Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the mama's out there.
I hope that your day was filled with blessings.
Mine was filled with three of my biggest.
Well, four, can't forget the hubster.

I feel so very blessed to be a mother.
Yes, it is hard.
But anything that you put all of yourself; your heart, soul, body and mind to is going to be hard.
If there is anything that is worth putting all of yourself into, it is your children.
I feel so very blessed to be given this calling in life.
This divine responsibility.
These children are a gift from God.
Yes, these zany, wacky, silly, goofy, loving, spectacular beings that I am blessed to call my own are amazing.

I remember a time though when Mother's Day was painful.
I remember feeling like I wanted to bury my head in the sand to simply survive those 24 hours.
To those of you that are hurting today, I am deeply sorry.
I know how that wound festers on today especially.
I am here for you.
You are in my prayers.


Today was a really laid back day.
We couldn't go to church.
I am still sick.
Ainsley and Abby are sick too.

After getting everyone clean and ready for the day we headed to Target.
Adison had some money burning a hole in her pocket and I promised her that we would go this weekend.
So after some fun their we headed home.
I spent my afternoon reading and resting.
I bought the People Royal Wedding edition.
{Yes, I really did.}
I am also still reading Water for Elephants.

It was a really nice afternoon.
Then K made us dinner.
Homemade chicken fried rice.
We finished off our dinner with...

Like I said, a really laid back day.
I loved it.

I would also like to thank my Mom.
Mom, you rock!
You did an amazing job with Joe and I.
I couldn't have picked a better mother for me.
{She's totally awesome and just so happens to be my bff.}

I hope that your Mother's Day/Sunday was full of blessings.
What did you do today?
