Happy Mother's Day


Joe bought me this little plaque from his night job as a Mother's Day present.
We had agreed(yet again) that there would be no presents, so this was a complete surprise to me. Very sweet.
(Cell phone pic. Kinda Crummy)

The other night, after reading my last blog post he turned to me and said

"That is one of my favorite pictures of you. You're right about things being easier back then but that was before we knew about Sophie. I wouldn't trade anything in the world to go back to the time before we found out about her".

He always has a way of putting things into perspective doesn't he?

I hope everyone has a wonderful Mother's Day. I really do mean that. Despite my obvious lack of enthusiasm. :)

Some day I will celebrate this day.

Some day.

Today DeAnn and I are off to drown our Mother's Day sorrows(she lost her Mom too, when she was just 18) in some home made tamales and ***(hopefully)*** a little bargain shopping in the Fashion District of Downtown L.A.

Enjoy your day!

****That is if I can walk. I injured my back last weekend doing a remodel on my Dad's bathroom and I have been hobbling around since Thursday. I am feeling better this morning so our shopping trip is still on.*******

I miss you Mom

Hope the hurt of the loss of your mom continues to ease and that Sophie gets closer and closer!

I hope you enjoy your day, I'm standing in the gap for all of us waiting and I hearby declare you are every bit a Mom as the rest of us. Celebrate that in the face of the wait. Bless you.

Ps. I couldn't link to your blog via your profile on my comment box....did you shut it off?

Hope your back is better soon.

I hope you had a fun day shopping and your back was feeling better.
This was an emotional day for all of us waiting moms. We all will get to enjoy this day soon.

Smiles! :o)
