Happy Mother's Day

"Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her." Proverbs 31:28

Today...I am thankful. I am thankful for the moment the ultrasound proved that my pregnancy with Emily was not lost. Her twin did move on to Heaven sooner than I desired. The doctor scheduled a procedure but asked that I have an ultrasound first. Praise God we went for that ultrasound...a small beating heart prevented that very procedure. I am so thankful to be Emily's mommy.

I am thankful. I am thankful for our losses, for in those losses we were guided back to the heart of the matter, that I might be a mother once again. And again, the desires of my heart were granted. A beautiful baby girl with almond shaped eyes and an amazingly strong will. I am thankful to be Hannah's mommy.

I am thankful. I am thankful for the example my mother set for me. Her unconditional love, which she still demonstrates each and every day reminds me of the tenderness and longevity of motherhood. I love you.

I am thankful. I am thankful that my husband supports me in mothering our children. We agree that our steps are beautifully numbered as we parent our children. We see the miracle that is the gift of our girls and prayerfully consider all things where Emily and Hannah are concerned.

I am thankful. I am thankful the Lord trusted me with these precious children.

Wishing all of you mommies, mommy-to-bes, grandmommies, aunts, friends and all women who love on a special child in their life a very Happy Mother's Day.

I don't think I ever knew that about your pregnancy with Emily.

You are very blessed Heather but you are also such a blessing to me in my life. Thank you.
