Mother’s Day Letters

Dear Mom,

Thank you.  Thank you for your unconditional love and sacrifice.  Thank you for teaching me to be strong.  Thank you for not letting me settle for less.  Thank you for teaching me how to be a good friend, wife and mom.  Thank you for being an amazing grandma to Joe and Leila.  Thank you for our phone chats and craft projects.   I can’t wait for you to move closer to me again.  I love you.

Dear Kids,

Thank you for changing me.  Thank you for molding me into a better mom, a better person.  Thank you for the hugs, kisses and giggles.  Thank you for letting me comfort you when you are sick or hurt.  Thank you for being such good kids.  I am so proud to be your mom.  I love you.

Dear Mom-in-law,

Thank you for raising such an amazing son. Thank you for being so much more than a mother-in-law.  Thank you for loving me as your own.  Thank you for being an incredible Nanna to Joe and Leila.  Thank you for our talks.  I wish we lived closer so they could happen more often.  I love you.

Dear Moxie Moms,

Thank you for your friendship, support and love.  I miss you all more than you know.


Dear Mamavation Moms,

Thank you for inviting me into your community.  You inspire me daily, and I am proud of everything are doing to build healthier lives for your families.

Dear moms who read this blog,

Thank you for making me a part of you day.  I love sharing life with you.  Happy Mother’s Day.

How are you celebrating today?

P.S. If you are looking for this week’s lunge, I will post it later in the day!

    Great post! We miss you too! Thanks for inspiring us all to be better moms who teach our kids healthy habits, teach them to cook, let them be active and creative. I love you!
