A Mother's Voice - Amanda

Welcome Amanda to Peek In Our World!  Amanda and I have been friends since high school and our mothers are dear friends.  We were so excited to find out that we were going to have babies within weeks of each other but I think Honey and Cici's excitement blew ours out of the water.  We love when Sutton comes to visit and our girls will always be friends. 

Thank you, Brooke, for including me in this incredible network of inspiring grandmothers and mothers.  I am a first time mommy to a darling 9 month old girl, Sutton, and have loved just about every minute of it. 
Below is a little glimpse of my prayers when I lay my head down at night….

Lord, thank you for the love of the mother you blessed upon me,
Whose love is so precious that it can never be measured,
Whose patience and wisdom seem to have no end.

Thank you for giving me a mother who believes in me
when I found it difficult to believe in myself.
And for saying what I’ve needed to hear sometimes,
instead of what I’ve wanted to hear.

I pray for my mother’s love, devotion and endurance to rest within me,
and for Sutton to feel this same special love.
May her days be filled with rainbow lights,
Fairytales and sweet dream nights.

As some have referred to earlier, this is the hardest yet most rewarding job ever and no one can ever prepare you for this role.  I honestly don’t know where I would be without the encouragement, advice and love from many of those who have guest blogged this week and of course, my incredible mother.  The love and wisdom my mom has provided me along this path of parenting is something I will always carry with me.  Mom, I hope that when you think of me, a part of you you’ll always see. 

I love you – Happy Mother’s Day!  XOXO!

What a sweet and well-deserved tribitue to an incredible woman. Aren't we all blessed to have Cindy in our lives? I know my life is better because of her. You are certainly your mother's daughter.
Sutton is doubly blessed!
