To the moms who unite and help each other out, KEEP ON SUPPORTING EACHOTHER! *A special shout out to the Moms of Forks Township Group! WOOT!

And to all the GRAND-moms out there who take care of us moms and grandkids, THANK YOU (TIMES A MILLION!)!

Mamas, you are loved, you are appreciated, you are supported. Thank you for all you do for your families! May God continue to bless you today and always. And may, on Mother’s Day, your sleep be PLENTY, your trips to the bathroom be BY YOURSELF, your day be sculpted around WHAT YOU WANT TO DO not what they want you to do and, of course, may your wine or mimosas OVERFLOWTH. I love you. Thank you for following, supporting and loving me! Let’s continue to give our children the best example by supporting each other in this the Mommy trenches! Happy Mother’s Day!

Prayers and Blessings Beautiful Moms,
