A year ago today was Mother's Day, my first as a Mom. We all went to church with my Mom, as we usually did on Mother's Day. I imagined sitting through the service next year with a baby on my lap. As everyone left the sanctuary, there were people handing out carnations to the Mom's and I got one.
We went into the room where coffee, tea and juice is served after church. I saw Rev. Mike in there and told him that I was pregnant.
We went back to Mom and Dad's house after. I went up to their spare room and got my Mom and sisters to come up. I lay down on the bed and showed them how you could see the outline of my uterus when I was lying down and they all gently felt my bump. I loved every second of it.
