if i had been more on top of my game i would have had this post out for mother’s day. ha. oh well! for mother’s day we went on a little day-cation on saturday as a family. we went to Longwood Gardens (in the rain) and then out to lunch and one of my all time favorite places(can ya guess where we are?). it was a lovely day that reminded me how thankful i am to be a mother to this little girl. i know a few friends who’ve struggled with infertility or infant loss and i know how fragile life is. this little girl is a gift. each moment is a gift. the hard days are just as much a gift as the good days.
and then i read this:
such a beautiful reminder! i do not deserve this blessing. God gave me this blessing of motherhood to glorify Himself in my life more than i could imagine. praise the Lord.
which also makes me even more thankful to announce this:
as if you couldn’t tell from the photos of me above. 😉
for those of you who didn’t know, we had an early miscarriage this past fall. it rocked me to the core. i really struggled with the loss and fear that i would never get to be pregnant again. but praise the Lord, He has seen fit to bless us and He has plans for this little baby! so, i’m going to get to be a mother again!
and i am so thankful.
