I had a great Mother's Day and felt so loved and cherished by my husband and kids! This year was a low key year...no big gatherings to go to, no meals to cook, etc. It turned out to be a rather rainy, dreary day and to be honest, I am glad it was kind of low key!
On Saturday I got these gorgeous flowers from Chris! I love their purple sunshine happiness they bring to our home! It was a perfect splash of color for the dreary weekend!
Then on Sunday morning I got a handmade card--SUPER cute-- from Chris and the kids. Chris traced each of their hands and he wrote special notes from them. I also got surprised to see I get to make a kid free trip to IKEA! Ikea is a couple hours from here, so it will be a fun, day trip! I can't wait (I've already started browsing online...I need to make my list!!) :-)
We had church in the morning and all the moms were honored and given a great, gospel-centered devotional book. I already started working through mine in the mornings and LOVE getting that great focus to the start of the day! Chris and I had the infant nursery during our BFG time and I especially loved loving on all the babies! We'd planned to grill out after church, but the rain changed those plans so we went to Little Caesar's for pizza (hey, I didn't cook it and that is really all that mattered to me!). All the kids took HUGE naps that afternoon and we just lazed around the house. It was wonderful!
I am so blessed and thankful God has entrusted me with these. What a high and noble calling to be a mother! Hope you had a great Mother's Day too!
