Can you believe that this week marks 1 year that I started my blog?  Well, maybe you can, but I can’t.  That means 1 year of Monday Motivations (minus a few missed weeks when life got in the way).

Since Mother’s Day is this weekend I thought it would be fun to go back over the Monday Motivations from this past year and put some of the most popular posts about mothers together in one spot.  To read these Mother’s Day stories,  just click on the link or accompanying picture to take you to the post.  I hope all of you mothers out there feel extra loved this week and realize what a great blessing it is to be a mom.

Remember to click on the link or the picture below it to be taken to the Monday Motivation.  I have had so much fun this past year sharing my crazy life with you.  I hope that you will stick around with me for many years to come.    I am grateful every single day for the family I have been blessed with.  My boys are my life and I don’t know what I would do without them.

This Mother’s Day,  I hope all women,  whether you are a mother, an aunt, a sister, a teacher, a grandma, or a friend, know that you are making a difference.  I am so grateful for strong but sensitive women who have not only touched my life but the lives of my children.  I am forever indebted to my mother and her hours and hours of sacrifice in behalf of my family.  She is not only a wonderful mother but my best friend and I still turn to her for guidance, encouragement and to find assurance that I am doing okay.  Some days you just need a reminder that things will work out.  I love you mom!
