Mother’s Day is special to me – not only because I have an amazing mom, but because at one point I wasn’t sure I would ever get to celebrate it as a mother. My first Mother’s Day was spent heartbroken, because only 2 short weeks before, I had lost my first pregnancy. My husband sweetly reminded me that I WAS still, in fact, a mommy. His reassurance gave me reason to rejoice. And then, a few years later I gave birth to my son!
I try to never take that precious gift for granted. Whether we make the actual holiday a big ordeal or not, I will always be so very thankful for the opportunity to celebrate Mother’s Day
