Mother’s Day 09
I had such a good Mother’s day this year, I’m still soaking in it.
Not only did they pick out the best cards ever, give me the best gifts ever, but they let me help plan the weekend to be sure I felt blessed. They helped me. Hands on. I got to be with both Moms, have them for lunch, and have my own dinner out. It was the bomb. Which is a good thing, in case you don’t know the slang!
I didn’t feel the best, but they made me feel the best. I love my family…
There will never be a photo of my son I treasure more, I can assure you. I had hesitations about posting it, it meant so much to me, how proud he was to take my present into the restaurant to surprise me.
All the kids could not wait for me to get my presents this year…it was so cool.
(If you read my blog, realize is precious to me, so I’m sharing with you out of the sweet places in my life to share with you…don’t mention it to the kids, okay?)
“Flash” saw me take a photo and ran back for his own present to carry…gotta love that!
Boy wonder took my picture for me while we ordered food. The waitress thought we were a hoot, I’m sure. It was so pretty I hated to open it! There is just something special about store-wrapped gifts, isn’t there? I wish I could wrap that well!
Still ordering food. What a crazy kid!
So, the polka dot box had in it a new set of wind chimes. Mine bit the dust about three years ago, my good ones…I’d gotten a needle to work the string back through the clanker about ten times. I love them!
The bag had in it…a replacement of my iPod Nano I left at the hotel in Nashville over spring break. You all, I nearly cried. The minute I opened it, my daughter slapped her hand over my mouth, literally. She said, “I knew you were going to scream, so I was prepared.” I was totally speechless to be honest. It was an extravagant gift I never asked for in the beginning, I could have lived with out it…just something he knew I’d enjoy…a wonderful and lavish gift to begin with, a very great mercy to replace it. I still get all mushy thinking about it. What a great guy…
