Happy Mother's Day!

Dear Miss T,
(Us and our babies...I love being your sister, and love that I have grown up enough that now I can do your hair too!)

Happy Mother's Day to you! I hope your boys spoiled you in some small way. You definitely deserve it.

This year is my first year to have a real live baby to hold, and hug, and kiss, and cry tears of gratitude over. I am so honored to be a mother, full time job that it is. But a big part of my willingness to take a leap into the unknown and weighty calling of a mother came because I saw you first bravely and courageously mother your children.

Thank you for finding the joy amidst the stress. The humor amidst the irritating. The hope amidst the overwhelming.

Thank you for passing on advice, baby bouncers, bottles, diapers, toys, and lots and lots of encouragement.

Thank you for being a beautiful, loving, intentional mother- and for helping me learn to be one too.

Love you Sis. Happy Mother's Day!


  1. That was an awesome description of your even more awesome sister, Kallene! Love you both so much!

  2. Oh KK, you are the best. I am not nearly as great as a mother as you think I am. I am glad you have joined the club and we can be mother's together.
