Happy Mother's Day!

I was going to write this post a couple of days ago but I kept trying to get my thoughts in order. I mean how to you really put into words how you feel about your Mother? I know everyone thinks they have the best mom, but I know I do! In fact, I have TWO! My mom and my mother-in-law. :) The two of them are so differnt but somehow are both AMAZING!

My mom is the nicest, most patient, most giving person I know! I have always gotten along with my mom, in fact I can only remember her being mad at me once growing up and I deserved it! But, I never had that teen problem with my mom. She always knew everything and she still does! I have always appreciated my mom, but until I had Morgan I never realized how much she did for me and how much she loved me. I am so grateful for such a wonderful example in my life. If I can only be 10% of what she is I will be one lucky girl! Love you Mom!!!

My Mother-in-Law, Mom Lois, is one hard working cookie! Not just in the working world but in anything she does. She wants to make every moment special. I think she see just how short this life is and wants to make is as special and memorable as possible. She is a spiritual giant. She knows doctrine in and out and I love love love to sit and listen to her and learn something new every time! Love you Momma Sucher!

I think the most important thing that both of my Moms have accomplished is that they have both taught their children the importance of the gospel. Not just by teaching them the doctrine but living it in their lives everyday. I am so grateful for both of these beautiful women in my life and I hope I can live up to their examples. If I can my kids are going to be pretty lucky! :)

Now to Grandmas! (I am sorry, anyone who is bored can just stop reading, but I can't skip my Grandmas!)

My Mom's mom passed away when I was a freshman in high school. I was one of 62 grandkids! Because of SOO many grandkids I didn't get to know her as well as I wish I did but I remember that whenever she called she was always so sweet and she always knew what was going on in my life. Pretty impressive for being one of 62 grandkids!

My Dad's mom has always lived far away and we were only able to see her a few times a year. I just loved her crazy stories of her riding the bus, when she was a younger girl and her dating years! She has some great stories! She loves to have a good time wherever she goes!

Now, since I got married, I inherited some of the best Grandma's you can ask for that aren't blood related! Grandma Wirig and Grandma Sucher and taken me in like I was really one of their own grandkids. Not having my real grandma's close it was so fun for me to see Grandma's in motion! I LOVED every minute!

Grandma Wirig is so domestic! I mean that in a good way, this is how I want to be one day! She knows how to do everything! Cooking, sewing, crocheting...everything! The best part it she is willing to teach you anytime you want! I just wish I still lived in Utah to more take advantage of it!

Grandma Sucher is probably the most thoughtful person I have ever met! I don't know if I have ever had someone besides Grandma Sucher who has called me and said can I come babysit? I remember when Morgan was first born...I was a little overwhelmed and I was finishing school she called and asked if she could come and help me for a week! Just knowing someone was thinking about me and willing to sacrifice a whole week to come help me was one of the nicest things someone has done for me.

I think I am one of the luckiest people in the world when is comes to my Moms. I have been so blessed with a wonderful example of womanhood in my life. I wish everyone was so lucky! I could go on about all the other special women in my life but I will spare you and save it for another day! But thanks to all the special women in my life, sisters, sisters-in-law, friends, co-workers....I could go on but Heavenly Father has blessed me with these special ladies and I hope that my kids will be as lucky!

Okay, so I was just reading your other posts and I saw the one about the chair you recovered. You must tell me how you did this! Grandma and Grandpa Smith gave us a chair for our wedding that (bless their hearts) is not my favorite pattern. It's floral and I'm just not a floral person. I'm not very talented so I don't know if I could do it, but seriously you need to tell me how you did it because I'd love to try!
