Spoiled Mama



















Today I was spoiled from the moment I woke up to the moment the kids went to bed, which was a huge contrast to last year's Mother's Day  near disaster.

The only thing that kept it from being a total disaster were dear friends.  Last year Boyd woke up on Mother's Day morning extremely sick.  Then during church, when Gavin went up to sing to the congregation with the other primary children, he had a total break down.  This led to me carrying him off the stand screaming, Then I followed with my own breakdown.  Luckily, I had some very dear friends jump in to save the day, by bring me flowers and taking my children to the park.  Then my dear friend's husband came down and made the dinner Boyd could not prepare. It is funny to look back on now, but I could not even post about it last year because I was so upset about it.

Today was so wonderful.  Boyd and the kids made a delicious breakfast and Boyd made Chilean sea bass with wild rice and roasted vegetables for dinner.  It was so delicious.  I also enjoyed some beautiful flowers.

I love my boys, all three.  I hope and pray that I can be the mother they deserve.  I am grateful I have that opportunity. My mother was such an amazing mom and I am constantly thinking about what I think she would do when I don't know what to do with my own children.  Lately, I feel I have been getting upset with my children too much.  I don't ever remember my mother yelling at me when I was young.  Did you ever yell at me mom?  I hope my kids remember how much I love them, always.  They are so precious.  I am happy to be their mom.  Thank you to my own mom for her unconditional love and to my mother-in-law for raising my sweet husband.


Happy Mother's Day!
