happy day

happy and thankful and overwhelmed that God would give me these gifts...
to squeeze...

and make them giggle...

and adore...

and kiss...

and kiss some more...

 and cherish, protect, pray for, rejoice over, and LOVE the best way I know how.

and oh how I pray that next year there is one more laughing in my lap...

happy mother's day to all of you mamas out there.  and special prayers for those who long to be mothers and who have lost their mothers.

I miss my mama a ton today, but thankfully I was able to talk to her on the phone and tell her how much I love her.  and...she is coming to see us in one week!  I am so thankful for her example of mothering to me.  for all of the hours she spent rocking me to sleep.  for her patience.  and for how much she has oozed with love for me since she knew I was growing inside of her.
here she is...snuggling her 4th born daughter...me.

and now I'm off to do more snuggling.
