firsts

Today is the first Mother's Day I am without my Mom.




Today is the first Mother's Day I am a D-Mom.




Today is the first Mother's Day our entire family rode their own bike.




Today is the first Mother's Day Ben and Ellie made me pancakes.




Today, this Mother's Day, I am grateful I get to be a daughter, a wife, a mother, and friend.  First things first . . . . eucharisteo.  May I always have days filled with firsts.

Happy Mother's Day to you Amy! I'm sure you are missing your Mom so much. Those firsts without a parent are tough....thinking of you.

Love your mom's clear shoes! I loved seeing another pic of her. I echo what Reyna said, hope this day brings you nice memories of your mama!

My mom died on Thanksgiving 2009 and I miss her everyday. Happy mother's day to you today.

How sweet....totally love the cat! :)
So glad there were 'good' firsts to balance out the 'hard' firsts!
Bean wanted to make me breakfast but Ubergeek persuaded her to just let me sleep...something far more important and appreciated than food!! :)

I thought of you today, sweet friend. I know that you are missing your Mom. LOVE that picture of her, she looks so beautiful! I am also sorry that you have to have a first in the T1D department. You are so wise to acknowledge all the ways you are thankful - thank YOU for sharing your optimism and your heart!

I cant wait to have lunch on Wednesday!

I can't wait until everyone in our house rides their own bikes! woot!

Love you!
