So to avoid that sort of a mess, I'll keep it very brief.
Happy Mother's day to the moms who get up at 6 am every morning and forget what quiet sounds like. To the moms who no longer expect or need to be pampered, praised, and showered with gifts on a specific day of the year because they have already sacrificed their own self on the altar of love.
Happy Mother's Day to the empty nest moms who pour love on another generation of children. Happy Mother's Day to the single moms, the expectant moms, the moms to many and moms to just one.
I honor and remember the grieving moms, and the women who still long to be moms. The Lord will fill an open heart and an open home, he is able to bring beauty from the ashes.
I thank my own mom for the many years she spent nurturing, sacrificing and raising her 6 children.
This morning my kids surprised me with this necklace this morning. I didn't expect anything other than a few homemade cards, and I honestly don't feel that I need anything gifted to me (I'm kind of cheap that way) but I love my gift. They were so excited to give it to me.
I am so thankful today that the Lord has blessed me with 5 little ones to call my own, and a 6th that he is preparing for us.
