Happy Birthday Momma!

Today is my momma's birthday. I am such a blessed girl that God gave me the best mom in the whole world (I'm sorry... but it's true). Every year and every day that passes as I raise my kids, I love and appreciate my mom more and more and more.

Being a {good} mom is probably one of the most selfless jobs around. You slave away day and night to keep someone else healthy and happy. You sacrifice your body, you lose lots of sleep... and I think I've realized in the last four year since I became a mom, everything my mom has done for me. And it doesn't stop when they're grown and married... I rarely go more than 24 hours without talking to or seeing my parents. And just like I said in Hudson's birthday post that I am exactly who God made to be Hudson's momma, I am so grateful that God gave me the best parents for ME.

I am very close to both of my parents. I wouldn't say I am a momma's girl OR a daddy's girl because I am equally close to both of them. I can honestly say that my parents are my best friends in the world. And I know they would drop anything to be there for me if I needed them, and they have so many times (like flying back from Cancun two days into their trip to make it in time for Rhett's birth).

My mom is my shopping buddy. She's my confidant and my cheerleader. My personal "doctor". She's my first phone call with good news. This last year has been so trying with our family, but my parents have been there to step in and help with the boys or just be there to talk or cry to. I don't take that for granted at all.

And my mom is THE best Grammy. The boys adore her. Hudson's favorite thing is that Grammy makes him homemade donuts when he spend the night with them. He won't even eat any other kind of donuts now because Grammy's are SO good.

Happy Birthday, Mom. I am so thankful for you every single day. I hope you have a very special day! I love you!

XOXO,
Jen
