It's That Day. I know that so many feel very bittersweet about Mother's Day. I have to admit, I always thought of it as being for my mother. I didn't dare think about it in terms of myself.
When I got pregnant I always imagined a room full of flowers and some sort of huge celebration for my first Mother's Day. It's been quiet, and I have to admit I like that. My parents came into town, my mother brought me flowers. M is going to make a little piece of artwork for me with Luke footprints that I can take to work. The biggest miracle is that the temperature is mild and the humidity is low enough for us to have the windows open.
I have a family and a deep sense of gratitude that grows every day. A room full of flowers and a huge celebration seem to pale in comparison to that. I have everything I need.
Here is Luke in his baptism gown. It was worn by M and was made out of his mother's wedding dress. Love the bonnet!
