My first Mother’s Day is one for the books.

I’ve been looking forward to this day for a long time – but not because of the holiday, but because of a different celebration. Today, Jack was baptized.

When we were in the hospital, I would constantly day dream about what normal life with Jack would be like. At the time, the recovery road seemed tedious and it was almost hard to imagine having healthy baby who would be able to interact with people.

Today, we got to face a congregation of people who have prayed fervently for Jackson. He was baptized while surrounded by the people who love him more than he’ll ever understand, and for me that was the ultimate Mother’s Day gift.

God is GOOD, y’all!
