Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful Mommy's out there! There's one in particular that I'd like to recognize today- my own Mommy, of course! So in counting my Sunday Blessings, here are the ways my beautiful Mommy continues to bless me...
It always stinks going to your parents when the going is a little rough, but my Mom has miraculously been able to push us toward independence while still being there when we need help. I honestly don't think there's any way we'd be able to have a wedding without her!
I've said it once and I'll say it again. My mother is solely to blame for my gypsy spirit. The times when I've wanted to go flitting off to some African country, I've only been met with understanding, support and love.
I am stubborn. I hate taking advice from anyone and would love to believe I have all the answers. Unfortunately, my Mom's foresight is uncanny and she always knows better than I. (Just don't tell her I said that.) She's the one I continually lean on for advice about my relationship and upcoming nuptials.
I've shared my testimony countless times and said that I didn't really have a foundation for my faith until high school when we started going to Youth Group. But today, I'm here to set the record straight. While I was getting into trouble with my loser friends, my Mom all but dragged me to the Church every Sunday evening. Had she not, who knows if I would not have the relationship with Jesus that I do.

Above all else, my Mommy exemplifies what it means to be a mother. She has loved us unconditionally and continues to sacrifice just about everything for us.
I love you Mommy! Happy Mother's Day!
