Not Your Regular Mother's Day Post...

This isn't your regular Mother's Day post. But to me it's an important one. I know that it's a day to celebrate Mother's and give them/us a big giant thank you for all of the hard work and sacrifices that they make along the way. And I love it, it's one of my favourite days to celebrate. 

I love the day the celebrates what we do as mothers because we all know its one tough gig. A super rewarding one, but it sure is a lot of work. 

I have three wonderful, amazing children who I love more than life itself. And I wouldn't have them without my husband. Without Todd, I wouldn't have Mia, Ryan and Connor and I wouldn't be a mother and being celebrated on Mother's Day. See where I am going with this?

Thank you Todd, for helping to make me a mother. I wouldn't be able to do it without you, literally and figuratively. Thank you for helping me to create these amazing little people that are our children. Thank you for always supporting me and encouraging me to be the mother that I want to be.

Thank you for always having my back, thank you for always telling me I am doing a great job. Thank you for listening when I am telling you my struggles and where I think I am failing.

Thank you for celebrating my role as a mother. Thank you for celebrating me.

I know there is Father's Day to celebrate fathers. But that's not what I mean.  Father's Day celebrates his role as a father and how he does it, this is to thank and acknowledge how he helps and enriches my role as a mother and it is darn important. It doesn't diminish the celebration of me as a mother by thanking and recognising his importance in it.

So thank you Todd, for helping to make me a mother, and for continuing to support and encourage me every step of the way along this journey.
