Included

Mother’s Day was busy for us, with two large family gatherings. At the earlier event, with Handsome’s family, my sister-in-law made me a corsage, too. In fact, every woman at the table (young and old, mother or not) wore flowers. It was one of the kindest gestures I’ve ever experienced.

I don’t quite know how to express how I felt that afternoon. Grateful, loved, humbled, and something else I can’t describe.

The women in my life, the mothers and sisters and friends, are amazing blessings to me. They are each generous, wise, and kind, every single one. And I am blessed to be counted in their number, and blessed that I can share in a little mothering joy.

Thanks Deanna. Love you.
