Remembering Mother's Days Past

I had a beautiful Mother's Day. Beyond expectations. How can I not?

Mother's day will always be a miracle for me. There was a day, not that long ago, I thought I would never participate in this day.

Mother's Day 2002 I was pregnant.


For the fourth time. After three devastating losses.

I was not positive of the outcome. I hid away. I did not go to church. I did not celebrate. I did not allow myself any positive thoughts. How can one after trying for years. After losing three babies already? How can one find hope? Celebrate?

I remember keeping a low key day. Asking for nothing. Hoping and praying only for a miracle.

We were finally blessed with a little boy that November. And, only 15 months later, another little boy.

Two miracles. Back to back. I count my blessings every day, and feel doubly blessed on Mother's Day.

I want to share two things.

First, what Matthew wrote in my Mother's Day card after being asked to sign it.

"happy Mothers day I hop its Fun have a loving time injoy how it lasts. love Matthew

My heart just melts reading that. There is no gift in the world worth that.

Second, I made this video a few years ago of Matthew's first year. I still love it.

Happy Mother's Day out there all all of my Mommy friends!
