I love Christmas, Thanksgiving and all the wonderful holidays, but one holiday that I love most is Mother's Day. I really enjoyed Mother's Day before my son arrived because I was able to spend it with my Mom. I was able to celebrate all the great things that she is made up of and I really cherished it. To be honest with you..... I never really thought I would be a Mommy. After years of dealing with infertility and a loss of a child in 2004, I thought that I would give IVF a try, but I more or less thought deep down that it wouldn't happen for me. I thought I would go along in life continuing to look at all the ladies with their children and wishing and hoping that someday I would have that chance. With Mother's Day fast approaching.... I am happy to say that it falls on the anniversary date of me receiving the call from my fertility doctor saying that WE ARE PREGNANT!! I remember the day like it was yesterday. I was sitting at my desk at work, waiting for that call and when the phone rang and the number came up on the caller id, well I froze. I let the phone ring and ring and finally after a very deep breath, I answered the phone. She told me that she had some good news! Oh, I felt like I could breath when she told me that. I was relieved and she hadn't even told me yet that we were pregnant. Then........ the words came out of her mouth.......Lisa, your beta results came back and you are PREGNANT! Yep, that is when the tears started falling! I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I WAS PREGNANT AND I COULDN'T BELIEVE THAT I WAS GONNA BE A MOMMY!! I WAS GONNA HAVE A BABY!! Indeed it was a great day for me, for us! I got off the phone and called my husband and we shared a few tears together and all he could ask me over and over again was "Are you sure"? Yep, I was sure, they were sure and well that is when all of our happiness started!
Being a Mommy has indeed been the best gift EVER!! Oh, don't get me wrong when I say that it is challenging and sometimes nerve-wrecking, but all the hugs, kisses, sweet remarks and snuggling definitely out weigh all those challenging and nerve-wrecking times! Cameron is such a sweet boy and I thank God ever single day for him..... actually more then once a day. He is indeed "The Best Gift" I have ever received. I was asked the other day what would be my ultimate Mother's Day gift? I simply said....... to sleep in, not have to cook any meals and a to receive a cute drawing made for me especially by Cameron. Yep, sounds like a perfect day and well I already have my perfect gift...... That is CAMERON! So, what is your perfect Mother's Day gift? I leave you with these pictures. Great pictures that I took of Cameron and I the other day. He is such my little buddy. I love you Cameron more then you will ever know.
