For My Mom

There is no greater gift than family - those that you love whole-heartidly and those who love you back unconditionally. I have been so incredibly blessed with a family that is close, giving, happy and so unselfish. I can not begin to express my gratitude to them - there are simply no words. Since it is Mother's Day this weekend, I must send a huge hug and mountains of love to my Mom. She's undeniably one of the kindest souls one could ever meet - generous, loving, always willing to help and a Christian woman. It is her desire in life to ease the burden of someone else or to simply lend a hand wanting no recognition in return. I treasure her, respect her, admire her and dearly LOVE her.

I also am grateful for the blessing of being a mother to my sweet son. He is what makes my life fun, happy and completely fullfilled. I strive to be the mother to him that my mom has been to me.

I thought I'd share a couple of pictures with you - one is of me, my mom and Casen when he was little. Sorry, I had to take a picture of a picture - it was the only one I had of us all together. The other is of my sweet lil' man - Casen.

Wishing you all a Happy and Beautiful Mother's Day weekend. Blessings to you all! Cathy
