First Mother's Day

Sunday was so special in so many ways. I've always dreamed of being a Mommy and this year those dreams came true, not just once but four times over. I'm so thankful for each of my girls and the special privilege God gave me when He made me their Mommy.

Reid made my first Mother's Day especially amazing. He gave me cards and gifts from each of our girls. It was so special of him to honor me as a mom of four. We had a great morning at church, spent time with Olivia in the afternoon, went on a walk, and out to a nice dinner before heading back to the hospital to "tuck" Olivia in.

Sunday could have been a really hard day, and I definitely did think about Catherine, Madelyn, Mary Grace and my mom quite a bit. At the same time, I was so happy to get to celebrate being Olivia's mom! Our sweet girl brings so much JOY to my heart!

Olivia, with the help of her sweet nurse, made a card for me! So special!

I'm so glad that you had a Happy Mother's Day! Your husband was right on to celebrate you as a mother of four. You have most certainly earned that title!

You are such a fantastic example to those who read your story. Thank you for being so transparent and allowing us to follow along.

Oh my friend. Thank you for sharing your story. Thank you for your honesty in your struggles. And thank you for allowing the hope of Christ to shine into your unbelievably challenging days. Your words are a testimony to the power of the Spirit - I cannot imagine how difficult it is to choose to say blessed be Your Name. Even as I type those words, I get goosebumps and tears are filling my eyes in wonder. Because of you, I am giving glory to our Father at this moment.

As a recent mom of GBG triplets, I am in awe of any mama of quads. I look forward to reading more of your story and getting to know you guys from afar.
A friend,
