Mothers Day!

This year Mothers Day has a new meaning for me. I’ve been so happy to welcome each and every one of my children into my arms and my care. I never dreamed that the day would come that I’d have to let one of them go. I’m am so incredibly thankful for all my babies and the precious time I have with them. I’m thankful to my mom, mom in law and grandmothers for all they’ve done for me and how much they’ve taught me and the amazing example’s they’ve set for me.

I’m so very very thankful that my Heavenly Father saw fit to bless me with these amazing beautiful spirits from heaven. That he trusted me to take care of these precious gifts from him and give them the best care I can. To be a mother is everything to me and although I’m missing one of my children so much today I’m so thankful for the time I was able to spend with him, and I’m eternally grateful for the time I get to have with all my children now and in the eternal perspective. What a wonderful gift to be a Mother.

Katie was first and I was so excited to become a mom. I couldn’t wait for her to arrive.

Madison was next and she was so different than Katie, they looked completely opposite I could’ve never guessed two sisters could look so different.

Jenna was my third beautiful daughter we had no idea what to name her and she was so tiny and pretty.

Isaac was my first little man and we were so thrilled to bring a son into our family.

And then there was Gabriel, who knew he’d teach us so much and bring us so much joy and sadness when he left us to fulfill a mission that I couldn’t be prouder of.


  1. Beautiful babies. Happy Mothers day!

  2. Each different and special. It was nice to see them in sequence like that, especially having only known each of them as part of the "walking and talking" crowd.

    You're a great Mom, Amy.
