A Beautiful Day

Today was a beautiful day to be a mom.

I realize that some of you reading this have lost your mom or would like to be a mom and that has not happened in your life yet. For you, I send my love.

I walked through many years of infertility when I was younger and am so thankful that God chose adoption for our lives. We have two wonderful boys and I am so grateful to have been able to spend today with them.

Though our boys are adults (28 & 24) we are blessed that they have chosen to attend the same church as my husband and I so we were able to see them early this morning.

After church Andrew, his wife Melissa and their daughter Kori (and of course soon-to-be baby Katie) came over for lunch and a little pool time. They decided to stay and have dinner also. My tummy is way too full!!

Melissa has such a cute little 20 week tummy:)

Though we miss Cindy, Joe, Adrianna and Emaly we were certainly grateful to have this small family picture out by the pool. No editing (sorry Gretchen) - just SOOC with too much sun shining but a happy family picture none the less.

A day of relaxing and enjoying the company of special people in my life.

No flowers, no presents, just the presence of the Lord and family:)
Could not have been a better day.

Thursday I will get to spend the entire day with my mom and I am looking forward to that!!!

Until next time ~~ Happy Mother's Day to All.

Considering It All Joy,
