Has Mother's Day snuck up on anyone else this year? If you're like me you might be looking for a last minute idea for the wonderful mothers in your life. My mother is one of the sweetest people I know, but every year I struggle with what to get her for Mother's Day. She is the type of person who is hard to shop for because she has everything she needs. I decided that this year the best thing I could do would be to spend time with her and let her know how much I appreciate all she does.
I think that as mothers we sometimes get so caught up in taking care of others that we wonder if what we are doing is really making any difference in the world. I think there may even be some of us who struggle to feel our self worth. To feel that we are enough. So for those of you who wonder if you are enough I created this little printable. Hang it somewhere where you can see it often and know that you are enough.

This quote came from my five year old, Jonas. He is the absolute best at giving compliments and tells me a hundred times a day that I'm beautiful. He truly has the gift of making others feel loved and special. One day he just started saying "Mom is the best! A million more than enough!" It caught on and soon my four year old was saying it all of the time too. A lot of times I really don't feel like I am enough, and then one of my little boys will say this to me and it just melts my heart. To my little guys I am enough. I am their mother.
Happy Mother's Day to all of you wonderful women out there!
