Thoughts on Mother's Day 2017

Yesterday was Mother's Day, and I spent the entire day celebrating and relishing in the sweet baby boy that gave me a reason to celebrate. Being a mom is the joy of my life, and I am so grateful to be on the journey. Mother's Day is always a reminder of the little girl who made me a mom. I always wish I could hug her a little more on Mother's Day. Taylor Grace will always be the one who made me a mom in my eyes, but baby Preston is the one who made all my dreams come true. Getting to be his mama here on earth is the sweetest gift!

I think Mother's Day is hard for as many people as it is joyous. Whether you've lost your mom, lost a baby, or struggled with infertility, it's a hard day for many. For anyone that fits into that category, you were on my heart and mind yesterday, and you were in my prayers. Mother's Day was a hard day for me last year and the year before. It was a happy day to celebrate my amazing mother, but it was also a day to remind me that I didn't yet have any babies here on earth. 

This year, I am thankful for God's provision. A year ago today, we had no idea that baby Preston would arrive 10 months later. We had no idea just how greatly God would be blessing us in 2017.
