My 2nd Mother's Day

Sunday was my second Mother's Day. It ended up being a much better day than I thought it would be.

This is what I woke up to on Sunday morning.

How Buddy managed to pull this off with his crazy schedule these days means more to me than anything. I had resigned myself to the fact that if he simply remembered a card (homemade or bought) that I would be grateful. Instead, I got 24 red roses, a new study Bible, AND a homemade card!

We worked together to make breakfast. We had coffee, cheese grits, and something new that I have nicknamed "mock-elet". It was scrambled eggs with chunks of ham scrambled in, and cheddar cheese sprinkled on top. It tasted like an omelet, yet it was easier to make....get it....mock-elet! Very tasty. If only I had taken a picture.

Later on I went to church for Baby Dedication. My friend Alycia was dedicating both of her boys, and I wanted to be there, so I went to late service instead of early service. The message was very inspiring...encouraging mothers (as well as anyone who has contact with a child) to pass on our faith to the future generations, and to let our lives show Christ to our children.

The afternoon held a snuggly nap for me and my son! That was so special, because I know a time will come when he will no longer nap, much less in my arms. And while I held him, a memory came to mind of 16 months earlier, when we enjoyed an equally snuggly moment.
Thank you, Lord, that I get to be the mother of this adorable, precious child. He has only been a part of my life for such a short time, and yet I can barely remember what life was like before he was in it. You have given this child to me, to nurture and to take care of. Help me, Lord, to be the best mother I can be. Help Quinn to see You in the things that I do. Thank you, Lord, for this blessing that you brought into my life 16 months ago.

Quinn is so sweet. I think I know someone who thinks he is very special also. Claire just seems to have a real soft spot for him. I think she wants to mother him. He is so sweet, it hard to resist him.
