Twenty-two years ago tomorrow I stood at the back of the church after the service. It was Mother's Day - a hard day for me as I'd given up hope of ever being a mother. A little Jamaicain lady in the church came up to me and gave me a hug. She whispered in my ear "next year you will be spending Mother's Day with your son". I just nodded. She didn't understand. There was no way that was going to happen.

Twenty-one-years ago tomorrow at 8:31 AM I looked into the beautiful brown eyes of the most precious baby boy in the world. Twenty-one-years ago tomorrow, I spent Mother's Day with my son.

Happy twenty-first birthday Ryan Guy! You are the most wonderful gift a mother could ever hope for.

Oh my friend, I have such tears in my eyes. God has blessed you, as He has blessed me, with the joy of being a mother. My story is similar and I understand how precious this day we celebrate is to your heart.

Happy birthday to your dear son. And hugs for you!

Well that's just a beautiful remembrance, is it not? I've missed you, friend, and when I saw a comment labeled "Kentucky Bound" my heart skipped a beat. My folks are headed in that direction next week for Asbury Seminary's graduation! Wish I could come with them.

Happy Mother's Day. I had a similar experience with my 3rd child. God goes to great lengths to make sure that we're aware of his love and presence in our world. I pray for you more moments of sacred revelation while hanging out on the farm this week.

Love you~elaine
