1st Mothers Day

Well I finally got to experience my first Mothers Day. It was surreal, but so wonderful. I still wish I could be holding a newborn because sometimes it still just doesn't feel that real that I'm still pregnant. I'm thankful I was able to wake up and feel joy again. I still thought a lot about how I felt last year and I honestly could not stop thinking about those who have lost mothers, babies or who are still waiting. I know God's plan and timing are perfect, but honestly Holidays exaggerate most emotions and sometimes it can just be plain hard.

When I woke up, I woke up to some really sweet text messages. I was blown away at how many I received wishing me a Happy 1st Mothers Day. I felt so truly blessed by each one and was shocked that people would think of me.Marc really spoiled me. He woke up and went and got me some delicious donuts! I think the baby really loves some donuts! All I know is I scarfed those suckers down fast! Yum. I looove donuts and really always have. Horrible, I know! I'm sure that baby was flipping all around while we were sitting in church. I can't feel Marchelle move yet, but I keep waiting to feel a flutter, I'm definitely paying attention to all twinges right now! It was also great because I actually attended church for the first time in several years on Mothers Day. They always do baby dedications on those mornings and it is just something that I couldn't handle in the past. Just maybe, next year I will be doing that.

I also received some really special cards. Marc made a card and wrote some the sweetest things I think he's ever written to me. He also made me a gift card! He got me 10 hours with one of our friends that is a designer around our area and she has done some incredible design work on nurseries. He came up with this all on his own. I'm so excited! I love decorating, but have the hardest time getting started, so I'm hoping she can help me dream up a fun plan and then I can help execute it! I.can't.wait!

I also just want to say thanks to all of our moms out there who have helped us through the past few years! Not sure where we would be without all the support and prayers. We will forever be thankful.
And to those that are still waiting, I do understand your grief and my prayers go out to you.
Love you all!

So glad you had a great Mother's Day and it warms my heart you still think about those of us who are still waiting. Can't wait for you to have a baby in your arms next year!
