Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to everyone! I looked at my post from last year on this day, and I didn't really write much about myself. I wrote about my own mom. I do think it is interesting to look back a year ago from holidays and think about what was going on in life at that time and how much has changed. Well this year has definately been the biggest one for changes for me. At one time I know I would have looked upon the changes in the last year with great depression and sadness. While there is still sadness, there is also so much good. I look at my life one year ago and I know I am blessed to be where I am at this year. I am truly a different person, a better person, a more spiritual person. I still have GREAT sadness for my children, but I know that in time that too will heal, and that God can make every wrong- right for them. And I have to hope and believe in that.

We went to church today, and then for my mother's day present from my mom she took the kids to the circus today, and the treat for me was that I didn't have to go! I got a quiet afternoon alone! I know the point is to be with your mother, but in this case...a break is what I wanted! This evening we're going to Colt and Suzanne's house to cook out and let the kids play out in the water. I'm going to take my camera, so I'll post some pictures later.

Well I truly hope that everyone had a good day. And I hope you are all blessed to have a wonderful mother. I know I am!

Happy Mother's Day to you too! I am (blessed) and wish I could have been with mine! I have been saying to her frequently on the phone, "I need my mommy!", while in the background she hears Ty screaming it at me! I kept tyring to convince her that if she were here it would solve all of our problems!

Larissa, Your strength is just amazing. Sometimes it can be scary to think of all the changes that can happen in a year but thankfully we know that no matter what God will see us through.

I have seen you grown in your walk just since I found your blog a few months ago.

I pray you had a blessed Mother's Day...you deserve it my friend.

Hugs, Lyndy
