Sunday Family- May 12th

Happy Mothers Day All!

I'm just going to say it: Mother's Day is hard for me. Every year I tell myself I'm going to focus on the positive and let my short comings (which are vast and many) go but somehow the negativity  sneaks up on me. Thankfully, despite me getting a little down Scott & the kids made me feel so special- a Mother's Day corsage, flower bouquets, a nap and a long bath, No-Bake Cookies,
a nice long family walk, hugs, kisses, drawings and kind words.
I have to admit that I miss my own mom every Mother's Day too. It just isn't the same without her and every Mother's Day I wish she was here. Hug your mama's a little tighter today because it's so hard when they are gone. We did go visit her headstone today and sat out in the lovely sun chatting about her and all her awesomness. It was a nice cap to the day. I'm endlessly grateful that I have a fantastic mom-in-law who makes me feel like a daughter of her own. She raised one heck of a son and I love her for it!

Hope everyone had a great day and has a great week!

P.S. And the Olivia Carter No-Bake Cookie Recipe can be found here!

P.S.S. And for the joy of seeing how little my littles used to be here's Mother's Day 2012, 2011, 2009, & 2008 (Apparently I really didn't like 2010 Mom's Day because I posted nothing!)

You are not alone! I can't tell you how many moms have told me they have a hard time with Mother's Day - my mom included. I even talked about it in my talk yesterday (part of which is on my blog right now, to totally self-promote ;o)

I'm sorry you had to miss your mom. I wish so much that she could be there.
