I had such a wonderful Mother's Day! I feel like it lasted the entire weekend. Saturday we spent the day as a family doing yardwork and landscaping. It was tiring, but fun because we went totally off the grid. No computers, no bothering with cell phones or any of it. Just family time.
Sunday, my fantastic husband fixed me breakfast (that man can really cook!), and my kids got me a $50 gift card to Starbucks (yum!). And I got a surprise phone call from my brother who has been out in Wyoming for the last three months filming his hunting show. It was so good to talk to him! After the kids and I vegged for a few hours, we got the house cleaned up and had my parents down, and one of my other brothers stopped by for a visit as well. We cooked steak and hot dogs on the grill and enjoyed the wonderful weather for a bit. Then Kati, my oldest, surprised me with a pedicure and a facial. My toes and my face feel so loved today!
I told my husband this was the best Mother's Day ever because we spent the entire weekend enjoying family time. No working on the computers for a change. I hadn't realized how badly we needed to reconnect, ya know? It's so easy to get caught up in the daily chores. The girls laughed with each other, instead of arguing. It was music to my ears to her them getting along so well.
I love Mother's Day. It reminds how lucky I truly am!
Moms, how'd you spend your special day? And what'd you all do for your own mother?
