Mother's Day 2012

First of all, a HUGE THANK YOU to all of our loyal blog followers for the kind words of encouragement related to my previous blog post.  I appreciate how accepting everyone was of my honesty.  It feels nice to be able to have an outlet for my emotions.

Mother’s Day:

It is Mother’s Day…..It is my second year to be celebrating as MMMM..MA to Emma…..It is my second year to reflect upon what it means to be Emma’s mom…

I am truly blessed to be Emma’s mom.  This is a ‘job’ that I do not take lightly.  I work so hard to try to learn how to best care for my sweet little girl.  I am constantly learning how to help her grow and develop.  We enjoy our time together and I live for that sweet smile that keeps me going. 

I have had an AMAZING Mother’s Day.  Scott went above and beyond to make me feel extra special today.  It started with a great freshly brewed cup of coffee and a gorgeous and yummy Edible Arrangement.  Scott and Emma showered me with sweet cards and presents.  Then Scott made an absolutely delicious lunch consisting of steak with blue cheese, strawberry salad, guacamole Mexicana, and a chocolate raspberry torte.   I defiantly blew my diet today and DID NOT CARE!  After lunch, we took a 2hour family nap.  It was a very good day.

As many of you know, we had to take Emma to the hospital for a few day stay.  Emma has apparently caught a virus that has made her oxygen levels off.  So, we are home again which is good, but Emma is more snotty today and a little TMI her snot is getting more yellow.  We are watching her closely and have her on constant oxygen until this passes. 

We appreciate the prayers for our sweet little Princess as she battles this virus.  It is amazing how much a virus can effect her entire body. 

God is Good!  All the Time!

Here is a little video I put together to take a look back at my Motherhood Journey.  The Martina McBride song I used has been exceptionally meaningful lately.  Enjoy:


  1. Powerful video! I'm so thankful Emma is home! Praying for you everyday!

  2. Scott and Sarah, we have been off line for awhile, because we have moved. Finally settled and have checked in on you all. Love the last months posts and especially the video "IN MY DAUGHTER'S EYES". Very touching. We love you both and will be checking in a lot now that we are back on line. Our prayers continue. Love, Kendall and Darla

  3. Sarah, what a precious video tribute! Emma is truly blessed to have you for her mother. God knew how incredibly strong you were long before you started this journey. Your strength challenges me to strive to be the very best that I can be in every circumstance. Praise the Lord for your example. You truly are an example of a Proverbs 31 woman.

    Prayers always for you and your sweet family.
