A Slice of Heaven

Being a mother is a small slice of what Heaven must be like. I absolutely love this picture my sister Lauri took of my family. Here I am in the middle of all my boys - right where I always want to be. What a wonderful gift and blessing they are to me. These boys/men inspire and challenge me. They give me so much happiness. Being their mother/wife has brought more joy and fulfillment to my life than I deserve. I'm soooo grateful to my husband for our sons and for the wonderful father he is. Just thinking about my sons makes my heart swell with gratitude for them and the incredible men/boys that they are. They've taught me so much over the years and I'm a better person thanks to them. I know that Mother's Day is supposed to be a day to celebrate mothers, but this year I'd like to celebrate being a mother - the greatest blessing in my life.

On another note, below is a poem written by my mother - the best mother in the world! My mom is an inspiration and I'm so grateful for her. Words of wisdom written by a very wise woman. I wish I had learned this lesson earlier, but am glad that I understand it now. I'll cherish and savor each day with my family.

Happy Mother's Day Mom! Thank You so very much for all that you've taught me. I'm so grateful for you and all that you do.

I look forward to seeing you tomorrow and having our boys play at grandmas. I just love having young boys together!
Happy Mothers day!

What a sweet poem, thank you for sharing! So very true I try to remind myself of that each day! You are a great mom Holly and another reason why your boys are so great is because of you. There is something so special between a mom and a son. I am glad I know that too. I hope you had a great mother's day. Love, Amy.
