For Mother’s Day yesterday MC handed me a gift bag.
After I pulled out the tissue paper, I pulled out this picture from the bottom of the bag.
This was her gift to me.
It’s a picture she found in a baby album in her room.
She told me she thought I would like to remember when she and her sister were born.
Those first days with my two babies, born early and fighting to survive, aren’t days that are easily forgotten, but, yes I need reminders to remember…to really remember.
I need to remember the blessing that my children are in my life.
They are gifts to be treasured, not burdens to bear.
I am thankful for the reminder to remember given to me by my daughter.
This is one of my most treasured gifts.
