This is a long post and I doubt many of you make it to the end so I just want to start off by saying Happy Mother's day to all you moms out there. Being a mom is the most wonderful thing in the world - but it can also be one of the hardest jobs ever! You are all amazing! And on my heart all day have been all of you who hurt on this day because you are not a mom yet or you are missing your mom who is no longer with you. You are not alone. So many are praying for you and you have not been forgotten.
Both sets of grandparents came this weekend for Mother's day and baby dedication. My dad couldn't come because he had to be home to preach at his own church and we really missed him. We are so fortunate to have grandparents that are so crazy about their grandkids!
(and my dad sent me the sweetest text this morning. I may be a mom now - but I'm still a daddy's girl!)
Harper REFUSED to take a picture with her sister but we kind of tricked her! ha!
We were blessed with wonderful weather this weekend. It was warm and sunny and we spent some time outdoors. Harper would play outside all day long if I would let her. I have a feeling we will spend a lot of time outside this summer. We grilled out steaks Saturday night and enjoyed a really nice meal.
I just can't tell you how precious this little baby is!
Our sermon today was on discipline and raising up children God's way and I was so thankful because honestly lately I've just felt like a failure of a mother. I just feel so overwhelmed with the task of forming little lives into the amazing people I know they can be.
This was up on the screens as we were called on stage

I'm very thankful for my mom - I love her so much and I'm so glad she could be with us. And I'm thankful for my sweet mother-in-law. I'm thankful they love my girls as much as I do. They have been such a huge help to me in the last two years.
Happy Mother's Day to you all!
