Yes, I am blessed, and in the most SIMPLE ways!!! Maison’s mowing money was gone for the week, (spent on candy!!!) so he made a frugal contribution to Mothers Day!!! I tell him 100 x over, the best things do NOT cost money!!! and believe me, it is a HUGE treat for me to finally sit on the recipient side of my salon pedicure chair!!! the last pedicure I got was Mothers Day 2008, as it was his “gift” last year as well.
Madison is the working girl…..works her little heart out at Wendys!!!!! up to 34 hours a week!! that girl has NEVER been afraid of work in any form!!! so, bless her heart, she went and bought candles for me and an air freshener for my little car. She is quite proud of her “farmers tan” if you can see it. She spent 10 hours working on a cattle ranch for one of my friend, IN BETWEEN working closing shifts at Wendys. I am proud of her and her stamina!!!! She is convinced she will raise cattle for a living now. 🙂
and last but certainly not least , my husband!! I had all but given up on this vacuum and was going to have to break down and MAYBE buy a replacement!!! he took it and tinkered with it, digging out all the things I probably should have NOT vacuumed up in the first place….and it is good as new!!!!!!!!!! he even vacuumed for me today, in addition to mowing, tending to the garden, etc etc etc…..and then slipped me some of his “mowing money” to go get myself something special tomorrow. 🙂
I spent the better part of the day on my porch, reading, watching Glenn and talking to the kids. No laundry, cleaning OR cooking.
I hope you have all had an equally blessed Mothers Day!!!!Life is good.
