For the mother of small children, Mother’s Day is not all it’s cracked up to be. This is why. . .
This Mother’s Day was full of firsts for me. My kids turned a corner on understanding the “holiday” and I benefitted, for sure.
KB brought me breakfast in bed. . . a Toaster Strudel, baby carrots with ranch dressing and iced coffee.
I picked what we would eat for lunch and we took it to the park so the kids could play and I could sit in the glorious surroundings of creation.
KB and I had a tea party and “serious” conversation. She also sang me a song that she wrote right there on the spot. The line I remember is that “mommies are mighty, strong, and eternal”. Sheesh.
I went out with girlfriends for dinner. It was actually funny to see five of us out on Mother’s Day withOUT any of our children, but our dear friend April was in town and it was necessary to catch up and eat Mexican!!! So. Much. Fun.
I didn’t call my mom all day. I sent a quick text in the A.M. but decided that my gift to her was that the phone wasn’t going to ring all day.
Hope you had a great Mother’s Day – – – whether you were being loved on or doing the loving.
I, too, had a non-traditional Mother’s Day. I requested only 1 thing……3 meals and to lay in bed all day. So, Cory and the girls took me to First Watch before church. Went to church…..then rested all afternoon and all evening. I feel so refreshed today!!!! A new women indeed! I LOVE being a Mother!!!! Congrats on your special day!
LOVE the special things you did (and heard) :). Glad you got to enjoy being a Mommy and being a friend!
