Mother's Day Weekend

Happy Mother's Day to all moms!  Praying you have a very blessed and special day!
At our house Mother's Day is usually filled with all the routine scramble of a Sunday morning...rushing to have breakfast, combing hair, bushing the little ones' teeth...moms you know what I mean.  There is little time to enjoy breakfast in bed.
At our house we have Mother's Day WEEKEND!  Yup!  You read that right!  The entire weekend is dedicated to me.  And I must admit I feel ever so unworthy...but boy is it fun!
I stayed up WAY too late Friday night munching on chips and watching a movie.  Saturday morning the kids (and Martin) surprised me with breakfast in bed!  The kids hung out with me for a bit and then went downstairs to enjoy their breakfast...and I got to enjoy my strawberries and cream, toast, and hot chocolate all by myself!  I LOVED it!  To top it off I got all the usual handmade, warm my heart gifts from the kids and 2 dozen roses!  :)
I am incredibly grateful and blessed to have 4 kids that call me mom.  My heart is so full!  And yet, there's this empty spot waiting to be filled...can't wait for Jackson to be home, in his mama's arms where he belongs!
At the same time my heart is still heavy for the precious baby boy whom we are not allowed to bring home...praying that by next Mother's Day he will have his forever Mama.
I hurt for my kid's birth mom's and wonder where they are and what they are feeling today...wishing I could tell them how much their children are tell them I will forever remember what they sacrificed, what they that I might have my kids.  I saw this on face book this morning and it completely sums up what I feel..."Children born to another woman call me 'Mom.' The magnitude of that tragedy and the depth of that privilege are not lost on me this weekend."

And I wish I could spend another day with my Mom...
A good, but emotional day...
