Good morning! Pour a cup of coffee or tea and join me for a few minutes of cozy. Today I am drinking my favorite coffee with my favorite creamer from my favorite mug. Nothing fancy, I'm afraid. Quite mundane. Comfortable. Me. I am sitting in our family room, enjoying the sun streaming in through the windows that face the lake. Soon it will be warm enough to enjoy my morning coffee outside. Not quite yet. But soon.
Steve had my Jeep all serviced and cleaned for me! So we got dressed and took it for a ride. Real clothes. Washed hair. Powder, blush, and lip gloss. I am really on a roll!
Yesterday, my four amazing children celebrated me with a beautiful, delicious luncheon for Mother's Day. (Rescheduled from last week due to the evil cold.) My friends, it was so special. So perfect. So bittersweet. Perhaps those of you with older children will relate. You see, as a mom, we are the ones who plan, prepare, organize. All those lunches and birthdays and holidays we celebrated served as models for our children. And as sad as we are when our little ones grow, we are rewarded when that love comes right back to us through the hearts and hands of our children.
Madison, Nicolas, Peyton, Christopher, Rhett, Kyrstin, and Flynn planned and prepared this beautiful luncheon yesterday, and I was so happy. I was happy to see them work together, happy to see them laughing together, happy that they remembered all my favorite foods! I was happy. Yes, Mother's Day looks different now. Gone are the homemade cards and breakfast in bed, followed by soccer games and ice cream. Yet, I am not sad. Those beautiful memories are tucked inside my heart. Right where they belong. These moments are here. Right now. And perfect.
Have a wonderful day, my friends!
Thanks for visiting!
