Around this time last year I was wandering around Walmart for hours, literally hours, we were getting the truck tires fixed before heading to Moab. Carson was trying to get things hurried along and I was waiting inside with my smoothie. I went up and down the isles trying to find the perfect present for my Mom. I wanted to get something really special for her because I knew it would probably be the last Mother's Day she would have with us. Even then as I searched for the perfect gift I knew that there was nothing I could buy her with money that would tell her that I love her, she already knew. I ended up buying some flowers for her to plant in her garden, flowers made her happy. Then we headed to Moab to spend some time with her, something she enjoyed more than any gifts or flowers.
This year Carson asked me what I want for Mother's Day. Without any hesitation I told him I want my Mom back. I miss her everyday. I am so glad I was blessed to have such an amazing mother in my life. I will try my whole life to be as good a Mom to my baby girl as she was to me.
Now as a Mom I am certain that it is the most thankless job in the world. Sometimes I feel like my husband thinks that his clothes magically make it back to his drawer and there are little fairies that clean and put the dishes back in the cupboards. Other times I get tired of listening to Kynlee cry while she tries to communicate to me that she is not happy the only way that she knows how. But when she snuggles with me or smiles at me while we play, I don't mind the boring or challenging tasks that come with Motherhood, I love being a Mom. So happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful Mothers in the world.
And especially to my wonderful Mother. I love you and miss you.
