I always knew that I wanted to be a mom. Once we were ready, our path to parenthood wasn't speedy-quick like I hoped it might be. Don't get me wrong, it also was nothing compared to what some friends have gone through. But I learned patience. Mother's Day does have a different meaning to me now. It makes me feel immense gratitude for what we do have, but it also pulls on my heartstrings when I think about friends or acquaintances of mine who have lost their mothers or who yearn to be a mother. I am afraid I am not really articulating this well, but suffice it to say I had a lot of women on my mind yesterday.
Here are some photos we snapped after breakfast yesterday. My very first Mother's Day was most certainly worth the wait!
