Happy Mother's Day

Well, I made it.  After a HUGE breakdown late last night, I have done great today.  No tears, although there was a brief moment I thought there might be at Outback at lunch and later in the day while my family was here.  I hope everyone had a good day too!

We had lunch with Michael's Mamaw and then went to the cemetery where his Mother and Grandmother are buried.  It is always hard for Michael to go there and it puts my situation in perspective for me.  I know it is hard to not be a mother when you want to be, but at least I have my Mom and Nana.  I know they are watching us and are so proud of Michael.  

We had my parents and Nana over for dinner.  Michael grilled potatoes, chicken, and veggies.  I want to thank my mom and Nana for everything they have done for me and for being the very best there is.  I love you both more than anything and I am so blessed to have you both.  I hope you had a great day and enjoyed your dinner at our house.  Hopefully next year we'll have a cute little baby to love as well!

I hope all of you celebrating Mother's Day for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 10th, etc time had a FABULOUS day!  I love you all and you've all taught me so much about how to be a great mom one day!

I wanted to leave this week's Mother's Day for the Hopeful with this scripture that is my theme and a song that I feel goes with it.  

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a HOPE and a FUTURE.” Jeremiah 29:11
