Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day Everyone!

I started the day helping Amy deliver these flowers. The flowers were for a cheerleading fundraiser. We delivered 18 flowers. I think I was the only one who had 4 flowers. Thanks for supporting your sister kids. Zach's flower said, "It's all your fault my life is so great!" My kids also gave me real flowers. Thank you kids! Your great.
I usually don't like to go to sacrament meeting on Mother's Day because I feel guilty for not being a great mother but this year was different. Whitney's Sunday school class spoke and they were all very honest and funny. The Primary kids sang and the younger kids had flower face masks. That is one of the things I loved about Primary, wearing the flowers masks and singing for our mother's. Josh thought I was crazy but I loved it. Whitney read a poem in her talk. She told me after the meeting that she had written it for me. Thank you Whitney! Thank you to all my kids. It has been a great Mother's Day.

Whitney's Poem:

Mom

She taught me how to run and walk
She taught me how to pray and talk
She taught me how to give and share
She taught me how to love and care

She taught me how to read and write
She taught me how to fly a kite
She taught me how to love the Lord
She taught me what to do when bored

She is the one I look up to
The one I want to be like
The one who will do anything with me
Even go on a very long hike

My mother is an angel
Sent from up above
The women who through thick and thin
Will always have my love
