I’m not sure where to begin, other than to say I am truly so thankful for my family. Being a mom is certainly a gift, and my heart aches on this special day for those who can’t have kids or those who have lost kids. I can see how a holiday meant to honor moms can be so wonderful, yet so painful to so many.
For weeks now, I have walked past this sign hung next to the desk of my second born:
Therefore, finding this next to my breakfast plate was not a surprise, but it sure was wonderful:
It’s truly these precious homemade cards and gifts that melt my heart. I treasure them.
Breakfast was a wonderful quiche, fruit salad, and fresh-squeezed orange juice, along with coffee and real cream.
To be honest, I would have cringed if I saw this quiche when I was a kid. However, my kids loved it so much I had to fight them for the last piece. Seriously! My pickiest eater even begged me for 2 bites of my piece. I think we are adding quiche to our list of breakfast favorites! (Excellent job, Mr. Yeh!)
Our day included church, some fun picture-taking with my kids, a family walk to the horse stables, and I even got to play Boggle with Allison while waiting for dinner! Absolutely lovely. (Pictures with the kids to come!)
Dinner: filet mignon, bacon-wrapped asparagus, fresh bread, and homemade peach ice cream and strawberries over angel food cake for dessert. Amazing.
I am so thankful God has allowed me to walk this journey of being mom. I am thankful for His mercies and grace that are new every morning! I am thankful for Allison , Natalie, Sierra, and Malachi!!
