A Reflection, May 12, 2013

Today is Mother’s Day, I am very blessed.  I am thankful for my wonderful Mother and I am thankful that I am a Mother.  A year ago, I spent Mother’s Day in PICU with Christian.  Today, I only want to focus on blessings, when I think of a year ago and what my beautiful daughter was enduring, my chest gets tight and I am filled with anxiety.  Everyday Christian’s race was getting harder, the climb steeper.  Bailey was facing surgery this week last year on the broken bones in her arm.  So, today is a day for Happy Memories, the first words I heard this morning were Happy Mother’s Day, from my precious Bailey.  Last year on Mother’s Day I received a special gift from Lauren Glenn, one of Christian’s sweet friends.  She gave me a card with sweet note, I started my day today by reading that card, as I read it, I cried tears of joy.  Lauren is one of the blessings I am thinking about today.  Lauren also gave me a pack of “Hope” cards and a small canvas that said, “Believe in Possibility.”  Those words have become very special to me, The Christian Bryant Foundation is all about Believing in Possibility.  So, today, I am going to enjoy this beautiful day and think about my many Blessings.
