This is the picture I sent out to everyone for Mother's Day. It could be a preview since I was very late in getting them mailed... the intention was good! I hope that all of you mothers out there have a great day! I would like to share with you a few things that I received today... I cried (but happy tears), just like my daughter Sam drew on her card for me!!
My children with the help of my husband made me breakfast in bed... a heavenly thing for me. (Not having the get up to fix everyone breakfast, and sausage served to me is my idea of heaven!!) All joking aside, I was then given lots of cards, two beautiful magnet boards hand made by my oldest two daughters. A hand stamped card from Carrie, a beautiful flower pin hand made by Sarah that was complemented MANY times at church! A wonderful massage/facial gift certificate from my husband (who bartered labor in fixing a few things at the salon for it-thrifty and thoughtful the best kind of gift!!) But the best gifts were the words that my children wrote in the cards... I'd like to share them with you because I am so grateful for my thoughtful children and even more grateful that these are the words that make them think of me ( I only hope I can live up to their praise!)
A card from Jessica lists.... You are, sweet, nice, remarkable, funny, teaching, smart, loving, understanding. I love you mom (MOM ROCKS)
Sammy's Hanging Poem reads:
Sarah made me a book... "You are my I love you"
It is to long to put the entire thing but the last page says... I am your child. You are my mother and you are my I love you.
She also had a fill in the blank page... I'd like to share a few of her answers!!
My Mom is Wonderful!
She is pretty as a cupcake
She is 28 years old
She weighs 21 pounds and is 10 feet tall
Oh, to live up to all of these things!!! All I can say is that I LOVE being a mother. I have never worked so hard in my life, nor been so rewarded! I am grateful for this responsibility, and I am ever trying to be better. I hope you all have a great day!
