Whether this day makes your heart burst with happiness or makes your heart ache because you long to be called Mom, I hope you felt like you're part of a community. Whether you feel like you're in the pits of Motherhood, or maybe you're still waiting on the gift of a child, I hope you know that this is only a season.
Mother's Day is one of those things that's kind of like parenting. There's a lot of ways to do it really well and no one way that's the "right" way. My family made me feel extra special all day and treated me so well, but did I still change diapers? Yes. Did I still sit and feed the baby? Yes. Did I sweep the kitchen? Why yes, I did. And as I felt celebrated and appreciated, I realized that it's very rare that a Mom could actually take an entire day "off". And you know what?....It's because Moms rock. I hope your weekend was awesome and that even if you still did some of the ordinary stuff, that in those ordinary things, you saw how crazy your family is about you.
Our weekend included:
Saturday was my first 5k. Oh, don't get too excited, I walked it. Still- it felt so good to get out there and do this with baby Eliza. I walked with an amazing group of women, most of which I go to MOPS with and we walked for a cause that's really close to my heart- The Pregnancy Resource Center in our community. Mother's Day weekend was the perfect time to walk for LIFE.
Me and my trio. Gosh, I love being their Mom.
I hope your day was extra special.
