a mom to Brooke and Maddux as you have been for me. I love you!

Happy Mother's Day Everybody!

Happy Mother's Day to you too! Thank you for thinking of me as one of your 4 special moms :) I am so blessed to have you as my friend! It has been a long time since I have had a "best friend" and I am so thankful you are mine, and I hope it stays that way forever! I don't even remember how we got close again, but I am so thankful that we did! I love you and I love being there for you and you being there for me! Happy Mother's Day!!
