I am doing a few catch-up posts... Mother's Day was extra special this year knowing that another sweet baby was growing inside of me. I sat in the church service overwhelmed by our God's provision in our lives. I remember so vividly sitting in those "mother's day" services just 3 years ago in so much intense pain. I wanted to stand when the pastor called for the mothers to stand, I wanted the flower that all of the little kids ran out in the congregation to give the mothers. But, I couldn't stand or get a flower... I had to just sit there wondering if I ever would! This year, I stood. I stood and I looked around the room and into the eyes of several young ladies that were still sitting and I didn't want to stand anymore. I wanted to go wrap my arms around them and tell them that it is going to be OK! But, as I stood, I closed my eyes, focused and praised God for what He has done in our lives and for what He is going to do in our lives.
For this sweet, bubbly, smart, independent, curly haired little princess....
who loves her momma...
... and this kind, compassionate, smart, atheletic, handsome little man,
who gives excellent kisses!!
