Mother's Day

It is Mother's Day. I have a love/hate relationship on this day every year. I always feel so inadequate when I hear all the tributes and beautiful words spoken about mothers. I almost feel like a farce. I love this day though because it allows me to really focus on my beautiful family and nothing is more wonderful.
Carson - Is a responsible and conscientious older brother. He wants to do what is right. I am proud of the choices he makes.
Drake - Finds joy in the smallest of things. If you need a smile; talk with Drake for about two seconds. He is delightful.
Brooks - Is one SMART cookie. He really pushes me to be a better mom. I really enjoy our one-on-one moments.
Bowen - Is the glue of the family. Everyone will do anything for him and when it doesn't seem like there is common ground to be found, he provides that. He loves to play and he loves to learn.
Dave - Continues to lead our home with love while accomplishing miraculous amounts of works, church service, school, and fatherhood.
