Three days after my birth. From my mama's journal. (Which she is letting me borrow.)
Sweet Emily...I sure love having her with me. I talk and sing to her and she stares right into my eyes like she understands every word....It's peaceful, and a sunny day, and I sure feel happy and lucky to have my sweet daughter here at last. I'm thankful and telling Heavenly Father real often how I love her and that I'll do my best to bring her and all the children back to Him. My five babies have been my most faith-promoting experiences. They have all been miracles--how can anyone doubt God's love and power? The baby, in my opinion could easily have died in delivery, yet was born without one mark! A perfect treasure to protect and give back to Heavenly Father still beautiful, pure and lovely! What a challenge in these days. I hope we can do our best with all five--they all belong to Him and have such great potential!
Hope you don't mind me sharing this, Mommy! It sums up for me some of your greatest qualities as a person and as my mother: Your strong faith in a loving Heavenly Father, and the tremendous love you have for your children. (And now grandchildren.) I love you lots and lots and can't wait to see you in August! xoxoxo

And a special thank you to my mother-in-law Susan for raising such a great son! He made me French Toast with caramelized peaches for breakfast, and a Thai feast for dinner today. I think I'll keep him! Plus, you're just a cool lady even without taking your exceptional off-spring into consideration! We love you. And some day I'll download a bunch of your photo's to show off on my blog! :)
To all the Mommies out there: May you strive to be as cool as mine.

And to those of you who HAVE a mother (or two or three): My mom can beat up your mom. (If she wanted to, but she doesn't.)
Happy Mother's Day!!!
