Belated Mother's Day Gifts

My Aunt Helen surprised me with these beautiful lilies as a belated Mother's Day gift. She gave them to me over Memorial Day weekend when I was visiting Virginia. They aren't real, but certainly look it, so it'll be nice to always have some white lilies on my desk in honor of my pure little flower. I have them in a mug with lily of the valley on it that I got from the gift shop in the hospital where Lily was born.

She also gave me this little lamb (with a flower) that I'll keep in Lily's memory chest. Helen had it originally to use in my cousin Hope's nursery. Hope was adopted from China and is now grown. I think it's special to have. I love that lilies and lambs remind Helen of Lily and I. :)

When Helen gave me this gift, she had tears in her eyes as she told me she hopes one day I will be a mother to more children on Earth. I could tell she deeply meant what she was saying. I can't explain why fully, but it means a lot to know people "see me" here.
