Mothering Sunday is always tough. A day of mixed emotions. On one hand I miss my Mum so much. On the other hand I am super grateful for the two lovely children that I have. I know so many people who still long to have children and I remember well what the pain of waiting feels like. I am grateful that I now, at least in part, get to experience Mother’s Day as a joyful day rather than a sad day.
Today has been a good day. I had church this morning and sang in worship group which I really enjoyed and then we went out for lunch with my sister and her family, Dad and my cousin Stef and her lovely fiance.
This photo was taken a few weeks ago but I love it. The children gave me a lovely gift of bulbs and a new mug and thermos flask and both had made cards at pre-school and Daddy had also got one. The Little Miss made me laugh a lot though by continually wishing me Happy Birthday. It was very sweet.
