Mother's Day 2022

Magnolia is five years old, but this was my sixth Mother's Day. I looked back at all the years past and got incredibly sentimental. It was Mother's Day 2016 that we were just a few days shy of our IVF transfer. I'll say it a million times, but I will never ever forget that one. It was the year we had one single frozen embryo waiting for us. Only God knew what our life would soon look like. My heart ached for a child and all my thoughts revolved around a baby. FAITH OVER FEAR was/is the motto of our life. Mother's Day is always such a bittersweet day for me because I know there are so many women suffering for many different reasons, many of them longing for the gift of a child. For all those women I hope you feel comfort and peace each day knowing that God's plan for you will turn the darkness to light. 

This year we spent Saturday picking out new rose bushes and few annuals to add to our yard. We planted wildflower seeds in our garden and they are already sprouting! We had a quick Mexican lunch and then spent as much time in the sun as we could. Sunday, Magnolia and I went to lunch with my mom, sisters, and all the babes. Ice cream for dessert plus play time outside with tons of people around us was the end of a happy weekend. And I mention all the people because before 2020 I took for granted how much I enjoyed being in a crowd and all the glorious energy of strangers having fun. I hope we never have to experience a lockdown again. 

And of course we snapped lots of photos! 

I hope your Mother's Day was a blessed one.
