Happy Mother’s Day!

May 10, 2015

Happy Mother’s Day!!! My cup overflows!!!

At Mass today, for a brief moment of actual prayer, I was so overcome by the magnitude of the gift of my life. My husband is so unbelievably supportive and active in all aspects of our life and I have FIVE magnificent kids.

I began to pray for them and was instantly struck by the realization that I was wrong….EIGHT magnificent souls entrusted to us as parents. Three of our little ones await us in heaven and surely do more interceding for us than I can even comprehend. WOW!!! A mom of EIGHT. My Grandmother was a mom of 8. (Oh how I miss her. As an adult, there’s so much I’d like to talk to her about. My perspective is so different now than when I was a kid. HA! I love you Friend Grano!) My mother was #2 of those eight. Golly. God is good. I’m so thankful to have my momma here in Atlanta and even more so in my home. Here’s your shout out mom as we were lame and didn’t get a picture together today. Dang broken camera! Love you tons!!!

We went adventuring today…something that’s hard to do on my own with the three littles. Seriously FUN!!! Nate said it perfectly, “Why didn’t we do more of this exploring when we didn’t have children? Oh yes. There was no internet and social media to share fun facts.” Crazy, right?! (We are coming up on 15 years together!)

We made it to the Edge of the World on the Amicalola River.

Max got to dip in his feet…one time only! The girls got seriously muddy and the big kids got to walk in the rapids and climb big rocks. I only fell in once, but managed to keep Max upright and dry…twice actually! Nate was fully submerged with the big kids, and Papa, thanks to his long legs and great water sandals, only got a few inches of his shorts wet. What a fun afternoon!

At the end of a very long boardwalk, this awaited us! Truly spectacular!

Where are the Bosters? Can you spot all 5 kids, Nate & Papa also?

Dad was happy to have talked to a few fisherman and even found an old fly. He’s surely dying to get in the water with some waders, his tacklebox, and his trusty fly rod.

Yes indeed. A perfect little reminder left for us by an earlier hiker.

Momma made me this beautiful little charm. I so love the addition of the medal tucked in with my sweet little eggs. I love it!!! Now to find the perfect chain for it.

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers. My heart is with those mommas who have lost a child, their own mother, or who have an eternal bond with a birth mother. May God bless you in a very special way and your children too! Motherhood is a true gift!!! Mother Mary, pray for us!
