Mother's Day 2014

My in-laws were able to come into town for Mother's Day this year and we also had a special visitor all the way from Del Rio! Our good friend Ant came to visit us and meet Baby C this past weekend. It was great to see him and the family and to have some extra hands to help out.

On a side note, what is it about mom's that they are always so selfless and constantly giving of themselves? She drove all the way down on a special weekend meant to celebrate HER and instead spent the whole two days she was here taking care of her family by cooking, cleaning, and even babysitting little C for a few hours so we could get away to the beach. I have never felt so blessed to have such a sweet, kind, caring, and compassionate MIL.

Mother's Day has been a bittersweet day for me over the past three years since my mama went to heaven. This year it was especially hard knowing that she couldn't be here to share in the joy of being both a mother and grandmother to her newest granddaughter and my first little one. That being said I can't emphasis enough how truly blessed I was to be able to call her my mother here on earth even if was for only 22 years. I was lucky to even call her mine for a day in retrospect. As the anniversary of her passing draws close here within the next month I'm constantly reminded how truly selfless she was and how I strive daily to be as much of a blessing in C's life as she was in mine.

I'd also like to send out a HUGE thank you to all my amazing friends that reached out yesterday. I received countless Facebook messages, text messages, and general notes of encouragement from so many of you and it truly meant the world to me. I'm so lucky to have so many people willing to love on me and to remember me on what they know was a challenging day, although it is a time of celebration for most.

Happy Peanut!

Love my family!
