Mother’s Day was beautiful in the South this year. After a week of overcast days and gray skies that only seemed to weigh down more heavily on my hurting heart, the glory of this past Sunday was a lift to my soul. Lately, my mind is never far from unceasing prayers for our friends who are enduring unspeakable grief with grace heaped upon grace….and it is never far from the thought that we have no idea when we lay our babies down at night if we will be gifted with another day to share in their sweet lives.
Motherhood is unimaginably more than we can ever anticipate in both its ups and downs, but this Mother’s Day I wanted to focus less on celebrating myself and more on savoring the four precious reasons I am a mother. We had planned a trip to Biltmore Estate in Asheville long before we knew it would fall after such an emotional week, and the two days we spent as just the six of us without distractions from our everyday lives were a balm to my soul.

One thought on “What We Did on Mother’s Day”
God knew you would need the weekend away long before you did. I am glad you had the chance to spend time together as a family. I can't wait to hear more about the Biltmore. I've never been!
