I am a thankful Mom this Mother's Day. Thankful for this rare morning, when I woke up before my husband and there was enough daylight filtering through our windows that I could discern the features of his strong face just in front of mine. Thankful that God made that face just. for. me.
Thankful for the little heart who thanks God each night for the specific beauties she finds in His creation.
Thankful that she picked and arranged these flowers, all by herself, just for me.
Thankful for the squinty wet face who interrupted my shower to give me kiss.
Thankful for the soggy cheerios, cold omelet, and half-eaten banana that I scraped into the trash after some little mouths were "All done, Mommy."
Thankful for the strand of pearls hanging around my neck that once belonged to my Mom. Thankful that I'll sit in the pew this morning and feel her just a few inches above my heart.
Thankful for the husband who has planned a romantic date for us tonight, that I know is the well-spring of this thankful Mother's heart this morning.
I pray you're feeling thankful this Mother's Day too.
