(and by woke up I mean I ran back to my bed when I heard a minor stampede coming up the stairs)
to a wonderful Mother's Day surprise.
English muffins with butter, peanut butter and jelly,
Yogurt with raspberries,
and three cute kids.
(Kid #2 has crawled under the covers next to me and gone back to sleep.)
Then at church Carolyn presented me with a coupon book of things she wanted to give me.
A back rube
Take out trash
I'll take it.
(I hope the fish is a drawing....)
After a chock-full rest of the morning and afternoon, the kids returned from a fishing trip with their uncle.
Bennett and my nephews had brought me beautiful old water bottles full of
Ethan yelled, "WAIT!"
He excitedly reached into his jeans pocket,
dug around a bit,
and pulled out...
a handful of something.
"I got you flowers!!!!"
Yes he did.
And those flowers and my water bottles of weeds are the most beautiful gifts I've ever received.
Then I had the blessing of making dinner for my mom, my mother in law and my sister in law....some of the neatest moms I know.
The kids ran around and
we all stuffed ourselves and
we talked and
we enjoyed the spring weather.
I just have to tell you....
I am a pretty lucky mom.
Pretty darn lucky.
