Two Moms

This lady is the best mom in the world...

But see, this year, I have two moms to celebrate.  So while the above woman is the best mom in the world, the lady below is also the best mom in the world.  They are equally the best mom's in the world! 

I am so thankful for the Mom above.  While she's not my biological mom, she did give birth and raise a wonderful son--my husband.  Thank you Mrs. Patti for being David's mom and for being a wonderful mother-in-law to me.  I've never liked the term mother-in-law.  It sounds like a bad thing.  It's not.  We love you Mrs. Patti.

And while they are equally the best mom's in the world, there is no doubt that mothers and daughters have an incredible relationship.  And if David ever decides to write on our blog, I'm sure he'd tell you about all of the reasons he loves his mom.  He'd also tell you about the incredible relationship mothers and sons have.  But I'm not David.  So I'll leave that one to him.

My mother has taught me so much in life.  And nothing I could say would ever be enough to thank her for what she has sacrificed for me.  I can only hope that one day I'll be as good of a mom as my mom. 

The picture below {that has been on our blog before} captures the relationship my mom and I have.  It forever will be my favorite picture of my Mom and I.  We cried for 4 months after the wedding because we didn't think we took a picture together.  Then we cried again when we saw this one.  And screamed to let everyone in China know that we had, in fact, taken a photo together on my wedding day!

Love you mom!

And for the record, I meant to post this last night when we returned from visiting our moms, but I was drunk on Benadryl from all of the mosquito bits I got last night.  See Lessons from Lacey post below to find out about what Benadryl does to my body {if you care}.
