a glimpse into our home: may 13, 2012

This scene fills my heart with such joy.

Yes, I loved the flowers and succulent garden and waffles topped with strawberries and whipped cream – Ian and Luke are giving me a great first mothers day!

But it’s seeing toys scattered on the floor, wiping yams off of chubby fingers, holding a sleepy baby a little longer than he needs and washing diapers that my heart longed for over the past few years.

I am so blessed and so thankful. Most days I think my heart might burst from the joy of it all, and today I feel it even more. Last year on mothers day I trusted and waited in hopeful anticipation for the day I would become a mom – I had no idea it would happen a month later!

Baby boo, thank you for making motherhood such a joy. You are a perfect fit for me and bring so much light and laughter into my life. You have helped me learn to love better, to seek grace in all things, to trust more and fear less, and to enjoy life more fully. I love you always and forever, your mama.
