this mother's day
~I woke up Sunday and had breakfast delivered for me and baby girl. Along with a frozen coffee just for me.
~I got to sleep in past 7 and my usual early bird slept in till 10. I got to sit and eat my delivered breakfast in peace and quiet.
~Had two very sweet cards waiting for me on my nightstand. One had an Outback gift card in it. Only a few will understand why that is hilarious and the perfect representation of our marriage.
~Heard a wonderful Mother's Day message at church. It was a nice reminder that I am a awesome wife and mother, and to stop continuously comparing myself to what society tells me I should be doing, looking like, or needing.
~I am waiting for a Mother's Day gift that I'm super excited about. Yes, he actually is getting me something, but it would not be available till next week, and it's not a "oh, I forgot and it won't be here till next week" kinda thing. I'll post about it when it gets here.
~Had a relaxing afternoon and did of all things, sewed a little something for Olivia. I was in the mood to sew and that's all I had to work on.
~My wonderful in-laws came down and we ate a dinner completely cooked by my hubby. He stuffed us with grilled fish, veggies, and a ton of other yummy stuff. I did clean up the dishes because I was starting to twitch not doing anything all day.
~We ate this for dessert and it was divine. One of my new favorite desserts.
~I started looking at Mother's Day in a different light. This year (even though I was) it wasn't about being pampered and celebrated, I spent most of the day celebrating the fact I am blessed to be called "mama." Last year, I guess I was so sleep deprived, I didn't think much of the day. This year however, I realized what a true gift motherhood is and how thankful I am to be a mother. That in its self, is the best Mother's Day gift I have received.
