I've had a fabulous weekend. Mother's Day always brings mixed emotions for me. I'm overwhelmed with how blessed I am to have my perfect Mom, Debbie. And blessed to have a wonderful Mother-in-Law, Sandi. I also reflect on all the women in my life who have helped and supported me throughout my life, Grandmas, Aunts, sisters, cousins, etc. It's more of a "women's Day" for me.
It was just a few Mother's Days back that I was in the middle of miscarrying a hopeful 2nd pregnancy that came 8 months after my first pregnancy, which was medically terminated for possible life threatening reasons. It was one of the most trying and growing times of my
personal life. And while I seriously disliked the "holiday" and tried to focus on my mom instead of being a mom - A certain appreciation developed for this special day we celebrate motherhood.
I love the talk by Sheri L Dew, "Are We Not All Mothers?" She says it all best.
My heart is full to be so blessed to have Scarlett as my daughter. I get to be a mom to one of the most beautiful, bright, tender, and sassy daughter's of God who is blossoming with personality. I'm so excited to meet my son, and recognize how blessed I am to have this opportunity to mother another
spirit entrusted to Seth and I.
Seth got me the most beautiful bouquet of flowers I've evvvvveeer received!! AND - he got me a crepe maker. Mmmmmm. That could be seriously bad news.
Saturday night, last night, we went and splurged at the IMAX and saw The Avengers in 3D - such a great movie! Extremely entertaining.
Today - We had cinnamon rolls for breakfast, had a seriously great time at church, and had a delicious steak dinner with Aubrey & Davin (and Preston & Claire). It really has been a very wonderful last few days.
