Mother's Day!


Mother's Day! I'm currently laying in bed about to fall asleep but wanted to journal. Today was an especially great day. I want to remember it. My heart is so full of love and gratitude. Riley wrote me a super thoughtful note and placed it on a photo and printed it and it seriously made me cry as he read it. So nice. Really fun day with the kiddos too. We played uno towards the end of the day and Luke had a funny quote during game. It was his turn and he placed down his card and said "reverse mamacita!!" and we all laughed way hard and he thought he was the funniest ever and called mamacita the rest of the night. 

Why I love Alyssa
I love Alyssa because she is quite literally the most kind person in the world. She brings light and goodness wherever she goes. 

I love Alyssa because she can do hard things and rarely complains. 
From living in a much too small apartment and giving birth in a foreign land, she handles it all so well. 

I love Alyssa because she spends time to develop her many talents. 
It's impressive how talented she is, in so many creative ways, much of which is self-taught. 

I love Alyssa because she is a fundamentally fun person. 
She naturally cheery, loves to laugh and still loves to throw in a prank here or there. 

I love Alyssa because she is incredibly giving. 
Even so much, that she should never make business decisions alone because she’d give most things away for free.

I love Alyssa because she is committed to family.
She comes from a great family and is committed to establishing our own family culture and traditions. 

I love Alyssa because she is active and a go-getter. 
She pushes our family to be on the go, chasing down experiences and memories which we now have because of her.

I love Alyssa because she takes care of her body.
She values health, is incredibly attractive and is a great playmate and lover. 

I love Alyssa because she is a believer in people. 
She chooses to see good and believed in me before I did. And that makes for a great life partner. 

I love Alyssa because she loves the Lord. 
Living the gospel has always been the top priority for her in life and seeks to be close to Him. 

I love Alyssa because she is an amazing wife and mother. 
She is tireless, the ultimate teacher, with love and affection that seem never ending

And that makes me, Luke and Clay the luckiest boys in the world.

Happy Mother’s Day. 
We love you.
