Mother’s Day warmed my heart. In the morning, soon after waking, I was told by my husband to go and check the baby’s bassinet for “something.” I found a homemade card lying there which had been colored and read “Happy Mother Day” in childlike handwriting. Upon opening the card, I found a childlike message written on the inside from our little babe in the womb which brought me to tears. I was so moved, and my husband proved to be the most sweet and thoughtful man in the world (yet again). Even though I do not feel like a mother quite yet, that gesture alone brought me a lot closer to feeling like I am.
The day wasn’t just about me though - it was about the other moms in my life too. My husband and I hosted his parents for a pancake breakfast, I was able to call and talk with my mom about motherhood, and at mass that evening a special blessing was said over all mothers (and those expecting). I also thought of Mary, our Heavenly mother, and how it was her day too. She has been of great support and comfort throughout my pregnancy as I have been wearing her Miraculous Medal around my neck for some time now. It’s great to have her guidance.
My husband and I have recently found great entertainment in watching the baby move in my stomach. We wonder what’s going on in there! It’s so funny to watch and at the same time a little creepy :) As of today, there’s between 7-10 weeks left (if not a little more - or less) until the baby comes! Ahh! So crazy to think that we are at this point already. My pregnancy has been going so fast, and thankfully it has been pretty easy, so I’m sure that contributes to the fact that I haven’t noticed how quick it has been going.
