Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there, no matter how you became a mother. We've had bio mothers in our lives, we've had adoptive mothers join our lives and we've had mothers of the heart in our lives. We've been richly blessed with grandmothers that we loved dearly and are now gone. So this day brings many emotions for me.
To celebrate, Nathan and the kids spoiled me rotten all day long beginning with breakfast in bed-which Nathan actually does every single morning for me to dinner and cake and ice cream. I received calls from the kids not with us and that made my day. And of course my baby tried to outshine them all by giving me a gift from the heart. He often feels that there isn't much he can do to impress me with four people going before him. Well, this year he did something none of them have done before. He knows I love the song Blackbird by the Beatles and learned to play it just for me. Perfect! (Barb I know you are heading to Ireland today, but I just have to get a video clip for you so if you read this-remind me when you get back)
Life is good and being a Mom is part of what makes my life so incredibly good.
