So two weeks ago was Mother's Day. I wasn't dreading it, probably because we were 2 days away from being approved and that was exciting. Last year on Mother's Day, my hubby woke me up and told me "Happy Pre-Mother's Day" which was terribly sweet. The day before Mother's Day this year I reminded him how he had done that and he said he would say it again this year. The day of, we woke up, got ready to go to church at my brother's, went there, visited. I wished my sis-in-law a Happy Mother's Day and she wished the same to me, saying something to the affect of me being close enough to a mom by now; I can't remember exactly but it was very kind of her (it's quite nice sometimes having a brother & sis-in-law who have adopted and get it). We had church and then headed to my mom's. At that point Hubby said "Happy Pre-Mother's Day" and then apologized for forgetting. It was okay; when I realized he was forgetting I just determined not to remind him or hold it against him, since both would make him feel worse.
We spent the first half of the day at my mom's. It was her birthday as well, so a doubly special day for her. I gave her two little gifts. We had a wiener roast for lunch, went for a walk in the gravel pits, and played bocce. It was a nice day, although I felt bad for my mom that only half her children were able to come. At lunch when my brother prayed before the meal, he not only thanked God for my mom, but also for me, and about me becoming a mom soon, and that this would be a special year for us. I've never been included in a Mother's Day prayer, so it was very touching!!
The second half of the day we spent at my mom-in-law's. I gave her a little gift and we watched the Survivor finale. Yay, Cochran! Love that guy, lol :D
That was pretty much my Mother's Day this year. Two days later we got approved. And now we wait and see what next year's Mother's Day is like.
