To all you mamas out there, Happy Mother's Day! I hope you were as spoiled and blessed today as I was by my boys.
It is great fun to have a child who is learning to write. Here are a few words my sweet 5 year old shared with me today:
Today was a lovely day for me... but I can't help thinking about those for whom this is a painful day. Women who pray and long and wait to become mothers. Women who have given birth to children but been unable to mother them. Daughters and sons who have lost their mothers. We can shrug it off and call it a 'hallmark holiday' (which it is), but it doesn't ease the pain for many who feel their losses more keenly on a day like today. If that is you... know that you are in my thoughts and prayers today.
To end this post on a lighter note, check out Z's very first school picture! We attend a once a week Mommy & Me class at the local preschool and even though the kids are only at school about an hour a week they still got to have their pictures taken. I don't know if it is the mini afro (Mama is still figuring out his hair, poor guy) or the retro shirt, but doesn't this look straight out of 1975? I love it!
