proud to be an american essayMotherhood is beautiful, scary, fun, hard at times, and rewarding. It changes you. Changes the way you think about life, the way you view things, and it’s given me a different perspective on how I see my Savior. I never knew I could love someone the way I do and the fact that the Lord loves us so much more than we can fathom blows me away.
I became a mom at 20. I was young, still a newlywed, and knew nothing about babies. I was nervous and scared but the minute the doctor told Zack and I we were going to be parents, love flooded my heart in ways I didn’t know possible. I wouldn’t change a thing about this journey and am thankful for the opportunity and blessing he’s given me in our children.I love the unique relationships I have with each of my girls. Their little personalities shine so differently. They have a light that radiates through them and it’s breathtaking.
Paisley is my adventurer. She has an interest and curiosity in everything. She loves to build and make things. She has a creative side to her that inspires me and makes me think in a different way. Her child like faith and love for God is incredible. She loves big. She has a heart for others and is an absolute joy. She’s so smart and quick witted and has made me a better person.Miss Sawyer Scout is our little firecracker. Barely two years old, she has such a bold personality. She’s constantly finding ways to make us belly laugh ourself to tears. She loves watching and doing what her big sister does. She has such a loving and onrey way about her. She loves makeup, and getting fixed up-Mama’s little girlie girl. Those baby blues melt me. I love her bear hugs and “sugars” when I come home and how much she loves to dance when we turn the music on. She’s absolutely special and I can’t wait to see her bloom this year.Being their mama has changed me for the better. I don’t want to know what life would be like without them. I’m so thankful for these daughters of mine. And for the husband God gave me as a partner in raising them. I’m a blessed woman.
I’m thankful to me your mama, Paisley and Scout. Thank you for loving me so much.
I hope this Mother’s Day is a special one for you. Counting my blessings daily.
