Mother's Day Thankfulness

Every year as my daughter gets older, I appreciate and love Mother's Day more and more.  This year feels very special as my daughter is beginning to understand the day too. 

A few days ago I picked up my daughter from preschool.  As I waited in the carpool line I saw her exit the school with a beaming smile.  We waved at each other as she skipped and hopped toward the car.  Once inside she handed me a rolled up purple paper with a string wrapped around it. 

So grateful to be this little girl's mom!

"For you Mommy, open it up.  Open it up!"  She shouted.  "Okay," I said as I pulled away to strap her into her car seat.  Once safely parked, I opened her door and she greeted me with the biggest hug.  "Here Mommy for you.  Happy Love Day!"  She said as she gave me her purple paper.

I opened up her sweet card made with her little hand prints- I loved it!  These special moments with my daughter are the most important and memorable for me.  Truly the best. 

Handmade cards are the best!
