Mother’s Day 2016

Mother’s Day is such a tricky thing.  I can’t help but think of the hurting moms, the want-to-be moms, the single moms… I have been given so much and been so blessed, and this day is so special to me!  But my heart goes out to those for whom this day is difficult.

This year we were all together, which doesn’t always happen with my husband’s job.  The theme of the day seemed to be good food and time together.  Perfect.

Thank you, amazing family!  I’m the luckiest mama!  Oh, and catching this little guy was another “present.”  I found him in our chicken coop in the morning.  (He is no longer with us!)
