Happy Mother's Day

When I think of Mother's Day, I of course think of my mom. Thinking of her today was bittersweet. Every day without her is difficult, but days dedicated to her, bring the sting of her absence right back. However, I try to remain hopeful and positive that she is looking down from heaven, happy to know that her family is healthy and happy...and more importantly, growing.

I also think of Angie and Julie on Mother's Day.

Happy Mother's Day to Julie - the mother of my two nephews, Matthew & Jake. Since the day Matthew was born he has changed all of our lives and brought so much love and laughter to this family. And Jake has been a constant reminder that boys will be boys and we love him for it. I love my nephews so much and am so grateful that Julie brought them into our lives. Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to Angie - the mother of my niece, Sofia. Sofia was a gift to this family when we needed it the most and has been blessing us ever since her surprise arrival two in a half years ago. Her sweet nature and silly personality will always warm my heart and make me laugh. Thank you Angie - Happy Mother's Day

And to my soon to be family...

Jeff - thank you for making me feel so special today and for giving me the confidence I need to take on this endeavour. You made my first Mother's Day very special - I love my new chairs and the card was very precious!

To Baby K - I didn't know I could love someone I have never met. We are so excited to meet you and no matter how much time I think I need, I so excited to be your Mom!

To all of my aunts, cousins, friends...Happy Mother's Day!!!
