Thank goodness for Fridays! They are always a sense of relief in this house – making me anxious and excited about the weekend to come! :) I love Fridays and I love the weekends when we can all be a family and enjoy one another for two solid days. This weekend is Mother’s Day and while I’m so thankful to be a mom myself – I remember so vividly the days when I yearned to be a mommy. So today, I sit and I think about all of the moms out there who yearn to be called mom, who desperately pray for a child of their own and who sit and patiently on the Lord to bring them a child of their own (whether through birth, adoption or fostering).
I read this post and couldn’t agree more with it… READ HERE. So while we respect and show our thanks to moms all around us this Sunday – I hope we will also remember to show our respects to those “moms in waiting”. As we all know we longed to become a mother at some point in time. For many, this day can be difficult and hurtful – as they struggled to understand why the Lord has not blessed them. So lets remember to give our thanks and praises to the moms around us – as they are all deserving. But lets also remember to lift up and encourage those still waiting.
And now… here are some quick snapshots of Katherine Grace playing yesterday evening in the yard. What a lil ham she is! Love her and so blessed to be her mommy!
Love my lil snug bug!
Favorite conversation of the week:
Me: “Hey love muffin, whatcha doing?”
Katherine Grace: With all seriousness, “Mommy, I not love muffin, I am Katherine Grace.”
It was much more hilarious in person with her vivacious personality!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend celebrating the MOM in your life! God bless!
Until then… Brantley
