Happy Mothers Day Jessica ♥

I've always had such an emotional response to Mothers Day. I have had many many years of sweet Mothers Days. As this one draws near I have been thinking a lot about my daughter Jessica and her little girl, Ava. This will be the second Mothers Day that she's celebrated with her little one. This has really touched my heart. A few years ago, I wondered to myself how would I ever share with her all of those intangible things that are nearly indescribable about motherhood? How can I speak justice to that lift that her heart will experience when the nurse brings her newly born daughter close to her face to kiss? How do I describe the way her tiny body will mold to her arms and then turn instinctively towards her? She has experienced this already and it has transformed her.
How do I communicate to my daughter that mix of joy and apprehension when her child will press her face up against the bus window, looking for her approval and one last secret hand sign meant only for them? Those moments are years away but really only blinks when we turn back to remember.
The joy is in that unbroken thread that weaves gently around the cradle, the school desks, picnic tables, swings, sunday school, softly spoken and heartfelt night night prayers, her first love and to places in the future we won't see. I can rejoice that this beautiful experience will gracefully be a part of my daughters life~ a mothers life. It's not easy. It's not meant to be easy. It's not hard. It's not meant to be hard. It is quite simply a bit of heaven placed here entrusted to each mother.
Be patient....it goes so quickly. Be grateful....this blessing isn't bestowed on everyone who wants it. Be there to listen....there will come a day when no one wants to talk. Be strong....there WILL be waves you need to battle. Be gentle....there will be bruises to kiss and hearts to heal. Be YOU....show your daughter by example how to be all she can be!
This is dedicated to my Jessica ♥ I am so thankful to God for your beautiful life and the honor of being your mother. You are an answer to my prayers. Blessings to you, Sweetheart! Oh.... and one last wish.... Happy Mothers Day! Love, Mom
