Happy Mother's Day to Me
Portrait of me. By John.
I think this is the first time he has drawn a picture of me.
I love it!
I had a lovely MOther's Day, and I hope you did, too.
Nathan called early to wish me a happy mother's day. Then Hannah brought me breakfast in bed (an egg sandwich on a toasted bagel.) Then I got to open all my cool gifts! A necklace, a bracelet, a couple cards and pictures, a few "good for one free ..." coupons, and a sweet photography book from Nathan.
Being a mom is the best!
I stayed in bed all morning reading, and Sydney brought me hot chocolate chip cookies in bed. Mmm! Yea for kids who can safely operate the oven (with supervision!)
I wore my new paper bead and yarn jewelry to church, where I was given some chocolates and flowers.
All in all a good day.
I sent my mom and my mom-in-law lei's for mother's day. I hope they wore them to church. Mom? I love you! Happy Mother's Day!
Here is my favorite poem for Mother's Day. It reminds me of my mom.
You are the trip I did not take;
You are the pearls I cannot buy;
You are my blue Italian lake.
You are my piece of foreign sky.
