I hope everyone had a beautiful Mother’s Day! We spent the weekend in Houston for Aiden’s baseball tournament. It didn’t matter to me what we did on Mother’s day as long as I had my boys and my husband. This was the first Mother’s day that I didn’t spend with my own mom, which was very weird. Making sure that I was with all my children meant so much more to me because of that. I don’t know how I will feel years down the line when my children have their own families and lives that don’t necessarily include me. They are growing up so quickly and I wonder how our lives will change as they each grow up. The fact that Aiden is already 14 makes me eager to cherish our moments together as a family more than ever. We had such a great time together that I neglected to capture a photo with all of us together. I had every intention of us getting a mother-son photo this year. This is only part of my tribe, Aiden was warming up on the field for his game.
Mother’s day is not just a day to tell mom “Happy Mother’s Day”. It’s a day to reflect on all the women who have had a part in shaping who you are. I am lucky enough to have an amazing mom who has been there for me always. When I am with her I feel like I am ten again. She is caring, loving and has always put family first. I am proud to call her mom and pray that I am half the mom to my boys as she is to my brother and I.
