Mother's Day

Matthew surprised me yesterday morning with a clean kitchen and roses and breakfast in bed. He must have gotten up really early. He is so wonderful. The best part of the whole holiday is that I have a little girl that makes me a very happy mommy. She brought me a rose and a card. She even did a little coloring in the card to make her mark.

Red Roses, Isn't Matthew so thoughtful!

A beautiful butter cream/Lemon cake. So Yummy!

And look what I got to come into the Kitchen to see. Isn't this amazing. Matthew did this all without me even knowing anything as I was asleep.

I can't say in words how much I love and cherish each moment as a Mother. Kathryn is so wonderful and I even like taking care of Matthew to. I just did Laundry this morning and I was putting away Matthew's shirts and just thinking of how happy I am that I can stay home and be a wife and mother and take care of the ones I love.

My mother, Millicent H Turley is the most amazing women. I wish I had a picture with her so I can post and you can see the love and passion and determination in her eye's. It's so wonderful living so close and I can go see her anytime I want. I could even go visit at school where she is teaching first grade if I really needed her. She always knows what to say and how to help. I ask her questions about raising Kathryn and she so modestly says "It's been so long" but still seems to know the right things to say.

Some things I love about her

1. She was a stay at home mom when I was growing up

2. She made the best green pancakes for St Patty's day, Candy cane pancakes for Christmas and JackoLantern pancakes for Halloween.

3. She gave the best back scratches every night growing up. I think she even did this into high school and even after college if I needed her to talk to before bed. She also gives the best foot rubs ever.

4. She is always encouraging me to do my best, in what ever thing I am into at the time.

5. She is the best grandma to her grand kids.

6. She is the strongest, most determined, and hardest working mom there is.

7. She's still with us after a long struggle with Breast Cancer.

8. She has a strong testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

9. She shares her testimony with me and my family.

10. She reminds me of my grandma Heaton, her mom.

My mom's Posterity.
