Mother’s Day didn’t quite turn out like I expected it to, but it was still a great day. I’m not sure if other mothers can relate, but the only thing I really end up wanting for Mother’s Day is a day where I don’t have to do the things that mothers do. I’d like to sleep in, not worry about breakfast, not deal with diapers, etc. I didn’t get to sleep in, but I did get to spend time with my Grandmother, Mom and sister with fewer interruptions. We also had fun celebrating my Dad’s 60th birthday.
To start off we went to church. For Mother’s Day our Pastor set aside time to do infant/child dedications. We dedicated Abigail and Sarah a few months into their lives. Lily got to be 18 months old before we dedicated her! Better late than never.
We knew when we found out we were having Lily that she belonged to God and that she was one of His many gifts to us. This was still an important thing to do-we stood up in front of our church family to vow to model and teach them about Christ’s love for them.
After church we headed to my parents’ for dinner and a birthday celebration (more on that in a later post).
I mentioned this on Facebook, there are still days when I look and see three little girls and think, “These are my kids. I am a Mom!?” So much can happen in five years, a lot of hard times with tears, but the happy times outshine those. So I won’t trade these past few years for anything (no, not even a full night of sleep . Happy Mother’s Day!
