Mother's Day

I know that the day is almost over and that it may seem pointless to be writing this post now, but I've thought about it all day and I figure better late than never.

Things are a little crazy around our place right now, but as much as I wish I knew what is next or what is going to happen, every time I look or think about Lila my heart fills with joy. She brings me peace that I could never have imagined before. I'm so grateful for that little girl and I know that she means more to me than I might ever be to her. I can't believe that I was blessed to be her mother and I'm so thankful that my Father in Heaven sent her to me. Sometimes it's a scary thought, but I'm excited for the journey. As a little gift to me she took 9 steps in a row and is really starting to show interest in walking. (She hadn't done much since her few steps at 10 months.) When she falls she doesn't go immediately to crawling, but instead gets back up and takes more steps. I'm so proud of her. Anytime now... I think!

I've only been a mother for 11 short months, but I can honestly say that each and every day I gain a huge appreciation and new respect for my own wonderful mother. I can't believe the sacrifices that she made and continues to make, and I understand that I don't even know the half of it. She's been an amazing friend, teacher, confidant, cheerleader, disciplinarian, coach, and guide.

So with that, I want you to know, Mum, that I love you and want to thank you for your strength and love. I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!
