Friday Favorites {Mother's Day}

Happy Friday!!! 
Wahoo..I'm so excited that it's Friday, but y'all our weekend is so busy. I just have to shake my head. 
Today I want to take a minute to share my favorite favorites, and they just happen to be the reason that I'm a mama!


My handsome first-born! I was so surprised by you, and honestly you have yet to quit surprising me to this day. I love your laugh, your wit, and your kind heart. You, my son, are a beautiful gift that I treasure!


Oh you hilarious middle-child! I just cannot get enough of your perfectly-timed hugs, smiles, and jokes. You keep us laughing, and I think you are also a wonderful gift I can't imagine life without.


Oh my beautiful girl. You are kind, smart, and oh so spunky. You are the best friend that I never knew that I always wanted.

I've shared before that we miscarried on Valentine's Day 2012. 
It's a pain you never get over, and it's so hard to explain to people. I will always wonder what our family would look, sound, & feel like with you, but I trust that God knows exactly what we need. He needed us to meet you later. His ways are higher and greater, and I trust that!

Mother's Day is always bittersweet for me. I am so blessed because getting and staying pregnant wasn't a struggle I personally dealt with, but I saw with so many of my friends and family their struggles. Today is so hard for them. I want them to know that I love them and I'm praying big prayers specifically for them. These women are so much stronger than any of us will ever know, and they are so worthy of praise and adoration on Sunday as I am.

Oh sweet friend. I love you so much, and I admire your beautiful strength!

2Corinthians 12:9 reminds me that He says, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."

Lord, use my weaknesses to magnify Your strength and power. God I pray right now for that precious woman who is struggling. She cannot see Your plan through her pain, but God, You see her. Wrap Your loving, kind arms around her. Lord, may I never take my children for granted because they are precious gifts that I don't deserve. Thank You for the blessed opportunity of being Stephen, Carson, & Nataleigh's mama. Thank You for that precious angel baby that we didn't meet. Your plans and ways are far better than the plans we make. May You be glorified and honored this weekend.

  1. I love this post! We struggled to get pregnant for one year and it was the longest year of my life but I knew God was in control. It is so hard to watch others go through this pain but I just pray that God will continue to work in their lives and help them thorough that time. I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day!

  2. Such sweet treasures and yes I would never wish the pain of miscarriage or struggling to get pregnant on anyone but God used that time mightily in my life! Xoxo Erin

    1. I've learned so much more from the disappointments in my life than the highs! God is still God, and He is still good!
