My thrid Mother's Day

(my plants are in full bloom out front!)

Three years ago I proudly wore a MOM pin on my bulging belly.

Last year I did my best to ignore the day.

This year I spent some quaility time with family and friends.

I received a beautiful necklace from a complete stranger in memory of my Sweet baby Joseph.

I received flowers from my husband.

I also received flowers and steak knives (something Ive been wanting) from my dear special friends.

a cleaner close up of the necklace.

The pearl is the June birthstone and JJ stands for Joseph Jacob. :)

Beautiful gifts! And yesterday, I thought of you, and several other friends who have children waiting in Heaven. Praying for you!

What a precious gift.... the necklace. And beautiful flowers too. I was thinking of you too and thanking God for the hope he gives mothers that have said good bye to their little ones that we will see them again one day.
