Mother's Day

I hope everyone had an awesome Mother's Day!!  I sure did!  But that hasn't always been the case!  

Before we adopted Josiah I dreaded that day.  I remember one Mother's Day we headed to church and they were handing out flowers to all the moms.  I wanted a flower....but I turned it down when the man handed me one.  I don't even like flowers...why was I upset???  I was upset because we couldn't have kids and we had just started the adoption process and I had no clue when or if we would ever have a sweet baby to love on!!  So today Mother's Day is a little bittersweet for me!  I am so excited that I am a mommy now but I hurt for all those women that are longing to be one and they haven't yet been able to experience a good Mother's Day!  So I pray for them and want them to know their time will come.  God's timing is always perfect even if it seems as though you will never get what you want.  He always has something better in store for you than what you have planned for yourself!!!
