I have a confession to make.
I had a not so good, very bad week.
If you talked to me at all, you heard about it in part, I'm sure.
Last Sunday was Mother's Day, and I felt like I got jipped.
We had a very busy weekend planned which included 2 birthdays which we celebrated out of town.
I knew that it wouldn't leave much time on Sunday for Mother's Day celebrating, but we did plan on taking my Mother and Mother-in-Law out for Lunch.....and we did.
......and that was it.
I didn't get a card. I didn't get a gift.
(apart from some hand-picked dandelions from the kiddos and the handmade art from Sam's school)
which I LOVE, by the way...BUT
I was feeling quite unappreciated
That's embarrassing to admit...because I realize how that makes me sound.
I realize that it sounds shallow....or needy...or spoiled.
I know that...but it is still the way I felt....
Yesterday we FINALLY got to have our Mother's Day tradition.
For the past 6 years, Randy and the kids take me to Stuart's Landscaping, and we pick out flowers (and more recently veggies and herbs too) Then the kids help Daddy plant them when we get home.
But, guess what? I'm not even a huge fan of the flowers.
(don't tell Randy.... :)
What made me HAPPY....Finally HAPPY....and appreciated....and LOVED was captured in the following set of pictures.
1. You'll see the pictures are self explanatory.
2. You need to know, RANDY was the one behind the camera....and he snapped away willingly...even eagerly. this is HUGE. and the BEST gift I could ever ask for. Oh, I had FUN editing these!
(okay, so this one I took)
LOVE is ALL YOU NEED!
(LOTS and LOTS of LOVE)
