Day 58: Mother's Day Gift

Considering my husband was going to be flying across the Atlantic on Mother's Day and my children are too little to understand the great importance of Mother's Day I figured it would be like all previous Mother's Days in my life...not special. However, my husband never stops amazing me. As I was rocking one child to sleep today for the 4th time there was a delivery to an apartment in Indiana that I happened to be staying. Delivered were a dozen red roses with a sweet card from my wonderful husband. I cried because I miss him, I cried because of his sweet words, I cried because I am so blessed to be living my dream life with my dream man. It makes me happy to make him happy by caring for our children. I love being a Mom, I love being a wife, and I truly love this life. The Lord is so good and so faithful to redeem Mother's Day for me. There was a time Mother's Day was one of my least favorite days of the year. It only brought the sting of bad memories to the front of my mind and reminded me of my loss. Mother's Day is now a day I'm reminded that I have the BEST babies, the BEST husband and the BEST job...MOM!

Today I'm grateful I'm celebrated for being a Mom.
