Mother's Day

I have to say that this was one of the best Mother's Day's I've had to date. And yet there is nothing spectacular to report, other than the fact that we had no agenda and a totally relaxing day.

After church we had a nice family lunch at Season's 52, followed by a very relaxing and lazy afternoon. Both Sophie and Jack presented me with sweet little gifts each of them made for me at school, which I will cherish forever. Or at least until next year when perhaps they will outdo themselves.

Sophie planted a sweet yellow marigold in a cute little pot that she hand painted with ladybugs and bumblebees, using her own little fingerprint as the body for each creature. She also wrote a special book, all about Mommy's favorite things, which was beautifully written and illustrated. According to her, my favorite thing to do is go to parties - just us girls.

Jack had his own fun with a hand print tile and a very special Mother's Day card that was handwritten - which is no easy feat for this little guy.

It really is the simple things that can bring so much happiness to one's life. I am so thankful to be a Mother!
