Sunday Snapshot- A Mother's Thoughts

Happy Mother's Day! Hoping you all are having a restful and loving day.  It is and always will be my favorite holiday.  A day about the job that really is the most important to me. A day to celebrate my loves both born of my body and my heart.  A day to once again reflect on how deep my love runs for all my kids and it makes no difference how I meet them or when.

I watched our oldest make one more step closer to manhood this week.  How my heart felt it.  Not that I don't want him to succeed and fly but that I must one day let those wings take flight. 

I started my early life not wanting children. I believed at that time that money, power, and my version of success was what would make my world turn.  Many years later I now know what really makes my world turn. It is those eight eyes that look at me each day.

I feel so blessed today but my heart always yearns for those left behind.  I started editing photos for An Orphans Wish a couple months ago.  Each month I am privileged enough to edit photos of children who desperately need a Mom. Each month I fall in love with them and pray that a family comes soon.  That someone sees a photo I edit and their heart longs to hold that child in their arms.  A little boy has been waiting for two years for this moment.  Alec is one of those little boys.  I so pray he too finds parents to love and kiss that sweet face many times a day!

Happy Mother's Day!
