This was my first Mother's Day. I was just a Mom-to-be last year. This Mother's Day meant a lot to me. My mom died when I was 6 from Cystic Fibrosis. Mother's Day hasn't always been my favorite holiday because it usually just makes me miss her. I mean, I'm not really sad about it anymore. I had the most wonderful childhood with my dad... it's just that Mothers Day was always a little hard. This was the first Mother's Day that I was actually looking forward to. My husband and my beautiful son made it so great.
