Gratitude

Happy Mother’s Day!

May 11, 2013

All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother.
— Abraham Lincoln

For my Mom’s present this year, I had our good friend Sam take pictures of our four generations.  The pictures turned out great and I know we’ll cherish these shots forever.  These two special women have set the best possible example for me of what a Mother should be.

My Mamaw is quick to make you laugh with her ornery personality, but covers her family in prayer every day of her life.  She raised triplets and my Mom, who was born 14 months later, all while working hard every day on the farm.  She was the epitome of a working mom.  How she did it without disposable diapers, bouncy chairs and Sesame Street, I’ll never understand!

My Mom is the happiest person I know.  She has a servant’s heart, and is always doing something for someone else.  She raised us three kids to be happy people, with tender hearts and a love of God and family.  She has always been there for us when we’ve needed her and is always our biggest cheerleader.  I’m so thankful for her!  

Happy Mother’s Day!

This is Elena. Our Light. You can see all the goodness and joy that shines from those deep blue eyes. She loves sneezes, yawns, industrial toilet flushes, automatic paper towel dispensers and The Star Spangled Banner. Music is her everything, specifically Moana, Frozen (really all Disney), Queen & Taylor Swift. Nothing makes her squeal quite like swimming, fast boat rides and her two brothers in trouble. In addition to her megawatt smile, Elena reminds us to cherish the smallest of victories, to live in the present, and to daily dwell in a posture of gratitude for every breath and every blessing.  

More About Our Story

I’m Emmalee, an ordinary gal born and raised in the Heartland. Wife to Chad, and Mom to Elena, Calvin & Turner, I spend most my days ridin’ dirty (literally so much trash) in my minivan carting kids to and fro. When I’m not being a Momager, I excel at self-care, cooking gourmet meals my kids won’t eat and deep-diving all the feelings. Most days, my attitude is gratitude, just taking life one step at a time.
