A Heart Full of Love

It wasn't until I became a mother that I was able to really appreciate my mom. I am so thankful for my mom and extra thankful that I am a Momma.
Here's a long ago picture of me and my sweet mom.

This Mother's Day was really wonderful. My family made me feel loved.
Here's a bit about my day: My husband woke me up and brought me coffee and an omelet for breakfast. I got up and found the living room and kitchen decorating a bit with red and white streamers and red and white balloons (for anyone that knows that we decorate crazy for birthdays, this was a tamed down version and it was really quite pretty). I also found beautiful red roses on the kitchen table. I got myself and Elisabeth ready for church. This means that Seth got all of the boys ready: fed, dressed and clean. That is always an undertaking when we are trying to get somewhere! We all went to church. Then we came home and relaxed. I spent some time to myself and the boys (including dad) made chocolate chip cookies. Jonathan and David delivered cookies and milk to me (Thomas was napping). That night, Seth made Fajitas (which were very yummy).

Here are some of my special pictures from Mother's Day:

I never realized until seeing the photo of you with your mom how much sweet Elisabeth looks like you.

You are almost identical. Now we know what a lovely young woman Elisabeth will grow up to be.

Happy Belated Mother's Day!

Wow! That picture with your mom is precious. As is each of the pictures of you with your children, I love the way you listen so intently to everything your boys have to say when they are talking with you. It's a wonderful example to follow! I can't believe how big Elsie is getting. She is just too cute for words and such a happy little thing. She is always smiling! What a joy!!!!!
BTW - I want homemade fajitia's. That sounds WONDERFUL!
