Happy Mother’s Day!

I just wanted to wish every mom a wonderful Mother’s Day.  I also want to give a special shout out to my mom who has been an awesome supportive mom the past 25 years!  Thanks for staying home with us all 19 years I was at home. Thanks for waking me up each morning with a healthy breakfast ready hot that I had requested the night before. Thank you for driving me to school everyday, even though I was embarassed by the old rusty vehicles we had.  Thanks for being at all my sporting events, even when all I did was ride the bench.

I also wanted to thank the 100 + moms I get to work with each week.  Thanks for working SO hard for me.  Thanks for realizing you are important and worth investing in.  Thanks for changing your lives so you can change the lives of you family and be a healthy example to your children.  Thanks for allowing me to live out my dream each and every day!

You may have seen this email floating around, I want to thank Susan Galgon for sending this to me.

  1. Thanks Dustin!! Very sweet of you! I have gotten the “Why God made Moms” email before and it is so cute. My son is in second grade so I can really apprecitate it! 🙂 Thanks for all you do for us Moms!

  2. Thanks Dustin! Your words were very touching. Our boys wrote some of those quotes when they were younger for Mother’s Day. Our youngest quoted “My Dad says we should be good because if Mom’s not happy, nobody’s happy”. Thank you for caring about us Moms!
