5 on Friday
Did you know that today is International Women's Day? It's true. It is. So today I'm going to celebrate the top 5 women in my life. Ok, that doesn't sound very fair at all though. There are a lot more than 5 women that have touched my life in ways that they will never know. There are more than 5 who have loved me at my worst and best. There are more than 5 who've changed the course of my life for the better. I love you all!
1. Number one has to go to my beautiful mom! Aren't we so cute in our "ugly Christmas Sweater" attire? I love that she is so fun to be around! She ALWAYS has THE best advice. She does! She always knows just what to say to make things better. She's also the most talented woman I know. I don't think there's been something she's tried that she's not good at. I miss her terribly right now! They are on a mission in Mexico. My dad is the mission president and she gets to be the amazing mission mom! Lucky missionaries!
5. Last, but not least, I'm going to celebrate me! I want to celebrate motherhood! It's what makes the the woman I am today. I ADORE my children. Adore. I went out this week and met up with a bunch of awesome women. We played a get to know you game. A couple of the women said how much they loved having a break from their kids and wanted to know if they "had" to go home. I honestly couldn't wait to get back to my kids. I must confess that I do need a break from the fighting and the messes but not them personally. I'm sure that's what they meant. I really do love my kids. There were also some grandmas who said their favorite things were getting texts from their grand kids saying they love them. I bet being a grandma is THE best thing in this world. But I sat there there and felt all kinds of happy because I have a 14 year old daughter who does that almost every day! I love getting her texts. Aren't 14 year old girls supposed to hate their moms by this point? She doesn't and I feel SO blessed.
Thank you to all the amazing women in my life. I love you all so very, very much. Now go celebrate you!
