Happy Mother's Day!
This is our first Mother's Day that Tommy, our 6 1/2 year old son has been fully engaged in making this a special day for me. It is so fun to see children enjoy days like this. He jumped on the bed at 6:30 this morning and handed me my Mother's Day card. Then, with a huge smile on his face, he announced that he and Dad had made my favorite-- cheesy eggs! He was so proud that they had "kept their secret" from me all week. We enjoyed a brief cuddle in bed and then were called to breakfast by my wonderful husband.
Once downstairs, I was greeted by another card, this one from my husband and a beautiful orchid corsage that my boys had picked up for me to wear to church. I haven't had a corsage since the High School Prom. Tommy led us in a prayer together, remembering to pray for his new "big brother" and we had a yummy meal.
As we got dressed for church, Tommy decided that he needed to wear a tie today since it was such a special occasion! :-) So, off he went to church with his leather flip flop sandles, khaki short, short sleeved white button-down shirt and a pastel tie! What a sight. That's what passes for formal here in the south. lol
I am especially blessed today and have a real peace about the weeks and months to come as we prepare to welcome another sweet boy into our family. I pray that he is well and happy today and that we will see him soon.
Happy Mother's Day to all! Angie
