mama’s day.

Me and my mama...circa 1980!

Excuse me while I dust off my keyboard…it’s been awhile since I last posted! But what better day to come out of hibernation than Mother’s Day!? Oh how I love Mother’s Day! I never really understood Mother’s Day before I had my own children, but how could I? But now, NOW I realize what a gem of day it is. Flowers, accolades, special treatment, food, gifts, and an abundant helping of LOVE. It has the makings of a great holiday and I loved every bit of it. My celebration started on Friday night with dinner out with the husband to a super awesome spot in Midtown. Then, Saturday morning was pure bliss as I got to sleep in (well, 8:30 is as far as I could make it. This is a sure sign that I am getting old!) then I had the entire day all by myself!! I chose to spend the morning cleaning out the basement and unpacking the pile of boxes that have been untouched since we moved in. Yes, I realize that I spent my day off cleaning and organizing, but it was PERFECT! It made me so happy to finally feel like I was getting the house organized! (Lame, I know, but really, it was so great and good for my soul!). After several hours of working around the house I decided it was time for a little pampering, so I decided to get my nails done. The nail place was slammed so I “had” to sit in the pedicure spa chair for 45 minutes soaking my feet before someone was available to give me my pedicure. Yes please! Then I topped off the day with a bit of shopping and dinner. It was fantastic and I felt so refreshed coming home that evening. Yes, it is true that being a mama is hard work, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I am so grateful the Lord has entrusted me (and Bryson) to raise up 3 of His little people. What an honor! And what fun it is to be celebrated and to celebrate this incredible role! Happy Mother’s Day!!

Those who call me mama. (not Meyer's best picture, but at least everyone is looking in the general direction of the camera and not crying...yet!)
