Happy Mother's Day!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family.  On Friday my mother helped my children smuggle bacon home so that they could use it to make me breakfast in bed.  I caught them being sneaking as we walked into our house and as I asked what they were hiding my 15 yr old son told me to mind my own business. I was shocked that he thought it was okay to say that to me.  Just as I started to get irritated by his mouth, he began to apologize and explained that I was ruining their surprise for me.  I quickly calmed down.  Later that night my 8 yr old daughter told me that on Sunday(Mother's Day) I was not allowed to get out of bed until they said it was okay.

I love my children!  They did a wonderful job making secret plans.  Although I knew some of the plans, I didn't know what to expect.  I was greeted at 8 am with a tray full of food.  As well as a beautiful vase of flowers the girls picked from the yard.  My breakfast was an omelette(eggs and cheese), bacon, saltine crackers and honey, toast, an apple and a coke.  I did ask to trade the coke for a small glass of milk and I had way too much food to finish, so I shared.

About an hour later the doorbell rang.  To my surprise there was a lady standing there holding a beautiful bouquet of flowers.  My husband sent me flowers.  Since he is deployed, the flowers came as a huge surprise.  I am so grateful for my husband and all the sacrifices he makes to keep us safe.  I love that even though he is so far away he was able to find a way to brighten my Mother's Day.  I love you Charlie and miss you very much.  Thank you for all that you do.

  1. Almost forgot. Only my 11 yr old daughter knows how to cook bacon. I was kinda scared.
