Happy Mother's Day!

This morning I was awakened by three people (my husband, and two kids) sitting on the bed saying, "Happy Mother's Day, it's time to get up!" Let me just say I was so tired, I opened my eyes looked at them and closed my eyes back (I really just wanted to lay there and keep on sleeping), I told them to give me just a minute and I would get up. True to my word, I got up and went into the kitchen where they were waiting on me. When I walked in I was then wished again, a Happy Mother's Day. What I say brought tears to my eyes. The table was set, with my breakfast of bacon, biscuits & gravy already on my plate (in the form of a face) and much needed coffee in one of my favorite coffee cups.

There was also flowers in a vase (they picked them while I was out with my mom and sister yesterday, then put them in a vase of water and stored them in a cardboard box at the end of Tyler's bed) and finally a homemade banner taped to the wall wishing me a Happy Mother's Day.

I know the banner is a little bit hard to see in this picture (they used crayons), at the top it says "I Love You" with lots of hearts and xoxo and flowers. Then Happy Mother's Day! Love, Tyler, Kaelyn and Chuck.

You see normally I get cards and a hug and then lunch out. Today was really special and it has lasted all day. They took me out for lunch, I was able to come home and take a nap (uninterrupted at that) and then my wonderful husband grilled steaks for our supper. After supper I was surprised with a store bought cheesecake (my husband doesn't make desserts) and them singing "Happy Mother's Day to You" to the tune of Happy Birthday. I have been wonderfully surprised all day and couldn't have asked for any better of a day. It still would have been a great day even if they had not done all that for me. I love my family so much and am so thankful for the husband that God has blessed me with. He has also blessed me with two wonderful children.

To all the Mom's I wish you a very heartfelt Happy Mother's Day! May God bless each of you.
