What I Wore Sunday: Mother's Day

Mother's Day picture with Mother Mary after Mass
Not a great WIWS picture, but it's all I've got.  :)  The dress is from Ross {Surprise, surprise.  Since I pretty much only wear dresses to Mass, Ross is great place to get cute, inexpensive ones that I don't feel bad about if I only wear them a couple of times}.  I won't even go into the shoes and earrings because, well, you can't see them.

I had a great Mother's Day. 
Highlights include:
*the kids sleeping in until 9am, which is unheard of in this house {it must have had something to do with them staying up late for Luke's game last night}. 
*pancakes made by my hubby for breakfast
*a card and dance from my three loves
*staying in my pew with both the kids and my husband during the entire Mass--as in, we didn't have to take a fussy/squirmy baby to the back of the church {I think this was Gemma's Mother's Day gift to me :)}
*M&Ms and coffee for lunch, per my request
*a relaxing and delicious BBQ with friends this evening

Now the kids are tucked into bed, and Luke and I are looking forward to a quiet evening together.

Mother's Day has been a wonderful day for me to reflect on the blessing of Motherhood.  It is not something I take for granted, and I am forever thankful for my sweet children.  As Luke and I pray for another baby in our family {should it be God's Will}, I join in prayer with all those who struggle with infertility or who have lost babies due to miscarriage and still birth.  I also pray for those who have had abortions in the past, for their healing and their conversion of heart.  Being a Mom is hard at times, but I truly can't imagine anything else more rewarding.

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mamas, especially my Mama in Heaven.  I know she is looking after me and praying for me incessantly, and she would be just enamored with Augustine and Gemma!!

Go see Fine Linen and Purple for more ladies in their Sunday best!
