I'm Grateful for Mums

Hey, did I forget to mention that my sweet Mummy is here from Australia visiting!!

It's been wonderful having her here, its been 3 weeks already and they have gone way to fast. I'm already becoming anxious for her departure which isn't for another 7 weeks. Maybe I can persuade her to stay until January. Don't know how smoothly that would go with Clint. I mean having your mother in law living with you for a few months can be well you know - mind boggling. But I'm loving it. It feels like having one of your best friends with you all day. We are having so much fun. We had a girls night out last Thursday and we had a ball. Let's see, my two favorites things to do: Eating and Shopping. But we didn't finish shopping till really late, next thing we know we were sitting at Chili's ordering ribs and Texas fries. I think we staggered home from eating to much at about midnight.

Here is the thing, I'll admit I do have feelings of envy whenever my friends and family talk about seeing their Mums. Sometimes, it hurts. I try to remind them how lucky they are. I also try to put the feelings aside and just be grateful that I have a Mother who is alive and loves me. Even though she is far away, I can always pick up the phone just to say hi and that I miss her. The absence has made me appreciate her in a million different ways that I never could have imagined if I hadn't of been away from her.

Thanks Mum! I love you... You have made me feel whole again. You have also reminded me of who I am and what I have achieved. I hope I never take you for granted. I can't wait to spend the rest of the Holiday season with you and our babies...

Your mom is so beautiful. Elle, I don't know how you do it. I live away from my mom too and it is so hard...luckily mine is only 4 hours away. Enjoy every second with her! It sounds like you are having so much fun together. She probably loves seeing the sweet kids:)
