Mother's Day 2015

I know what you are thinking - two blog posts within a week?!  I know, I know - miracles do happen folks.

There are but a few pictures to share with you today, but a special time to remember.

My Mom was able to be here for Mother's Day this year and it was great!  We have not spent Mother's Day together in several years. She came into town on Friday and stayed until the following Wednesday.  We had a lot of fun while she was here.

On Saturday, John took care of Parker so my Mom and I could spend the day together shopping and eating lunch.  We were able to go to some of our favorite stores, use a lot of our coupons and do lots of talking and catching up.  
She also came to church with us on Sunday.  This is the first time she's been to our church so it was neat to share where we worship each Sunday morning. 
(I apologize for the quality of some of these pictures.  It was rainy and yucky so we didn't have the best lighting) 

This was my fourth Mother's Day to enjoy.  I look forward to this day each year - a day I deeply prayed I would one day celebrate as a Mom.  God heard our prayer and blessed us with Parker in His perfect timing.

A look back ~ Mother's Day 2012 (my first and the day we dedicated Parker at church). Parker was a wee baby - a couple of weeks shy of three months old.

Mother's Day 2014 (we had moved into our new home about a month and half before this).  
And this year - my wee baby boy is now 3 years old.  

Motherhood has taught me a great many things about myself and life in general.  It has changed me and has been one of my greatest blessings in life. It brings me so much joy, but it has it's challenges as well.  All of it is so rewarding and fulfilling and each day is a new adventure.  I adore this precious boy and I treasure being his mother.    
Three generations ~ Mamaw, Mommy and Parker Boy.  
My sweet family of three.  I say it many times, but I sure do love doing life with these two handsome boys. Our life and my heart is full to the brim.  
We don't get too many pictures of the two of us so I like to take advantage of opportunities (i.e. someone else to take one of us).  I'm the Mommy I am because he's the Daddy that he is.  I'm glad to be on this journey through parenthood hand in hand.    

Thanks for coming to visit us Mom!  It was great having you here and celebrating Mother's Day together.

Until we meet again...
Riley
