Words cannot express my gratitude to the Lord for allowing me to be a mommy. I adore this little girl and everything that goes along with her. It is an honor to watch her grow and learn and love. She makes me laugh every single day. She is a gift. She is sunshine.
And listen, let me say this. Those of you that so desperately want to be mamas but for some reason known only to the Lord you are not..... don't think for one minute that I didn't think about you all day. I cried for you this morning in church. I cried for you when I rocked Ellie to sleep tonight. I don't know why it's easier for some of us than for others. I don't know. I really don't. And I question it often. I ask Him why. I pray tonight that your heart will find peace, that it will be full, that you would feel His love, and that you have a picture just like this next year.
Happy Mother's Day.
