Looking back: My very first Mother’s Day

I’ll always remember my first Mother’s Day. It was the spring of 2004 — and I was five months pregnant. Though I hadn’t held my sweet baby in my arms yet, I was growing him inside. I was taking good care of him before I even laid eyes on him….with rest, healthy food, and all of those other “rules” moms are supposed to follow during those nine months.

I got dressed up for church, complete with a flower corsage in honor of my own mom, like I’d always worn growing up. When I got home, my sweet husband had a surprise for me.

Laying on my pillow was a white card with this simple word written on it: “Mommy.”

Just seeing that written? Words can’t express the joy and pride I felt. I opened the envelope to find a card that our son (via the pen of my creative husband) “wrote” to me on my first Mother’s Day. It told how he already loved me and knew that I loved him. It wished me a very special day….but the truth is, it was that sweet card that made the day truly special to me.
