Today was my first official Mother's Day! I got to sleep in, have breakfast made and Teag even made a card for me with a trace of his little hand on it. He is brilliant I tell ya! We went to church and found out that we are now going to be in a new stake starting next week and then left early for a Mother's Day BBQ over at Jeremy's brother Shane's house. We partied with the Green's for a bit and then headed over to dinner with my mom and Grandma. We tried to bolt over to the Humpherys' dinner after that, but didn't get there in time before they were done. We came home to clean a bit and am sitting down after Teag went to bed so that we can watch a movie.
I thought it would be weird to say I was a mom, but now that I am, it's not so weird because you FEEL like a mom. ha ha
I will add on here that after having a kid, I can see in a new perspective how important families are and how my little boy DESERVES to have a mommy and a daddy that love him and each other and deserves to have a good home. I am so grateful for the gospel. It makes my role in this life so purposeful and meaningful and so great of a responsibility with lots of room to grow and improve upon. I know that I've only been doing this for a few short months, but my life has changed forever. I know that this was the ultimate reason for every bit of "life" I've been through... and am looking forward to the new stages it brings. I hope I never take any of those stages for granted and enjoy every second of it.
Thank you to all the Mom's out there that give unconditional love and work their butts off for the bigger picture that they believe in. Happy Mother's Day!
