It was bittersweet this year. I was excited to celebrate with my beautiful mom and the sweet littles that made me a mama, but at the same time, was missing my grandma like crazy. I broke down while shopping for cards when I realized that for the first time I wouldn't be picking one out for her. When my mom texted me to tell me the very same thing had happened to her, I realized this grief thing is full of ups and downs at the most unexpected times. But we press on knowing she must have had a beautiful first mother's day in heaven. Oh what joy that must be!
I know Mother's Day is a tough day for so many and my heart aches for you. I hope you felt the prayers of so many lifted up for you today.
We started our day by going to Mass together and then Noonie and I were treated to a delicious picnic by Lance and Papa J. Our 4th annual Mother's Day Picnic - love this little tradition!
My dear mom ~ the most beautiful woman, inside and out.
