Last week we had a very nice Mother's Day. We had a delicious family dinner that evening, and Nate made an amazing fruit tart for dessert!!! I am so lucky to have a husband who can/will make special treats for me! As frustrating and discouraging as it often is that we do not have more children, I am very grateful for the opportunity I have to be the mother to the amazing son that we do have. For Mother's Day, he bought me a balloon that says "Mom, your the best."
I am also incredibly grateful for my own mother. I have such a wonderful relationship with her. She has never stopped being a great mom, and Austin thinks she is an amazing grandma too! Really, having dedicated parents who are good examples of what parenthood is all about has been one of the great blessings in my life. I am also grateful for my mother-in-law, who is so easy to get along with and patient.
