To me, this picture, taken at my wedding, personifies my Mom. Doesn't every Mother of the Bride lug a lawn chair out of her trunk, park it in the front lawn of the church and take a smoke break while cracking up at something apparently quite hilarious? It was far from my favorite photo when I first received my wedding album.... but it has grown on me over the years. It really makes me laugh to even just think of it.
I love my mom and know that she loves me. Happy Mother's Day, Mom! ♥
My family surprised me this morning with some adorable works of art that the girls had made. I didn't take the time to post a picture, but imagine lots of glitter, glue and foam hearts, flowers and the words "Happy Mother's Day!" I loved them. My little girls also must have had more in the piggy banks than I realized because they bought me a sewing machine!! I am slightly suspicious that their Dad contributed to the fund. ☺ I'm eager to sew something... I just don't know what... or how. But that's all part of the fun!
We had a nice lunch out after church today. Nothing says "Happy Mother's Day" to me like steak kabobs. He he he. Seth, though not a mother if you didn't know, ate like it was all about him. He finished his entree, then finished half a chicken breast that my Mom couldn't finish, and then ate a half a chicken breast that I couldn't finish. The man is truly a phenomenon. He probably eats about 3,000 calories a day and tips the scales at 157 lbs.
After Seth ate every morsel left on our tables, we had a small birthday celebration for Eden at my in-laws house. She was lavished with some adorable outfits and some fabulous and ultra-girly toys. I do believe that she has more purses than I do!
This evening Maddie and I ended up coming home before church began due to Maddie's asthma. She's been having a very tough time this Spring. Usually, her asthma improves in the Spring and Smmer but it is getting worse this year. I would really like to avoid increasing her prescription medicine so I am looking into natural remedies. Please pray for wisdom as I try to learn and make decisions. Also please pray that God would heal her of this ailment.
Happy Mother's day everyone!
