Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mothers who are reading this post this evening! I hope that your days were calm, restful, lots of fun with a lack of stress! My second Mother’s Day started at 430 this morning with a run to the ER with Griffin. Add to that a doctor who proceeds to tell us that he thinks that our child who is running a 203.4 degree temperature has Kawasaki’s disease BEFORE running any sort of tests…. and it makes for the beginning of a lovely Mother’s Day!! 🙂 Needless to say, the doctor was wrong and caused us an unnecessary three hours of worrying during which three nurses had to hold my 19-month old son down to take his blood. Yeah… thanks Doc.
During those three scary hours, I thought a lot about being a mother. I thought a lot about all of the time I waste in my life doing things that don’t really matter, when I could be spending more time with my son. I thought about all of the things I stress about on a daily basis when I should be thankful for every second I have with my family and I should make an effort to enjoy every single second of it. Life is so short. My life is so busy. I need more time. I need more time with my son. I need to cherish these years as they are already passing so quickly. I don’t think that I have ever felt the sense of relief I felt when the doctor on the next shift came in and told us that Griffin’s blood panel was fine and that it must just be a virus. Even though it was a HORRIBLE way to start off Mother’s Day, I am thankful because it made me so thankful to be a mother to the most beautiful boy in the world and it caused me to re-evaluate my priorities.
With that said, Happy Mother’s Day to all of you wonderful mothers! Enjoy EVERY second! The moments pass so quickly and you never know when life can happen and everything changes in an instant. In honor of capturing and treasuring memories, I would like to offer a $50 print credit to all mother’s who book a session for their children before the end of the month. Email me for details! 🙂
And I suppose some of you are waiting for the winner of the contest right? To select the winner, I had a random number generator randomly select a number (it selected 12) and then I counted down the comments and found the winner.
