Mother's Day 2013

We were so blessed to be able to spend Mother's Day this year with both our mothers.
Tim's mom was staying with us for the weekend, and we planned to meet my mom halfway between Clearwater and Fort Myers in Sarasota to spend the day together.
We went to lunch at the Columbia.

After lunch we weren't quite ready to part ways, so we decided to do something spur of the moment and head to the circus museum.

We are so blessed with such wonderful mothers.
I know not everyone has that blessing, so it is not something I take lightly.
My mother is the picture of loyalty.
She loves with her whole self and has given me such a great example to follow when loving my own children.
She is also an exceptional grandmother to my children.
I love the joy she brings them and the joy they bring her.
My mother-in-law raised my husband to be the godly man that he is.
That is something I am forever indebted to her for.
She has taken me on as one of her own and shown me that mother-in-laws can get along with their daughter-in-laws:)
Again, my kids love to be with her, and the feelings are mutual.
God has once again shown His grace through these two women.
We are so undeserving of their love but so, so thankful at the same time.
And it wouldn't be a proper Mother's Day without mentioning my own motherhood.
I can't think of a harder or more rewarding life-task.
I love my kids with a kind of fierceness I never knew possible.
They are so very special to me, and I hope they always know they have me in their corner.
I am their biggest fan and their biggest supporter.
I am so grateful for the three kids God chose to place in my arms.
Each one is perfect for me in their own way, and I still can't believe I get the privilege of being by their side to guide and direct while they grow.
What a blessing!
