Just wanted to write a quick post to wish all of the other mommas out there a happy mother’s day!
I also know this can be a tough day for some – so for those who are longing to be mother’s or who have lost their own mother, know that I’m praying for you and hope that you find peace today.
Before I had Hadley, I used to think I knew how much my mom loved me. Boy, was I off. There are no words for the type of love that I have for Hadley, and now I know how much my mom loves me, and how much infinitely greater God’s love is for us. Amazing!
I have had a wonderful first mother’s day so far! I woke up to this text message from Matt…
“Happy Mommy’s Day! Come get your present!”
(well actually it said “happy mummy’s day” thanks to the iPhone auto-correct. Sorry about the quality of the pic – Hadley had just woken up [note the sleep sack], so Matt didn’t want to turn all the lights on in her room.)
After feeding and snuggling with my baby girl for a bit, I opened my present and found this…
The stone is a garnet, for Hadley’s birthstone, and the big heart says love and has a tiny little diamond (which is my birthstone), and the “h” is obviously for Hadley. I absolutely LOVE it and will probably wear it every day!
After that, we went out to brunch and stuffed ourselves on pancakes, and then went for a Sunday afternoon drive and a sonic drink. When we got home, we put Hadley down for a nap, and I decided to join her! I’m feeling pretty spoiled, and I can’t think of a better way to spend a day!
The cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow,
for children grow up, as I’ve learned to my sorrow.
So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust go to sleep.
I’m rocking my baby and babies don’t keep.
