Mother's Day

A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie. ~Tenneva Jordan
We had a wonderful day going to church this morning. I tried to get us to coordinate in green and pink (shout out Tri Chis)(ha ha!) Scott was sweet to wear pink for me! We had a wonderful service with baby dedications and my sweet preschool choir sang and did a great job! I am so thankful for my family. I know that pain that many of you feel on this day and my heart hurts for you. As happy as I am today - I will never forget the sadness I once had.

I can hardly believe that last year we were dedicating Harper at church and she was just a little baby and now she is a big girl who runs all through my house. I can't even imagine what our 2011 picture might look like! :-)
Happy Mother's day to two wonderful women who we love dearly. Our moms and Harper's grandmothers. We are blessed to have both of you in our lives.

Harper - I dreamed since I was a little girl of one day being a mother and wondered what my children would be like. All the years that we waited and prayed for you, I wondered if I would ever get the chance to rock a baby or sing to them or take them to play dates. I will never forget how excited I was the 9 months you were in my belly. Every day I prayed for you and thought about you and wondered what this little life would be like. I never imagined in my wildest dreams that I would have a little girl as beautiful and precious as you are. I love your sweet smile and your precious personality. I love that you aren't shy and that you light up when you see people. I love that you smile and laugh more than you throw fits (which that's a lot!). I love every day watching you grow and discover new things. I feel like I finally found my purpose in life - to be your mother and to guide you and shape you into the woman you will become. I pray every day that God will use you in AMAZING ways. I want so much for you. But most of all I want you to know that you have a mother who loves you more than life itself. I would do anything for you. I never knew how much I could love someone until you came into my life. I will never, ever, ever get over the blessing it is to be your mother and I don't take a minute of it for granted.
Love, Momma
