Mother's Day

What an honor and a privilege to be able to celebrate Mother's Day.  In reading my Bible Study this morning it spoke of a photograph taken by Gertrude Kasebier named "Blessed Art Thou Among Women".  I was not familiar with her so I looked her up and this is the photo.

Blessed Art Though Among Women by Gertrude Kasebier

This got me thinking about my journey to motherhood and how truly blessed that I have the miracle of the two children that I do.  Any one that knows me personally, knows the struggles I had with infertility and how difficult of a time that was.
So when I was actually able to have a child, it was not by mishap but long sought after.  First the miracle of out daughter and then then second blessing of our son by adoption.  As I was unable to conceive successfully after that. 

So my idea was to post some pictures, but that led me to photo albums and never enough time to do what I want.  The day calls me away.  But here are a few to share them with you, as I am still so grateful for the two of them each and every day.
