So one day when it was freezing cold outside last week, they said we were supposed to have snow yesterday but thank God we didn't, I got a wild hair and thought I'd try to get Phoebe to model her hats for me...I'll have to post how many shots it took to get the last one but that'll have to be later...
Anyway, take your vote and let me know which is your favorite. I think that maybe I like the hats more than Phoebe does but she is a good sport and generally wears them for me. She is such a sweet baby when she isn't vocalizing her dismay at things!
On the more serious side however, I've been thinking about Mother's Day. It took me 43 years to realize my dream of motherhood. Of course the first 3 didn't really count but 40 is alot of years. It made me think of all the women who have longed to be a mother for a very long time and either because of infertility, miscarriage, wanting to be married, or because they are stuck in the process of adopting, it still hasn't happened. This makes Mother's Day very, very painful, and very, very, lonely. As I look forward to celebrating my first real Mother's day- I can't really count last year even though I knew about Michael but he wasn't legally ours, and anything could have happened to prevent that-I want to say to those waiting who have visited my blog that I remember you, think of you, and pray for you! My heart has felt many of the emotions that you are feeling this week, and also more. I lost my biological Mom 8 years ago now and that along with the pain of being without a child in my arms was some of the most painful & solitary times of my life. I weep with you and anticipate with you. I trust in a God who knows what's best for you and that is the hope that kept me going during those days. May you be blessed with a lovely day, celebrating all the things you have in your life, and do not be discouraged, though the tears may flow at night, joy does come in the morning, however long it takes that morning to get there. May your cup be half full, and may you wear a smile on your face that day which beams with thankfulness that you have had a Mom to love you! Happy Mother's Day to you!!
