It’s these ones who have made me a mommaand every day I feel grateful.I couldn’t imagine life without this sort of joy.In the smallest ways they continually shape me into being a more gentle, patient, and generous person (I am aware of the potential to be incredibly selfish) and for those gifts I am grateful.They sure did make me feel special today.I love handmade anything and Paul’s kindergarten teacher comes up with awesome projects.This plant is beautiful and was a group effortWhile this was a papa effort and makes me smileeven the details on the wrapping paper I adoreas I opened the gifts in bed I spent time reading through Paul’s class cookbook (a sweet idea) and their narrated recipes made me laugh aloud. I really can’t believe my oldest boy is almost done with kindergarten.The pace of mommahood is bittersweet. It makes my eyes water and my chest tighten because I can’t stop it or hold on tight enough. I will just take it all in as best I know how, stopping to savor moments at a time.
Happy Momma’s Day to you!
