I hope you all had a fantastic Mother’s Day. Mine was a little bittersweet. I was thinking of my Mom all day. I’d have given just about anything to have been able to call her up and say ” I Love You Mama! ” But she was busy, I’m sure, showing my Mamaw Wicker who passed away on Tuesday all around Heaven!
I smiled though when I saw a picture that Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland posted of her new baby boy Magnus on Twitter yesterday. I remember my first Mother’s Day in 1993. My oldest daughter Kaitlyn was almost six months old and I was just starting to get the hang of being a mom, or atleast I thought so.
I remember getting my first “Mother’s Day” card, I felt so grown up. I love cards, but now that my girls are older, I always request that they write me a letter instead. Their words mean so much more to me than a Hallmark Card. But when they’re babies, cards work pretty good too.
Jennifer, you’re baby boy is precious. Enjoy your time off and savor every second, because one day you’ll wake up and he’ll be grown. Always choose your children over your career, that is a decision you will never regret!
