Mother’s Day. It’s the notorious day that seemed to elude me for so long. I have always loved it, because I LOVE spoiling my Mom and Gram.
Yet, like it is for so many of you, it has been incredibly bittersweet. Once that positive pregnancy test happens, you change. And when you are no longer pregnant. Sometimes you lose a bit of positivity with it.
But, this year. I got to join the club. I got to wonder what surprises my husband would have for me. He knew how much I’d looked forward to this weekend.
I got cards. From him, the baby, and our pup. And the most precious red balloon. I hear of Mamas getting diamonds. And each of us deserve that. But, I’m just not a jewelry girl. The baby giggles and fancy charcuterie board from my favorite caterer did me just fine.
I won’t begin to claim I am anywhere close to having this mama thing figured out. Don’t really think it is something you ever do master. You just do the best you can with each phase that comes along.
But here is what I have got, on this Mother’s Day…in no particular order.
Happy Mother’s Day to those whose children are here…and aren’t. I see you.
