Happy Mother’s Day!

Wishing you all a wonderful Mother’s Day.

As a mother, I appreciate being a mom Everyday…even when they can’t seem to get along ( Hi Laila…she reads my blog).  :).

Being a mom is what I wanted, and  everyday I learn what it means to be more understanding, more  patient and yes, even a more Loving mom. But today I thought about how there are some women who never really  saw being a mom as one of their titles.  But because of circumstances they’ve taken on that mother role anyway.

What do I mean by circumstances? We have lived in a world for many years where there are #Aunties, #Godparents, #Foster parents, #Social Workers and others that have taken on the role of a mother.   Regardless of the situation,  they decided to Love, protect, and care for  a child or children because they Care.

So I would just like to say Happy Mothers Day and thank you to them  also, for if it had not been for them, some of us Mothers wouldn’t be the most fantastic mothers out there today.

I hope you all enjoy today as much as I will!

One more special 1st Mothers day To My God Daughter Penelope’s Mom, I love you Leslie!

 

Meet My Family

Family portraits can be done in so many forms, you may want a classy, traditional or something fun and crazy.  Whichever you choose make sure they represent your family for who you all are.  Though I shot our family portraits during the holidays, I knew I wanted them to be displayed throughout our home.  So, I wanted our attire to reflect those colors.

The funny part about my family is only half of us likes taking pictures, so we don’t do them often.  I told Laila how well she did posing, she said “I knew if I didn’t do it right the first time, you would tell me to do it again.”    She knows mommy so well! That was her way of saying…hurry up.

I have one laid back daughter and one who loves life by expressing herself…a lot lol. I’m sure you’ll be able to tell them apart. They are total opposites, which makes my husband and I laugh a lot and grateful everyday for each of them. We’ve been married 15yrs and to see each of us in them is a blessing.

Here’s my family, Darrell, Tracy, Laila and Olivia Gober!  Enjoy
