The Perfect Weekend
Anyone who knows me knows that I am not the sappy, emotional type. To be honest I have been focusing and working on being more emotional (it only seems right for a mom to be emotional and all teary eyed). Well I think for Mother's Day my husband and children set out to bring down the emotional flood gates. This has been one of the best holidays I've had. The weekend was filled with so many great moments. Lets start with the gifts. In the past I have not been a great gift-giver, as a result of that I expect to reap what I have sown, or lack there of. About Feb. I decided I would change with my gift-giving and hope for better gifts also. (I know you're not supposed to do things like that out of expectations, but you gotta start somewhere). I know many of you ladies need diamonds, pearls, cars and the such but none of that was on my list. On mother's day I got the lovely scrapbook bag I have been eyeing. It holds just about everything I need for scrappin' sessions away from home, all in a nice organized fashioned. I also got tons of bath and body works smell goods, and all this time I thought my husband had selective hearing. My wonderful in-laws gave me not one but TWO gift certificates to the spa. "Lord, I really thank you for my in-laws. They are the best a girl could ask for." So the gifts were only the tip of the iceberg. Unlike previous mother's days, I got the chance to spend time with my mom, and sisters without feeling rushed to move on to the next thing on the agenda. As I get older I'm realizing the importance of taking time to enjoy the special moments that I have with the special people in my life. And did I mention that I didn't have to lift a finger to do anything all weekend! What a weekend! So to all the mother's that had a less than perfect mother's day, I pray that next year will be better, and my husband teaches classes on being the perfect husband.....he's pretty much got it down....well most of the time anyway.
