Happy Mother's Day!!

I don't post much (Beth does most of that), but I wanted to thank all of the wonderful mother's in my life. I grew up with a great mom who took excellent care of me and my siblings and was super fun to be around. We learned the gospel in our home at her feet and we were encouraged to become our own people. I love you mom!! Happy Mother's Day!!

I have been blessed with a wonderful mother-in-law that I get along with famously. I tell her I won the in-law lottery because she is so wonderful and I feel like a natural part of the family. She raised such a wonderful daughter that I could never thank her enough for what that has done for my life. Thank you for your daughter!! You are wonderful!! Happy Mother's Day!!

My sisters are great mom's too but I don't have a lot of experience with them as mothers but their kids don't seem to be too messed up so that says something. They were wonderful sisters to grow up with and I love it when we have a chance to spend time together. Thank you for all you do. Happy Mother's Day!!

I have some wonderful sister's in law that are excellent examples of mothers as well. Your children are growing up wonderful as well. I don't express my love for you much but thank you for what you bring to my life. Happy Mother's Day!!

I grew up close to my aunt who was, in many ways, like a mother to me as well. Thank you, Aunt Carol, for being there and helping to raise me. I'm sure you don't get thanked for that much so for you too, Happy Mother's Day!!

Of course, grandmothers can't be forgotten either. They taught my parents how to be good parents. I love you and owe much to you too. Happy Mother's Day!!

Now, for the one closest to me: my wonderful wife.
She deserves the prize!! She has to put up with me, which really isn't easy. She takes care of our children and she is raising them as wonderful little people. She is amazing. I can't ever find the words to express what she means to me. I have tried writing poetry and songs but I don't ever feel like they say nearly enough. She is so wonderful and beautiful but she seems to not know it. How crazy is that? There are things I wish I could do better for her because she deserves the best and sometimes I feel like I am not giving that to her. She is the most wonderful woman I have ever met (sorry mom). Thank you for all that you do for me, Beth. You are wonderful and amazing. I am constantly in awe at you. I won the wife lottery too. I love you soooooooooooo much. Happy Mother's Day!!!!
