Jumbled emotions

This morning I am a mom with jumbled emotions. Today I am overwhelmed by God's goodness...and yet my heart aches for those who I know are facing a difficult day.

My words and emotions are all jumbled inside of me. I am short on time, since we need to leave for church in 30 minutes. It's my first Mother's Day. It's a little too much to comprehend and for some reason I keep crying today. My poor husband is beside himself not knowing what to do with me this morning!

I jumped over to my blog friend Wendi's site to see what she would write about Mother's Day. She asked if she could link to my post from Friday and now I'm linking to her post. Her words say EXACTLY what is on my heart. She knows the feelings related to Mother's Day now that she is a mom. And, she understands the pain that is still present on this day. She too has a list of people she is praying for all day because her heart is tender...she has walked the road they are currently walking.

You can read Wendi's post here.

And just as she says on her post, to those of you reading this who are waiting on the Lord, I will be praying for you today.

I'm praying that God would show you soon, very soon, how beautiful His perfect timing really is.

Thank you. I appreciate your words & that you remember.

This will not come to some of us no matter how long we wait.

Wow! So glad you linked your friends blog!

I'm one of those who is sitting at home today while my husband went and represented us at church. BUT, by God's grace he let me catch a nasty cold so that I wouldn't have to make the choice of going to church or not! :)

I truly hope that your Mother's Day is a WONDERFUL day!!! You deserve to have nothing but pure joy as you celebrate this day!

Not only are you a great mother, but you are also a great blog-world friend! :) Thank you for thinking/praying for me today!

Thank you for thinking of us still waiting. Your compassion means a lot to me, and I'm sure to others who are still waiting for their miracle. Today was definitely a trying day, but knowing that you are praying for all of us, means the world.

Happy Mother's Day. I won't even say Happy first Mother's Day, because you have been a mother for a while, and you have babies in heaven who are your forever angels. :-D
