Mother’s Day GiveAway

Good Morning Friends,

I’m so excited to be doing my first GIVEAWAY!! I’m glad you stopped by today and hope you will leave a comment at the bottom to be entered for this great Mother’s Day basket.  Target has to be one of my favorite stops and so I thought I would pick a few things from there that I would like to receive on Mother’s Day!

Before I get to the basket, I just wanted to share my thoughts on Motherhood.  I have been a mother now for almost 15 years.  I have kids ranging from ages 14 down to 6.  These kids, along with my husband are my everything.  I find so much fulfillment in being a mother.  I really lucked out with some special children.  We just got home from a week long vacay in California.  We had such a great time.  Mike and I were talking one night and I was saying what fun kids we have! When they are not fighting ;), we have really funny kids.  They are getting to the ages that we can relate with them.  Tell jokes that they understand and talk about things maturely.  It’s nice when you can call your kids, your friends.  I felt like that on this trip.  It was fun to just hang out with them for 7 days with no interruptions and for a time I could have them all to myself. I cherish these moments with them.  I know they won’t last forever and I am grateful to be able to make memories with them now. 

I also wanted to give a little tribute to my own mother.  I look back on my childhood and I wonder how she did it.  She really did it all! Raising 5 kids, sparkling clean house, 7 course meals every night, and still found time to take us to do fun things as a family.  She is a strong women, who loves God, her husband, her children and her 22 grandchildren. When I was 17 my mom went back to college to get her degree.  She worked so hard and even made the Dean’s list.  She kept our family running and still found time to cook 7 course meals! She taught music in the elementary schools for almost 20 years after that.  She always does things to the highest degree and with full effort.  She is very smart and an exceptionally talented musician.  I’m grateful a few of her many talents rubbed off on me and she has helped me become the mother I am today by her example.  I love her with all my heart.

Ok, now that I’ve shared my thoughts, its now time to share the goodies!
