the best Mother’s Day. Somewhat surreal. My family is finally complete. My first Mother’s day with ALL my children. I tried to reflect on that today.
I woke up to a sweet little coo. Then a morning nurse. Back to bed for a morning cat nap while daddy takes care of the kiddos. Finally get up. I remember that I am at my BFF’s house for a visit. What could be better then that?
Wake up to the smell of blueberry muffins. YUM!! made from fiber one mix. Always need more fiber. Good Good.
Four crisp white papers placed in my hand. One says, “You are the best mom in the universe.” The other, “I love you because you play with me.” Another, “I love it when you lay by me and sing to me.” and last a coupon for a 4 person massage. Each person will massage a different part of my body… it expires tonight.
Off to church for some spiritual uplift, and guess who the speaker is? None other then my BFF. I sat in the peaceful mother’s room, and nursed my little baby as I listened.
Wonderful. I was able to listen without distraction. Tears pouring down my cheeks
as Krysta spoke about motherhood with such a sweet reverence and utmost respect. Like it is the most important job on earth. Oh wait, it is!! There was nothing more wonderful then nursing my last little miracle while my favorite friend shared simple reminders of how our time could not be better spent.
Home for a little rest. Tess is unsettled. I lay her next to me on the bed. We lay there for 30 minutes. She grabs my cheeks, smiles, coos and snuggles with me. One more reminder of
how love really makes the world go round. Love is what motherhood is all about.
Tess finally settles. I make sugar cookies. A favorite for everybody. I haven’t had a cookie in 5 weeks. I deserve one today. So… I’ll have 2 or 3 or maybe 15.
Off to the farm discovered by Krysta to take family photos. What a wonderful day to capture
my family. My family. They are mine. These five people are what made me a
Home to dinner. Yummy!! Cafe Rio.
Time to redeem my massage. HEAVEN. Tessa lays between Jonathan and I on the
bed. Isaac rubs my feet. Jex my back. Stella my legs. Jonathan my neck. He leans over and whispers I love you.
So surreal. Four children. All mine. A miraculous beauty.
A remarkable day…. I will not forget.
