Happy Mother’s Day weekend!! I think I’d rather say Happy Female Role Model Day. I think that would be more accurate. I know many of you on Mother’s Day are reminded of the kids you lost and the kids you wished for. My thoughts are with you. I really wish it was Female Role Model Day as so many don’t have children yet are great role models for children across the world and they should be recognized as well.
Over the last week or so, my kids did some things that really warmed my heart. I decided to share them with you all. For me, these are all so much sweeter than any Mother’s Day gift or any other recognition as a parent.

I know this is a completely accurate description of how Kelli sees herself when she comes home. She’s told me many times.
I love that even with my adult kids, I can still ease some of the stress of life.
these pictures of her and Gannon baking.
They were making a recipe that is a family favorite…my recipe for Fruit Brownie Dessert. You can find the recipe HERE.
I love that my recipes live on with my kiddos. I love that the tradition of baking with kids lives on. I love that they include kids in household tasks just like we always did.
To me, that’s a real compliment.
Kayla had these pictures on her Facebook wall…
This is Jasper playing in a blanket tent that Spencer made using quilts that I made them. The star quilt is from our book Country Girl Modern and the other is Perkimon Daydreams, a Bonnie Hunter quilt from THIS book. Kelli helped me make that one.
I love that are using things I made. I love that they are taking good care of Jasper and making him a priority. I love it all!! It truly warms this momma’s heart.
All of this is much better than a fancy Mother’s Day gift. This is sharing from everyday life. It warms my heart to know they think of me or things we did when they were kids. Even better I like that they do all non-prompted. None of this was prompted by a jewelry commercial making people feel guilty to buy something fancy. It was all just every day and pieces of me were included in it.
It makes my heart happy. I hope all of you can have a little glimpse of the impact you have made in the lives of others. Seeing those glimpses is a true treasure!
