Mother's Day

Today has a new meaning for me. Every year while waiting for our beautiful daughter I dreaded this day. Because when you are trying so hard just to become a mother and you can't, the day when mothers are celebrated is a very sad day for you. But this year, it's a beautiful day! My daughter is the light of my life. She is amazing in every way. This long journey I have been on for the last how ever many years is over, and now we are on a new journey. The journey of motherhood. It's so beautiful. More so than I ever imagined. I never in my wildest dreams thought it would be this wonderful. I love being a mother, especially to this wonderful little girl.
(The MOM craft was made at Mia's day care. So cute!!)

To all the mothers-in-waiting out there.... hold strong to your dreams. Don't let the long wait let you give up on your dreams. You too will reach your journey's end and when you do... it will be amazing! Today I pray for all of you, that you may have the strength to carry on toward your dream, the faith to know that someday it will happen, the knowledge that now is not forever, and the courage to walk each step of the journey. Keep smiling and grab this >>HUG<<>
