it's Mother's Day...around 7:30am. Paul is driving home now from his work week away and i am really excited to see him.
Thursday night Jordan invited me to the Mother's Day breakfast at her school. I don't get to spend Mother's Day with Jordan EVER because she is with her mom. I sometimes feel like I miss out a little, because I am a mother to Jordan over 50% of the time...but I understand she is not biologically mine (though I do forget sometimes). Still, I felt honored, special, proud, and most of all loved...it was a good feeling. This morning on our drive to the breakfast I was expressing to Jordan how much I really appreciated that she invited me and how special it made me feel. She looked at me with all the sincerity a kid could have and said, "Well we never get to spend Mother's Day together and you are one of my mom's, but this is special too." I love this little girl with all that I am...and she is mine, even if I have to share her sometimes...she is MINE!
So the breakfast was adorable! They had little tables set up real cute with muffins and juice and the kids were encouraged to serve their mom's breakfast. Jordan introduced me to all of her friends as her "other Mom, HolleeAnn" and I did my best not to cry all over myself. She was proud of me, proud to introduce me to the kids I had not met from her class. And when it was time to go, SHE thanked ME for coming. I love her, I love her, I love her....life is beautiful!
True Happiness is being a MOM! (however motherhood finds you...truly)
