No Card Required...

On this day of many commercialized expectations, I realize that I don't need the flowers or the cards.  I don't need the brunch or an afternoon at the spa.  I don't need to sleep in, have breakfast in bed or my car hand-detailed.  Those things would be nice and even welcomed.  But they're not necessary. 
I wanted to be a mother for decades before these boys came into my life.  I had given up all hope of having children.  Even three years after Henry's birth, there are times I cannot believe that I am a mom.  I have a forever family.  I am thankful for these two little ones and I am grateful to them.  I am grateful for their patience as I learn and for their forgiveness when I make mistakes.  Most of all, I am thankful for their unconditional love.

Happy Mother's Day, Henry and Liam.  Without you, there would be no celebration.  With you, every day is a treat.


  1. Happy Mother's Day to a superb mom!

  2. I know this for sure you were meant to be a mom! I am so glad you have these precious boys!
    You are truly blessed and I am also for having the chance to be in your lives!

  3. What a great sentiment! Happy Mother's Day!

  4. There are times that I look at my little girl and I cannot believe I'm a mom. I say thank you every night for her.

    I mentioned you in my Mothers Day blog post - you were my inspiration :)

  5. That is such a beautiful message.

    Happy Mother's Day!

  6. Happy Mother's Day to all you three! (and by three I don't just mean Henry..)

    A beautiful post!

  7. I just noticed your two sons on these pics look so similar! What a resemblance!
