Tonight my heart is so full of joy. Today was a day I will never, ever forget and I will treasure the memories forever. Today was a wonderful celebration in my hometown, Fredericksburg, VA. We had a lovely "Garden Party" themed Bridal Shower for Brittany and Sam and it was just awesome sharing all the love and joy with some of of family and friends.
Brittany looked absolutely stunning and Sam was handsome as always. They got some wonderful gifts and I think the reality that their wedding is coming up soon has finally set in...in a GREAT way. :-)
Today was also an incredible day for another reason. After the festivities were over, we were cleaning up and I decided to change back into my comfy shoes. I was sitting down changing them and I noticed Zach watching me. When I looked up at him he said, "Mom is beautiful".
I have no words....
I can't even begin to tell you what it did to my heart. My son who doesn't talk said that I'm beautiful. That's better than any gift I've ever been given and it is an unimaginable gift. One that I'll treasure always.
I'm thanking God tonight for all that He's given me and for sending me a sign reminding me that He's in control and that He loves me and will never, ever let me go. I'm feeling blessed beyond measure.
So here are some lovely smiles and wonderful memories from the day...
