{Brace yourselves....this is gonna be mushy}
There are not enough words to describe how I feel about my Momma.
I have been sitting here trying to find the perfect way to talk about her on this special day, but...... I am having a hard time putting it all out there because of what our family has experienced over the last little while.
Her love and devotion for my Daddy as he went through a horrific time over the last year.
Her bravery as she fought every single day to get him healthy again.
Her commitment towards, not only her immediate family, but also towards her friends and acquaintances even when she was experiencing the toughest time of her life.

I am positive there is no woman stronger...
...full of more love...

She is my Hero.
My new goal in this short, fragile life is to live with as much authenticity and bravery as my Mom.

And I fear that it is unachievable.
But I will try.

Even as our family travels this journey without my Daddy, I know my Mommy will make it through it all just fine.
Because she is strong...
perfect in every way.

For my Mommy......

{Told ya.  Totally mushy.}
Happy Mothers Day!!!!

Authentic. Brave. Are their higher compliments? Your relationship with your mom is truly inspiring. Hope you all share a wonderful day, and that the road ahead of you this year is {at least a bit} less rocky.

I agree with Emily....wonderful post.

Love the pictures of you and your momma.

Happy Mother's Day to you (and your mom) and, if I'm not mistaken, Happy Birthday to you. I wish you much joy for the coming year. xo

Mother's Day is so bittersweet for me since losing my mom in 2010. I enjoyed being celebrated myself but it felt wrong not to do anything for her.

Love the photos!!

You look SO LIKE Princess in the first photo!!
