To recognize a mom's love

Today is Mother's Day. Definitely one of my top 5 favorite days of the year. Because I get to celebrate some of the best people in the world ever - moms!

Who is my mom?
the one who's always in my corner
my cheerleader
the one who taught me right from wrong
the one who was always at my concerts and waterpolo games and all my other activities
the one who prays for me
the toughest and most courageous lady in the state, i'm convinced
the one who taught me how to love by loving me first, like Jesus did
the one who modeled Jesus
the one who prayed with me every night before bed
the one who held me when she vacuumed so i wouldn't be as afraid
Luigi's favorite person ;) 
the one who makes me excited to be a mom one day
the one who wrote notes in my lunches until i graduated high school
my defender, my confidant, my hero, my friend

 I love you Mom. Happy Mother's day. If anyone deserves a best mom award, it's you.

In addition...

The cool thing about getting married is I gain another woman in my family - J's mom! I am so blessed to have such a sweet and thoughtful mother in law. Thank you Kris, for being such a great example for Johnny and for me.
I love you!

Yesterday, we had a lovely breakfast with John's family, then sat together in church last night. Today, I went to church with my mom, then we stopped by to say hi for lunch. What a lovely weekend to celebrate two special women.
