On another note, Happy Memorial Day. I am so thankful to the men and women that have ever worn a uniform in the service to our country. I am so thankful for the freedoms that my family and I enjoy. And of course thank you to all the families that also sacrifice for their loved ones' service.

One of my favorite places in the world is the beach. We are so lucky to be able to live just a few blocks away, in walking distance. At half tide, our beach has tidal pools, perfect for a 7 month old to splash about in. I just love this photo that my mom took. It's mid-splash and Zane has learned quickly to close his eyes and mouth. I am still so amazed that this beautiful child is in our lives - heck, IS our life - and playing in the same tidal pools that I played in at his age. He brings so much joy to the smallest discoveries.

What a wonderful day!! Zane was baptized today - a moment I have dreamed about. So long I have prayed about this day and this beautiful event. I pray I will be a good example in his faith life.
And of course it was Mother's Day. What a wonderful first one! I am so excited to be a mom to Zane and a mom in general. For so many years this has been a difficult day when my heart longed to have a child. So with my joy and excitement of my first Mother's Day, I can't help but to think of all the moms-in-waiting out there. I know the pain. Hang in there - God put it in your heart to be a mom and He gave you perseverance as a personal trait, you too will celebrate Mother's Day one day. It's worth the wait, worth every dark day to get to this moment.
