Happy Mother's Day

I never thought I would be this excited to finally celebrate Mother's Day. As the day gets closer and closer, different feelings are evoked. Feelings of honor, pride, and belonging come from being a mom, myself. Michael has always honored me on this day since I am a mother to our first baby, Cotton! However, it's totally different this time around.

Last year I was 37 weeks pregnant on Mother's Day and still celebrated, but it's official this year, I'M A REAL MOM! Other feelings of gratitude, thankfulness, and understanding fill me as I think of my mom and all that she has done for my brother, sister, and me. Thank you so much, Mom, for every single thing...because now I know! You are wonderful.

(Here's my mom, pregnant with my brother, Jacob)
Mother's Day wouldn't be complete without honoring those wonderful women in mine and Michael's's to you...Mom, Mrs. Vickie, Mamaw, Bama, Ma-Ma, and Grandmother!

Happy Mother's Day Mrs. Vickie!
To the Grandmothers...

My Bama...
My Mamaw....who we all miss so much. She was the perfect grandmother to us all.
Michael's Grandmother...Mrs. Evelyn.
Michael's Ma-Ma...Mrs. Elsie.

Proverbs 31:10-31

10 A wife of noble character who can find?

She is worth far more than rubies.

11 Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.

12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.

13 She selects wool and flax
and works with eager hands.

14 She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from afar.

15 She gets up while it is still dark;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her servant girls.

16 She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.

17 She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks.

18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night.

19 In her hand she holds the distaff
and grasps the spindle with her fingers.

20 She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy.

21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
for all of them are clothed in scarlet.

22 She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.

23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.

24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
and supplies the merchants with sashes.

25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.

26 She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.

27 She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.

28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:

29 "Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all."

30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.

31 Give her the reward she has earned,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
