Happy belated Mother’s Day to all you mamas out there, including my own wonderful Mom! I had a great first Mother’s Day with MacKenna and both sets of parents + siblings. Matt made the day special with flowers and the promise of a triple D date (Dewey’s, drinks, and dessert) and MacKenna gave me a beautiful mom heart necklace that I will be wearing everyday!
This day meant so much more to me than those wonderful gifts though. Seven months ago I received the greatest gift I could ever ask for. I am so truly blessed to have such an amazing little girl in my life!
These past almost 7 months have been filled with tears + laughter, anxiety + joy, fear + happiness. It’s by far been the hardest 7 months of my life. But all the worrying, stress, and fear has been completely worth it.
Our priest on Sunday talked about the love of a mother and compared it to Jesus love. Jesus died for our sins – for you and for me. The only other time we ever experience that love is from our mothers, and now that I am one, I know it is true. I would do anything to keep my daughter (and husband) from feeling any sort of hurt or pain. She is my world and I can’t imagine my life without her.
MacKenna, you have made my life worth living. I love you with every ounce of my being. Thank you for making me a mom.
