Happy Mothers Day to all the Mums! Motherhood is the best and hardest thing thats happened in my life, and i imagine that will still be true when I am much older and the kids are all grown up. As my little ones are small, life is very rushed and busy, and i dont often have the time or energy to take time out and think about this time in my life. I enjoy them everyday, and i do know how quickly its all going and just how precious they are, but its nice every now and then to stop and think, and be grateful and thankful for the blessing that they are. I have always felt a richness of blessing in my life, always think of myself as extremely fortunate for what I have, my family, my friends, my husband and my faith, but since having these children, there is a new joy in my life. I dream of what they will become and feel honoured to be the mum of Ruby and Charlie. My own Mum has played a huge 'lead role' in influencing me as a woman and a mother. She has so much passion for life, Godly values, integrity and her positive outlook on embracing the good and the bad life offers has to be her best quality. She truly lights up a room, and is such a pleasure to have around. I'm so happy my kids have 2 amazing Nannas in their lives, I could not have chosen better role models than my own Mum, and Mother-in-law. My Mum is just like her Mum, who is in her 70's, and has more energy and enthusiasm than all of us put together. Such strong, courageous, Godly women in my family. I am so thankful to share Mothers Day with them.
Yesterday I held an Afternoon Tea at our place and it was truly beautiful. Here are some photos of our Mothers Day.
My sister went very early to the flower markets and bought huge bunches that filled the whole verandah. The scent of the David Austin roses filled the backyard and Mum and Grandma took armfuls of flowers home as a gift from us. The husbands and my kids were there too of course, thats what makes Mothers Day so special, everyone being there to share it with you. Pretty vintage tea sets, beautiful home magazines, decorated birdcages, old pastel chandeliers, galvanised watering cans, pretty cake stands, and an old church pew - all filled the tiny space to create the loveliest afternoon tea I have ever had here. What a lovely way to celebrate Mothers Day. Wonderful moments to cherish.
