Mother's Day

I just realized I never blogged about Mother's Day! How could I be so thoughtless and crazy?! My parents sent me the beautiful flowers with a great little note about how awesome I am. They're good like that- always rooting for me.
Dale was gone the week before Mother's Day. I picked him up from the airport Saturday afternoon and he decided since we were down south, he wanted to take me to my favorite restaurant (CALIFORNIA PIZZA KITCHEN!) for Mother's Day. I was ALL over that. He also gave me this great card, again, telling me how awesome I am.
Brighton made this card for me in her nursery class at church. There's a cute little poem on the back. I'm such a dork, I nearly cried when she gave it to me. My very first Mother's Day card from one of my children. It's sporting itself on my fridge for most likely the next year!
While this has nothing really to do with Mother's Day, I thought I'd share. Dale had a work dinner last night. He's been so busy this week and felt bad that he hasn't been able to come home and spend much time with me. So, he brought me home some chocolate cake! The frosting got a little messed up from the box, but it still tastes yummy. This is my lunch today. Don't hate on me! I like cake. I eat pretty good most of the time, and I'm pregnant. I'm allowed a treat for lunch, don't you think?
And then I thought I'd share a little something about my own mother. She is AWESOME! Isn't she so beautiful? I'm so grateful to have such an amazing mother. She married my dad when I was only 6 years old- and she was only 21. Can you imagine being the mom to a 6 year old when you're 21? She was so brave. And she did an awesome job.
She's taught me so much in the past 19 years. She's the most thoughtful person I know. She was always trying to teach us to serve each other and others and to give thoughtful things to one another. She's beautiful and has a great sense of style. She's a great decorator and has helped me so much with my own house. She's a motivator and just a super spectacular woman!
But most of all she is my best friend. As I raise my own children, I'm trying to be like my mom. She's such a great example to me of pure love and unselfishness. Thanks mom for being so great! Words just aren't enough.
