"This is the day that the Lord hath made, let us rejoice!"
I have been playing and replaying this over and over in my head today. I may not be close to my Mama for Mother's Day, but after we talked this morning, I felt like I was right there beside her. I am so grateful that I got to share some time with her over the phone. And thank you for all the prayers, she is doing much better.
(My Great Uncle had surgery the same day as my Mama, and he is doing very well, too.)
Lately, I stand back with grateful admiration, even with the little things. The cabinets full of food. The cool air running through the house. The clean bill of health Molly received from the vet. The sag of my husband's side of the bed, knowing I am blessed to have him home safe with me. The bills that we were able to pay for another month. The garden that is showing signs of promise for a bountiful harvest in the next couple of months.
And, lastly, quietly celebrating the fact that I am a Mommy, it's just that our little one went to Heaven ahead of us. And come that day, when we meet again, it will be an amazing day.
So on this day, celebrate the big things, the little things, and all the things in between.
