I received my first mother's day card ever on today and it brought tears to my eyes. For so many years I never thought I'd get the joy of celebrating Mother's Day I've always hated the holiday and usually just hid away from the public eye on that day wishing I could just sleep through it thinking about my friends that had kids and loving and hating them all in the same breath. I never understood why God chose to bless so many people around me and just, I don't know forgot about me. I still don't understand why the years of pain were necessary, but I am so amazingly glad those years are over. Words cannot express the joy Matt and I feel inside about all the amazing changes to come in the next several weeks. Yeah for Mother's Day it's no longer the worst holiday in the world!

And on that note, I want to wish all my beautiful friends who are wonderful moms and amazing moms-to-be a wonderful and joy filled Mother's Day. I love you guys!

P.S. Sunday I'm getting to escape briefly for a lunch with my brother and his wife and my parents and I'm going to have my dad take some pictures of me an my pregnant belly if by some random miracle one of them turns out good I'll be shocking you all with the first and only full prego shot of Rachel, so be sure to check back Monday!
