Mama's Day...

So thankful for the moms in my life that make such an influence on me and my family! We were thankful to spend Sunday evening with Honey and Papa. Honey is the absolute most wonderful, creative, giving, warm and just plain amazing Mom and Honey anyone could ever ask for!!! So glad she is mine!!!

I made brisket tacos, rice and beans and Honey brought dips, chips and dessert. I will post the brisket taco recipe soon because you MUST try it! Gotta love the crock pot! We didn't get any pics before church in our pretty clothes, so these will have to do after an afternoon in the backyard and after the kids baths.

(I mean, let's be honest, this is the real mom wardrobe anyway, right?)G and I sharing some strawberry shortcake. He is now into saying "cheeeeeese" for the camera.
On his 3rd piece of Angel cake.I could go on and on about my own mama, my mom-in-law, my sis, my sis-in-law, my grandmothers, great aunt, mommy friends and many more that I am so grateful for! I have some of the most Godly, strong, selfless, nurturing and loving women that surround me. And there is absolutely nothing greater in this world than being a mommy myself! I really noticed something last month when I was traveling. I saw mommies from all over the world caring for their babies just the same. It does not matter your skin color, culture or country, but all moms have been given the same gift. I watched women in airports and airplanes and busy streets and shopping malls all care for their babies just the same. I also noticed the little children and the eyes they had for their mother. Nothing like it! There is absolutely nothing like being a mother. It has stuck in my head ever since my trip about my job as a mom and what I am here to do, right now on this day. I am to pour into these children, meet their needs and love them to pieces! I am so glad God picked me for Anna Lou and Graham.
