There isn't a day that goes by that I don't feel blessed.  I am blessed x8.

I was blessed with a wonderful mom of my own. There just aren't words out there to say how much that means to me.  I credit her great parenting, for my own successes.  She was an excellent example of love and strength and patience.  Thank you Mom!
I was blessed with an amazing mother-in-law.  There is a lot of stuff that goes around about in-laws, but none apply here.  I LOVE spending time with her!  And my girls do too.  She raised a wonderful son and her parenting is evident in his parenting.  Thank you, Nancy.
The Lord blessed me with an AMAZING husband.  I am able to be the mom that I am, because of him.  He is loving and patient and supportive.  He is soooooooooo helpful and involved.  I know that not all husbands are like him.  He is a diamond in the rough and I am so blessed to have him in my life and the father of my girls.
I was blessed with Alice almost 10 years ago.  She taught me how to BE a mom.  She was the first....and she stretched my heart in ways I didn't know it could.  It's tough to be the oldest, and I have a special place in my heart for the trailblazer of the pack.  Being first can be tough...cause your parents are still learning.  She takes it all in stride and we are proud of her.
I was blessed with Kate almost 8 years ago.  She taught me confidence in my skills and I was a more comfortable relaxed mom the second time around.  I have a special place in my heart for her.  It can be tough to be the one that follows.  But  she is finding her way well.  And learning to blaze her own path.
I was blessed with Ella 5 1/2 years ago.  I thought that a third girl would be easy, but she showed me a whole new personality.  I have a special place in my heart for my middle girl.  It can be a tough spot to be.. I know:)  But as she grows, she is doing it more and more graceful and enjoying her role as a one of the "big girls" now.
I am BLESSED to be this girls mama!  3 1/2 years of blessings from her.  My love for her can be overwhelming sometimes.  She has taught me strength and persistence and I admire all the hard work that goes into fighting so hard to be healthy and learn.  She has a love for life that I am soaking up.  There will always be a special place in my heart for this fighter.
I am blessed to be this baby's mom.  My little one.  My last one.  And these 15 months have flown by.  She has taught me to savor every moment.  Stick floors and piles of laundry are not as important as peek a boo.....again!  
 Motherhood:  It is everything I wanted and more.  These girls are my life and I am so blessed to be there Mom!

Happy Mother's Day to my 8 blessings and all the moms out there!
