Mothers Day

Monday, May 12, 2014
Mothers Day was fantastic. It started by being woken up by my two favorite guys, and breakfast in bed, and a little robin's egg blue box from Tiffany and Co.

The blue box held a pretty silver anchor necklace. My boys know me well. : )

We had a great morning at church. I stayed for second service to be guest services director while Andrew took P home for lunch and a nap. At least that was the plan. Perry had other plans for nap time, as in not taking one. Oh well. After we quit trying to get him to nap we loaded up in the car and headed over the mountain to grandmother(s) house. We got to go spent some time with Mommyteen and Papaw and Grandma. I am so thankful for our precious grandmothers and my amazing mother in law. They mean the world to us.

And I am so thankful for our little boy and that I get to be his mommy. It is so much more fun and amazing (and sometimes challenging) than I could have ever imagined.

On a funny and very nerdy note, Kristen messaged me this picture while I was at church Sunday morning. It made my day.

Housework and mommy duties didn't get a whole day reprieve since I was leaving on a work trip today. So we got to spend last night getting the house in order, finishing unpacking the last few things from vacation, and get things organized for the week. And now I am sitting here writing this recap from my hotel room in DC (well technically Potomac, MD...which is slightly less exotic) where I will be for a meeting the next two days. I miss my baby boy, but know he is being loved on by grandparents, Julia and his daddy. I miss Andrew too...but know he can take care of himself pretty well.

And as I sit here writing about Mothers Day, my heart is breaking for a sweet mommy and her family at our church who were in an absolutely terrible car accident this afternoon. One of their sweet babies has passed away and two others are in critical condition. I cannot even fathom what they are going through and just cannot stop thinking about them and praying for peace and healing. Please keep them in your prayers.
