Mother's Day Surprises
I know that I already feel like a mother. My entire life has changed because of this sweet little angel that I have not met yet. I have not spent all night trying to calm her(him) down or been pooped or spit up on, but I feel like a mother just the same. No matter what happens, I am forever changed by Baby. I didn't expect anyone else to think of me as a mother yet, though. I was super surprised and delighted to find a sweet mother's day card for me in Friday's mail. It was from my in laws and was specific for a mother-to-be. I was just so pleased and thankful to get it. Then, just a little later that day, I received a gorgeous bouquet of roses from my own sweet mama. They are so beautiful. I LOVE roses, cliche as they may be. If you have been reading this blog for any amount of time, you know how close I am to my mom. I am also super close to my grandmother, my mom's mom. My dad's mom died when I was about 3 1/2. I am surrounded by lots of great mothers all the time and I hope so much that I can be half as good at it as they are. I'm glad to get the chance. Happy mother's day to all of you mothers (and mothers-to-be) out there.
