Mother's Day weekend was a combination of wonderful and hard this year.
Wonderful because we celebrated Philip's graduation from medical school and Mother's Day together. No better way to celebrate than spending time with the very people that made me a mother! Plus, it was fun celebrating Catherine being a Mother too and awaiting the arrival of Baby No. 2 !
Come on baby -- it's time -- we want to meet you!
When we got home, Maddy and I did some of our traditional Mother's Day photos. She wanted us to dress alike that day, so we did. Always follow instructions from your 9-year old!
And it was hard because it was the first Mother's Day without my own sweet Mother.
We miss her so! Maddy and I kept very busy that day with a movie, visiting the zoo, shopping, playing with the dog and cleaning house (yep, I did say that!) and still, that giant hole in our hearts is there and always will be. Yet, I know that she would want us to celebrate holidays, be happy and live life fully, and so, that's what we're attempting. Our love for her and the bond between us will never end.
