I was going to make a Mothers Day post yesterday, but how could I tell you how wonderful it was, before it was over? 🙂
For lack of better words, I have been a little out of sorts lately, so I was slightly worried. (about myself, not my family).
It was wonderful.
Funny how the most SIMPLE things are my favorites. Honestly, those things that cost no money, only a little effort, and just a little time.
My kids did great.
Isn’t this the cutest thing? he whipped it up as I was getting ready for church. You have to know my son well, to understand how much I will love “redeeming” these coupons. (especially, “Calm Your Voice” day!!) I told him, that one can NEVER expire, and I can redeem it over and over and over!! haha!!!
In the afternoon, he treated me to my annual Mothers Day pedicure!!! yeah, finally I am on the receiving end of luxury.
My daughter and I went browsing around the Book Vault in the afternoon, and I reminded her on the way, this was the BEST things she could do with me. Take a little time out of her 17 year old life to hang out with her mother. 🙂 and then we had an Iced Coffee together. Perfect.
She also knows my weakness for soft feet, so she even went and bought me a lavender Bee Bar to compliment my pedicure I had just received. Bless her heart!!!
I also want to share one of my VERY favorite pictures with her. (taken with Mothers Day in mind)
I had taken this picture with good intentions. It was going to be entered into a contest for Mother / Daughter look alike. Well, being the PROCRASTINATOR that I have become, it did not get submitted. Grrrr…… but nevertheless, I love the picture!!! and….I am pretty confident we would have won. 🙂
And Glenn? well he still tries to buy my love. (haha!! JOKING) but he did me a nice crisp $50 bill. I will still gladly accept money. 🙂
I am very thankful for my family each and every day, but honestly, sometimes Mothers Day is simply a good reminder, that your tireless work as a mother IS appreciated and maybe they ARE listening to you and seeing the example you are setting. Just when I begin to doubt my ability as a mother, they give me gentle reminders that maybe I am doing an a pretty good job afterall.
I hope for all my blog reading mothers, you had an equally wonderful day. Share your details, I would LOVE to hear them.
Now only 364 more days till we are all officially recognized once again. 🙂
