Our theme this month was "motherhood", which was very appropriate given the lovely holiday that falls on the second Sunday of the month :) With a rambunctious, determined, bright, and silly 3 1/2-year-old and a growing baby in my belly, blessings are abundant in my life. Being a mom is the best thing ever and my heart just bursts with love during moments like this! On a sadder note, I also find this month to be a time of grief since my own mother passed away nearly a year ago now, and it was my first mother's day without her. I've been thinking about what I was doing at this time last year, oblivious that her sudden passing was around the corner. I miss her terribly. However, I am blessed to have many fond memories, and know that God had other plans for her. Goodbye is only temporary.
Allison McSorley is next in the circle, and I can't wait to see what she came up with!
