Mother's Day

Mother's Day is one of my favorite days of the year. Even though I don't think that I need a special day to tell my mom how much I love her, it is nice to have a day just that can be set aside to do that. This year, is seemed like the easiest thing to do would be to get all of the moms in the family together rather than trying to be in two places today. So that's what we did--Daniel's parents came to church with us, then we spent the afternoon picnicing and playing at Chesterfrost Park. This was WAY better than waiting around for two hours at a restaurant. Overall, it was a good day. Being a mom is the hardest thing I have ever done, and sometimes I feel like I'm not very good at it. Raising a child is a mission that gets constantly criticized by others, which often causes a parent to second-guess themselves. But I try.... :) And I know that at the end of the day, what is important to me is that Owen knows I love him.

Posing for photos is not at the top of Owen's priority list...
