Today Justin and I got to spend the day with our two favorite people...our moms. We both have absolutely incredible mothers, and as we went throughout our day visiting with them, I got to thinking about how blessed I truly am to have these two women in my life. They are both so giving and loving, and I hope that one day when I am a mom myself that I will be able to be half as great as they are.
My mom and I are very close. She's not only my mom, but she's one of my best friends.
I can't even tell you how many nights we've spent staying up together talking, laughing, and crying. Or how many lunch dates and shopping days we've had. Or how many times she's taken me for a late night ice cream run just because she can tell something is on my mind.
My mom is honestly the most selfless, giving person that I have ever met. Her one goal in life is to make sure the people she loves are taken care of. I go to my mom for everything, and not a day passes that I don't call or text her with good news or something to complain about, because I know that if there's one person that will rejoice with me, or just listen, it's her.
I hope that one day if I ever have a little girl of my own, I can have the kind of relationship with her that my mom and I have together.
My other mom, my mother-in-law Corinne, is the most hard working and kind woman that I know. Not only did she raise three incredible young men to be just as determined and hard working as she is, but I have never heard her say one negative word about anyone. She is just filled with love for those around her, and she has given me such a warm welcome into the Reynolds family that I feel like I've been a part of it for ages.
I feel so blessed to have these two beautiful women as my mother's and my examples. I love them both so much, and on this Mother's Day, I just want them both to know how much I look up to them and how incredible I think they are. Happy Mother's Day, moms!
