I hope your Mother's Day was a wonderful as mine. I felt so much love from my family yesterday. I don't want you to think that I don't every day; however, yesterday they made sure to do all the things that make me feel extra special.
Matt stayed up very late the night before to make me some very yummy cheesecake. He was up till almost 3am! When we got up he made me a breakfast of farm fresh sausage and (store bought) eggs. Unfortunately, my egg was spoiled. We didn't know that till I took my 3rd bite and realized it just was not right. I told him people will ask what I got for Mother's Day and I'll say "food poisoning", rofl! In the midst of there somewhere, Jon had given me his gifts. It was 2 cookie sheets! I have needed these for so long! My only cookie sheet had gotten ruined. What a huge blessing! What a perfect gift coming from our little cook.
We headed off to church, everyone exhausted, but we made it. :) Good service and nice friends. God is good.
On the way home we planned on having Matt grill but he was too exhausted. We ended up going to the Mongolian BBQ. It's so fun making your own special food creations and watching people cook it in front of you. Very fun!
We got home and had some fabulous cheesecake. It was then that Lyshie gave me the card she made me and told me what she was going to make me with daddy's help - a wind chime! I LOVE wind chimes! I can't wait to see it done! I was also told by Matt that he is going to make me a greenhouse! It will be about 6x8 feet. I'm so excited!
Last but def. not least, here is what was in the card I got from my fabulous daughter yesterday. I cried at more than one place.
she made it herself and here is what it said page by page (minus the cover page).
The air is sweet
and filled with flowers
I hope that May

Happy Mother's Day (we love you!). It then has a picture of a cake, flowers, a heart and balloon.
I can't think God enough for my children and my husband. They are so dear to me. I hope you all had as fabulous of a Mother's Day as I did. It's so good knowing I'm loved.
