{mother's day}

 "He settles the barren woman in her home as a happy mother of children. Praise the LORD."
Psalm 113:9

Happy Mother's Day...

To you who have aching arms and hearts just waiting to be blessed with little scampering feet...
To you who have said goodbye way too soon to tiny angels and grieve this day... 
To you who have mother's in heaven but none on earth... 
To you who have given your child to another to raise because of your deep love...

God sees every tear and hears every desperate cry. God loves you and wraps his arms around you even when it hurts so bad that all you can feel is the pain and the suffering. You are never alone and never forgotten... today I honor and pray for you.

Lauren, I remember your Mother's Day post from last year (is that creepy?) and this one just made me cry. I am so glad you finally get to be celebrated this Mother's Day! And what encouraging words to women who have struggled with infertility.

I hope you had a great mother's day, Lauren. I'll be excited to hear about it.
I had a dream last night that I saw you, John and Mareto at my wedding. It was great to see you in the dream, but I was also REALLY busy with a bunch of little crises and we didn't really get a chance to catch up.
Would love to catch up in real life and meet Mareto at some point.
