Happy Mother’s Day 2016

Happy Mother’s Day 2016

Happy Mother’s Day, Sweet Friends! We hope all of you have a very blessed day surrounded by your babies, whether they are BIG or SMALL…. because you know they will always be your babies no matter how old they are!

Today I was beyond blessed because I got to spend the day with my sweet HUSBAND (who’s health is continuing to improve daily… YAY!), and my 4 little JEWELS that God so graciously BLESSED me with. They surprised my with a yummy breakfast, coffee, the new shirt that I am wearing today,  handmade Mother’s Day cards, and flowers picked from our garden!

These particular roses are very sentimental to me, and are my most FAVORITE ones in my garden. They originally came from clippings from my great-grandmother’s rose bush, and they make the most beautiful tiny pink clusters. They only bloom twice a year, and when they do, there are CASCADES of them everywhere. I have such wonderful memories of my great-grandmother, and when I look at these roses, they remind me of the fun times we had together when I was a little girl. Memories that I will cherish forever. <3

If you notice all of the pink roses in the center… that’s the ones! Underneath that mound of roses is a pergola bench. The weight of the roses literally CRUSHED it. Patrick promised to build me a new one as soon as he can…. that’s IF he can. Those thorns can be mighty hard to work with.

And last, but certainly not least, Patrick made these OVERSTUFFED burritos for dinner. Mexican food is one of most favorite cuisines, and these jumbo tortillas definitely made my day! Look at this WHOPPER….

I can only eat about half, but I am in HEAVEN the whole time! ;)

Well, I am off to enjoy the rest of my evening! But before I go, I want to let all of our followers who are having infertility issues know that we are praying for each and every one of you! I know at this time of year, so many mothers who have gone through miscarriages, or the inability to conceive, almost feel as though they are forgotten. And you aren’t! You are a Mamma too! You just have a little longer to wait to hold them again, but they are still your babies. You are NOT forgotten! You are NOT alone! And it is NOT your fault! 

We have so many followers who have privately reached out to us for prayer regarding this, and we want you to know that we are continuing to lift each of you up on a daily basis. God loves you, and He is so FAITHFUL to answer the desires of your hearts… in His TIMING. Place your trust in Him and know that He is working all things together for your good. Even though it may not seem like it right now… He is! Have faith my sweet friends, and Happy Mother’s Day!  We love you!
