Today is my 9th Mother's day as a mom. WOW, when I say that it makes me feel simply BLESSED!
9 years I've been able to celebrate one of the most honorable jobs in the world....
being a MOM!
Why do I feel blessed? One way to define blessed is "enjoying the bliss of heaven". To me being a mother IS heaven on earth! God has truly blessed my life on this earth by giving me two of his daughters to watch over and raise. I hope and pray that I am doing my best for Him. I hope that I am making Him proud like my girls make me proud every day. Thank you God for giving me these two special blessings!!!
This song by Taylor Swift inspires me to, at the end of the day....make it the BEST DAY ever for my girls!

By: Taylor Swift
I'm five years old and it's getting cold
I've got my big coat on
I hear your laugh and look up smiling at you
I run and run
Past the pumpkin patch and the tractor rides
Look now the sky is gold
I hug your legs and fall asleep on the way home

I don't know why all the trees change in the fall
I know you're not scared of anything at all
Don't know if Snow White's house is near or far away
But I know I had the best day with you today

I'm thirteen now and don't know how my friends could be so mean
I come home crying and you hold me tight and grab the keys
And we drive and drive until we found a town far enough away
And we talk and window shop till I forget their names

I don't know who I'm gonna talk to now at school
But I know I'm laughing on the car ride home with you
Don't know how long it's gonna take to feel ok
But I know I had the best day with you today

i have an excellent father
His strength is makking me stronger
God smiles on my little brother
Inside and out he's better than I am

I grew up in a pretty house and i had space to run
And I had the best days with you

There is a video i found from back when i was three
You set up a paint set in the kitchen and you're talking to me
It's the age of princesses and pirate ships and the seven dwarfs
Daddy's smart and you're the prettiest lad in the whole wide world

Now i know why all the trees change in the fall
I know you were on my side even when I was wrong
And I love you for giving me your eyes
Staying back and watching me shine and I didn't know if you knew
So I'm taking this chance to say that i had the best day with you today

I will leave you with the hilarious video of a little baby preaching.....
I guess you can never start to early sharing the Lord's word!!!
