Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Happy belated Mother’s Day! I remember last year celebrating for my Mom and this year I am celebrating alongside her and my Mother-in-law. My goodness how much a year can change!
When I put myself in the category as a Mom I am baffled by how much significance your title is when you become one. How intense your love can be, how frustrating your patience can be due to not being aware of what they need at the moment and time, how permanent your intuition becomes when you see your child cry due to needing to be fed, or how tired they can be. Also, how you fully will yourself on being able to stay up during sleepless nights.
I am so blessed to be surrounded by amazing mothers who teach me to be humble, caring, supportive and concerned.
I am so blessed to be genuinely proud of sharing photographs of my child with those in my family, friends and coworkers.
Most importantly… God, in His rich mercy, blessed me (and my husband) with a child who He also calls “my Beloved”
Sunday, May 13th was a beautiful day where I went to church with my Mom, received a simple yet beautiful flower (pictured above), ate at Jimmy John’s, had a short visit at a little market in town, came home to relax, made this delicious dish, baked cookies and then I went to bed.
I did spoil myself and bought this dress for an upcoming family photoshoot. 🙂
I have seen, though, multiple commercials (via television and radio) boasting about “what to get for mom” and I have a few things on my list on what I desire, but in the end: my arms are opened so wide, my heart is so full knowing I’m a wife + mother and that is enough. I am in love with simple and raw moments filled with memories of laughter, hugging, and gathering together.
Praying your Mother’s Day weekend went well, and for a wonderful rest of the week!
