But, the months came and went. We did conceive, but our first daughter, did not live long after birth. Years went by. Friends had babies as easy as deciding they wanted a new pair of shoes. When was this going to happen for us?
But, the Lord's timing was not ours....but He did have a plan.
In our 9th year of marriage, I was blessed to be a mom.
I remember that first mother's day. We went to church. They always gave a plant to the oldest mom, mom with most children, youngest mom, newest mom. I didn't fit any of those categories. A friend had her son after mine. So as the last category was read, newest mom....the whole church looked at me and started clapping. My friend was allowing me to have the honor.
I still get emotional, as I am now. That walk to the front of the church to receive that little arrangement felt like I was walking to my coronation.
The Lord blessed us again with our daughter. Fast forward, and now I am also a grandma.
Life is Good!
Happy Mother's Day!
