Mother's Day

I am truly blessed! I had such a great Mother's Day (and then I've been too busy to even get on the net to update my blog...)! I was in Salt Lake to watch my talented brothers perform and visit with my aunt, Shannon, who was visiting from Texas. Nate and the Granite Youth Symphony had their end of year concert last Thursday and Aaron performed in the mystery play Bone Chiller (more on that later). I am so proud of those two! Mother's Day morning started out perfect! We went to church with my family, and when the children were asked to come to the stage to sing we asked Liv if she wanted to go sing with the kids. She said "Yep!" and was off to catch up with the rest of the kids. Luckily the song was the same she had been practicing in our local ward, but she would've done well no matter. She waved her hands like the teacher and did some hand actions that she must've remembered from learning the song. So, I'm not one to cry in public, but I could feel the happy tears coming and gave in. But then I was just overwhelmed with joy and began to sob, that's just how happy I was! (and maybe it's cause I could feel my mom's presence!) It was perfect, and set a great mood for the rest of the day. What a treat!

Oh, Tami....I'm sure mother's day is a hard day for you....but know that you are a great mother yourself!!! And you are instilling in your children the values and lessons your own mom taught you and your brothers! You are continuing her legacy as a woman and mother. When your kids get old enough, I'm sure they will express their gratitude even more. Overall, I'm glad you had a good Mother's Day and that you were able to spend some time with your family ;)

It's amazing how our children can just turn us into mush at a moment's notice. They just put so much love and pride in us. Makes me love being a mommy.

Happy Mother's Day. I'm sure your mom couldn't be more proud of you for the mother that you are.
You are a special girl and so talented and loving.

You truly are a blessing to everyone around you.
