Like Mother , like daughter. 

Happy Monday Friends! I hope all my mommy friends had a fabulous Mother’s Day. I know this day can be hard for a lot of people, and yesterday, my heart was a little heavier. 

I was sitting in church , looking around and caught glimpse of my mom. And it hit me…her mother is gone and her kids are grown. And then I thought of my Mother in law. This is her very first year with out her mom. And the thoughts began to wander….to those who have lost, to those who have given up a child, to those that have fostered , to those who desperately want to be a Mother but they struggle with infertility. The list goes on and on. My heart and prayers go out to all these women! 

  
I did have a fabulous day with my two babies! I love how excited they are on this day just to serve and please me. I know this time is flying by and soon they will perhaps have a family of their own, and one day my own Mother will be gone as well. So today, and everyday, I will cherish this time with them. Even in the busyness of each day, I must try harder and do better to be present! 

  

  

I absolutely love that my daughter was excited to match with me in these adorable “Lilly for Target dresses! I know soon, this stage will pass us by! 

   

  

 

Never let the little things disrupt the biggest things you cherish in life

Happy Monday ! Now call your Mother! 

Xoxo

Wit Style,

Monica
