My first Mother's Day

I have to say that I have had a wonderful first Mother's day! We got up and went to Mass at 8:00. My grandparents usually go to church at that time so all their children who live here decided to go this morning at that time and surprise them and then take them out for breakfast afterwards. Not only is today Mother's day but my grandpa's birthday is tomorrow. We had a fun time at breakfast and got home around the time we would generally be going to church. It has been somewhat nice to have a large portion of the day free to spend time with my sweet girl and husband. I received a beautiful new necklace this morning as well as some flowers.

I feel so very blessed to be able to celebrate this day. Ava is my pride and joy and each day with her is so special. Each day is a new experience and just when I think I can't possibly love her more, she shows me I am wrong! She is at such a fun age right now and I know it can only get better!

Sometimes I feel guilty for having to work and send her to daycare. I know it doesn't make me any less of a mother but I still wish circumstances were different. However, I have seen that it is a good thing for her to be there. She thrives on the social interaction and loves going each day. And on holidays like Mother's day, they take the time to do something special for the mommies and having these types of things are so very precious to me. This is what my sweet daughter "made" me this year:

Happy Mother's Day to all mothers!
