Mother's Day Blessings

Mother’s Day and becoming a mother are almost indistinguishable to me.  Itty Bit was born the day before my very first Mother’s Day – so it felt like one giant global celebration of his arrival.

And while I am indescribably grateful for this little guy and the blessing of being his mother – my heart has been mindful of those who still ache for motherhood.

So today, while saying Thank You to the most amazing mother on the planet (Thank You Mom, for beating the brattiness out of me so other kids would actually play with me.  I kid, I kid…),  I also wanted to honor all of you Mothers at Heart.  Ones with children in Heaven, and children in wishes.

I remember.  And it was such a long road.  I’m there with you and believe that God’s timing doesn’t always make sense, but it still is perfect.

God Bless you – and may you have the most special day.

 

p.s.  Thank you to my boys who made me a Mother.  Even if you do put the everloving fear of God in me.

Looks like Mr. Daddy was a bit fearful at that moment too! But how much sweeter can it get that Itty Bit is so full faith and security in his earthly father that he can dive (quite literally) head first into nothingness.

Happy Mother's Day Rachel, I hope you had a great day!
