Happy Mother's Day

What a special day today has been.

Thanks to my sweet husband:

I got to SLEEP IN!  For the first time in months.  As my friend Kelly always says...It was "MAGICAL"!

I didn't have to cook...went to my favorite tex mex place (Salsaritas) and then spent some time at the park.  It was a beautiful day to be out!

Got to take a nap--that never happens any more!

What a blessing it is to be a mom.  Levi has blessed my life in more ways than his tiny little mind can even begin to imagine.  And I'm so thankful for the opportunity to love him and be his mommy.  But as much as  I love and care for him, I am reminded that Jesus loves him even more than I do.  And THE BEST thing I can do for him is to trust him to the ONE who created him and knows/loves him more than I ever can!

We prayed for a LONG time for Levi...I'm so grateful to the Lord for answering our prayers and entrusting him to us.

While today is filled with lots of love and sweet memories, I am also reminded of all those who are hurting today.  So many mothers who have lost their precious many mothers who long to be mothers and feel overwhelmed with the unknown in the midst of many who have lost mothers.  My heart is heavy for all the pain of those who are suffering on this day.  I pray for peace in the midst of pain.  I pray that the Lord would open doors for me to encourage those walking in  loneliness and stand in the gap for those who have lost hope and faith.

Thankful that this world is not our home...That one day the Lord will wipe every tear from our eyes and that we will get to see our precious babies and loved ones one day very soon!
