A Tribute to Mom

This will be a short post as I'm living on about 4-5 hours of sleep right now and my brain isn't working right. No reason really. I just don't go to bed early enough and then have to get up at 4:40am. I'm SO ready for summer to get here! Oh! It could be that my 4 yr old keeps crawling into bed with us at 3:30 every morning. Let's just say our bed isn't big enough for all three of us.

Here is Carrie Underwood with Momma's Song. It's so fitting for the Mother's Day weekend, don't you think?

Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there!
Thank you for the sacrifices you make every day for your children. I hope you have a great weekend.

Anyway, I've been thinking about my mom a lot lately. She's applying for a job in my hometown, and I really hope she gets it. I would love to have her close by again. So would my kids.

My mom has always been one of my best friends. Even through the teen years. Yeah, I know that's weird, but I feel really lucky that we  never hated each other. I stayed up waiting for her to come home on the night I first kissed my hubby (I was 18 and I got home before she did on a Sat. night!).

She's always been my example of faith and strength. Her life has not been easy, and yet she keeps moving through it with a smile on her face. Thanks Mom, for being strong for all of us. For believing in us and loving us in spite of the dumb things we did/do growing up.
See that big smile?
My mom looks good at least. :) I've had boy hair lots over the years. (Still missing one more sister in this picture.)

Love you Mom!
