So today was mothers day. I must say, I am so grateful to be a mother. I am also grateful that I had a wonderful mother who taught me how to be a wonderful mother, even if sometimes I only qualify under the decent category. This Mothers Day, Rylee and Justin took me to the Salon to get my hair cut and colored. This may seem like an insignificant gift to some but to me it meant everything! I am sure that I am not the only person with this issue, but I have always been one to care what other people think about me and one to care about how I look. If I feel pretty, I have more confidence which makes me a happier person. When I am pregnant, I have a hard time feeling pretty. I think pregnancy is a beautiful thing, however I do not feel like it makes me look beautiful. I have been wanting to get my hair done for a while but have a hard time dropping that much money on myself to do it. However my dear husband who knows me all to well, decided that I did not have an choice in the matter and forced me to do it. Thank you Justin and Rylee, I LOVE IT! I already feel so much better about myself. Its amazing what a new cut and color can do for you! Also, my dear sweet husband took Rylee during Relief Society so that I could actually pay attention! Again, another small and seemingly insignificant gift that meant so much to me! It has been a long time since I have been able to hear a lesson from start to finish and until today I didnt even realize how much I missed it! I was able to come home from church and take a nap and after that we went over to Josh and Jamie's for a big taco dinner. After dinner we played a game with them and came home. AND MY FAVORITE gift of the day was when Justin willingly changed a poopy diaper! Oh the little things that make this day so special! Here is the picture that I had Justin take of me and Rylee for mothers day, I definitely dont take enough pictures of me and her together. I just LOVE being this little girls mommy! So blessed!
