Mother’s Day is this weekend and I have been able to reflect on how grateful I am to be a mother. It’s funny all of the emotions and feelings you get when you are pregnant, and your remember what a blessing it is to have someone call you mom. Some days are tough, but through the tough days come rays of light that make being a mother and all the hard work worth it. My sister, who is amazing, came and filmed my girls and me together doing the things we love. I will cherish this forever! Check out my Happy Mother’s Day video.
Happy Mother’s Day Video
Don’t you just love this? I wanna cry because I love it so much! So often we as mothers are the ones behind the camera. We don’t get to see ourselves interact with our kids and therefore, they will not have these records of us interacting with them. I encourage every one of you mothers to have someone film you doing what you love best with your children. It was so much fun. Even if you set up a camera on your tripod and set the self-timer, its so important to take pictures of you in the picture instead of always behind the camera.
I am lucky enough to have a sister who is a videographer and a sister who is photographer. My sister who filmed this video does an amazing job and you can find her on Instagram at @maddeeshawfilms.
Some of my favorite things to do with my girls are:
Play matching game (and my girls slaughter me every time!)
I love doing their hair but they don’t!
Going on bike rides
Livi loves doing airplane
We love to craft together
Eating popsicles on the porch
Call the tickle monster
I set up my camera a few months ago while big sister was at school and the little sis and I were playing matching game…
I will cherish these foreverrrrrr! I am so grateful to be a mother to these special, young, naive spirits and daughters of God. I am so grateful to be called to be a mother here, on Earth. I wish all of you the best Mother’s Day ever. Please go download this free printable with one of my favorite Mother’s Day quotes HERE
