I shouldn't even be on the computer because I'm spending time with the family BUT I could not just stay away and not come in to wish my Mom, Stepmom and Grandmothers as well as SIL's and MIL AND my bloggy Mom friends, a wonderful wonderful wonderful Happy Mother's Day.
"M" is for the million things she gave me,
"O" means only that she's growing old,
"T" is for the tears she shed to save me,
"H" is for her heart of purest gold;
"E" is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
"R" means right, and right she'll always be,
Put them all together, they spell
A word that means the world to me.
A word that means the world to me.
Every single one of you have touched my life in one way or another, and I do mean everyone, even the bloggy friends that I have never met personally.
You bring a smile to my face everyday and you've been there with me through the ups and downs, the laughs and the joys of being a mom, but I know that we all have one thing in common, no matter how tough things may get and no matter how many days we have where the only thing we want to do is pull our hair out and run for the hills, WE WOULDN'T TRADE IT FOR ANYTHING IN THE WORLD.
So I hope each and every one of you have a blessed and wonderful Mother's Day....hope you're
sleeping in and being brought breakfast in bed, getting tons of hugs and kisses and handmade cards and pictures from your little ones (or big ones)....and most of all I hope you know how special you all are!!!
Curt and the kids fixed breakfast for me this morning and then Curt and I got to sit at the kitchen table, sipping coffee and playing a game of cards.....PERFECT!
Curt then presented me with tons of jewellery, I got a tennis diamond bracelet and a matching diamond mom necklace, a Tiffany Style Heart Necklace and matching bracelet (like the one Jennifer Aniston wore on Friends)
A rope chain necklace and diamond earrings.....yeah, I couldn't believe how many beautiful pieces I got. Isn't he just a wonderful husband?
Jasmine showered me with handmade gifts she had been working on for weeks, literally, I'm not joking :) She gave me crafts made at school and things she put together on her own....needless to say I had a good cry.
Nicholas gave me the biggest hug on earth when he saw me this morning and without any coaxing from anyone, said "Happy Momma's Day".....then he broke my heart, not in a bad way, but when everyone started talking about gifts, he started bawling because he hadn't bought me anything. Is there anything more heartbreaking than that??? WE got to hug for a long time while he cried about "I didn't get anything for you", so daddy told him he'll take him to the store this afternoon and he can pick whatever he wants to give mommy....his reply "LOTS of big candy"...THAT'S MY BOY! LOL
So I'm spending my day watching movies, reading books and doing whatever I want to, yes it's MY day and I've earned it, I've worked hard for 363 days out of the year just to have this one day for myself, to be the boss, to let my hair down and eat extra cookies if I want to....*sigh*
I'm going to leave you with some pictures I took yesterday afternoon when we went for a drive, we just jumped in the car and drove, sometimes it feels great to do that, no time restraints, no rushing to be somewhere or worries about things left hanging while we drive....try it sometime, you'll be surprised at how much fun it is and how good for the soul.
Have a great day!
