My very first Mothers day. A simple one.
A day where I could spend the day with my boys. A day where we can lounge, tickle, sing, cuddle,snuggle, nap and eat. Oh the eating is one of my favorites.
Marshall made me my favorite food in the whole world.
I would drink them from a straw if I could. I would pour the instant potatoes in my mouth, then drink a tall glass of water, shake my head and swallow whole if I could. I love my Man. And I love my man for making me some mashed potatoes for my special day.
We also went out on a hot date Friday, I ordered salmon,he ordered steak. and... Ezra ordered, well, you know. Milk. and maybe a small side of sweet potatoes.
Not only has being a mother changed my life in countless ways, but I try to remember my life before baby, and it is foggy.
Almost as though it never happened, a memory, or a dream.
My uterus must have ached for a tenant.
My arms must have been empty and my heart must have only beat half as well as it does now.
I cannot imagine my life without my little family.
Being a mother to Ezra has been such an amazing experience and I cannot wait to continue my journey as a mother to more little spirits.
I imagine my other babies waiting in the clouds for Marshall and I to send them down one by one.
I imagine their personalities, all different and perfect in their own unique way. I imagine their smiles similar to eachothers but smiling for different reasons than the next. I imagine their tiny hands holding one anothers as they watch us from above. I'm sure they wonder when their time will come.
I also imagine Heavenly Father keeps all of our children in a special place, a place where they are allowed to choose when and how they will arrive to us. I am sure Heavenly Father explains to each of our children what their lives will be like and what they may go through. I also believe that my Heavenly Father gives my babies a choice whether or not they are ready for their bodies and of course ready to meet me, their mother and Marshall, their adoring father,who have planned for a family since the day they married at the altar.
I love being a mother, I love that I will be a mother to more. and I love to imagine mothering more.
Happy Mothers Day.
