So, what I'm grateful for this week is mothers. Motherhood is one of those things that is always on my mind, because that's what I do, but this past week I've thought about it more. We had a friend pass away this past week, she's the wife of Tavish's good friend growing up. She left a husband and 4 kids under the age of 8. We went to the viewing and it was just awful seeing those cute little kids there without their mom. Depressing, you can imagine how it felt being there as a mom in the same stage of life as this girl, and all the thoughts going on in my head- enough said about that.
This, and mother's day, made me think about how blessed I've been to have such a wonderful mom for all of these years. I also have a wonderful mother-in-law and grandma. And even though it's tough, I really like being a mom too. So- not to be morbid or anything- but if I die before my time please help Tavish find a new wife (even though it makes me jealous thinking about it, and I know he won't like that comment :) ). My kids need a mom, just like Mars needs moms.
Happy Mother's Day! I love you Mom!
