Happy Mother’s Day!

happy mothers dayI had an awesome, wonderful Mother’s Day today. This was the first time that Peanut made me breakfast in bed. I ended up eating at the table though because I was already showered and dressed when my breakfast was brought into the bedroom. She was so cute carrying the tray of scrambled eggs and toast.

I got a Winnie The Pooh card from Peanut and a cake that she decorated at school. I also got a Mickey Mouse card from Hubby with a unique vase and flowers (it wasn’t really a bouquet, just a small bunch of flowers that were beautifully decorated with a long feather as the center piece). I got a call from Lady Ali wishing me a happy day. I’ll be seeing her tomorrow. She’ll be stopping here with her fiance before they leave for their long ride to Kansas. I’m trying to keep it together….

Church was different because our sanctuary is still in the remodeling phase. I taught Children’s Sunday School. One of the things we saved time for was painting on the sheet rock up on the stage. I got some white paint for the children, old shirts to cover their Sunday best and let them have at it. Soon we had our Pastor and one of the Elders up there writing too. The children wrote things like, “I Love God” “Jesus Loves Us” and “Happy Mother’s Day”. Only in my church!

At home I rested and took a nap. Later for dinner, Hubby went to Outback Steakhouse for take out. I had a delicious meal of steak and lobster tail, with baked potato and steamed veggies. I left some steak and veggies and Hubby didn’t finish all of his mashed potatoes. I saved that for a good lunch.

Then we had the cake that Peanut made. I feel like I could roll out of here without my rolling chair I’m so stuffed. The gifts don’t matter to me. What’s more important is the time we spent together as a family. I’ll have a second Mother’s Day tomorrow with my older daughter. I know I’m going to cry so please keep me in your prayers.
