Ode to mothers... a couple weeks late!

Now that life has kind of slowed down a bit for us I thought I would take the time to do a late mothers day post! I have been blest in my life to have the best examples of amazing mothers and grandmothers! Anyone who knows my mother, mother-in-law, grandmothers, sister in-laws, and aunts would have to agree with me!

My mom came up to Provo for Women's conference a few weeks ago and I absolutely loved spending time with her! My mom is amazing! I thank the Lord every night for sending me to her! She is the kindest, most caring, and loving person I know! She is also my best friend, I will never be able to repay her for all she has done for me. I only hope to one day be half the woman she is. I honestly don't know who I would be with out her loving example and friendship! I love you mom!
While she was in Provo we went shopping, attended women's conference and made delicious chocolate covered strawberries!
this is my mom and I eating our chocolate covered strawberries!

I am now extremely blessed to also have Justin's mom as my mother! I absolutely love her and I am so grateful to her for the wonderful example that she is to me and all of her family! We get to go to California soon to visit Justin's parents and brother Adam, and that will be a lot of fun!

Here are just a few of the other amazing women in my life!

My Grandma McDaniel has always taken the time to show her love for us. She is constantly serving her family, and the Lord. She is such an amazing example, and I owe her so much gratitude and thanks for all that she has done for me in my life! I feel as if I still have so much to learn from my grandma McDaniel, good thing I get to have her with me for eternity! :)

My Grandma Robison is trully an amazing person! She is the such an amazing woman! She is constantly uplifting others through her amazing spirit and kind and loving heart! She is a daredevil too which she proved by going on every ride at Disney Land a few months ago. And we used to joke that if women were ever allowed to be prophets she would be the first woman prophet! :) Also, we always joke that if you ever want a prayer to come true you should have her pray for it, cause her prayers always come true!
This is one of my favorite pictures from our reception!

Grandma Martin is the spunkiest lady! I hope to have the energy that she has when I am her age! She is so funny and loving and I love that she loves to do puzzles! She has led an amazing life full of adventures! Justin and I love to see her, and feel blessed to have her in our life!

Justin and I traveled to Moab this weekend and got to spend some time with his Grandma Johnson! Wow she is the coolest! Her father was a member of the group of pioneers who came down through Hole in the Rock at Lake Powell! Hiking hole in the Rock is a tradition for my family, we hike it at least every other year at Lake Powell and I was amazed when I found out her father was one of the people who came through there! What amazing pioneer heritage!

Anyways, I know that this post is a little late, but I figure its better late than never!

Thank you to all you moms out there!
