Garrett is a very thoughtful person. Even when we were engaged, I have always received a Mother's Day gift from him, even though I wasn't a mother yet. This Mother's Day there was a gift, but this time with more meaning because soon I will be a mother.
I cannot wait to be a mother. I sat in church yesterday and looked around at all of the women who were celebrating Mother's Day. I loved seeing the older generation walk into church with their corsages pinned to their dresses. I remember my grandma always wearing one on mother's day that my grandpa had bought for her. I loved seeing an elderly sister walk into church with a big hat on with feathers, which she wore the entire 3 hours of church. I loved seeing the little babies looking over their mother's shoulder, something that I can't wait to embrace.
So with my camera in hand and a new manicure and pedicure, it looks like I'm getting closer and closer to really experiencing Mother's Day, but more importantly - MOTHERHOOD!
