Happy Mother's Day

I hope you all had a wonderful day. Mine was great! I felt loved, cherished and spoiled lol. I didn't get diamonds or anything like that. However, what I got was much better! My hubby told me straight from his heart what a wonderful Mommy he thinks I am. If only I could see myself the way he sees me! Anna was so sweet she wished me a Happy Mothers Day in her sweet voice. And was so very affectionate and sweet. To top the day off I got to take a 2 hour nap with Anna. I know I was just on vacation but boy I needed that nap lol. After our nap we went to play at the soft play at the mall. It was a rainy day on and off and we knew the real playground would be soggy. While at the soft play we got to meet identical triplets! That was wild! I have never seen identical twins much less triplets. The funny thing is the mom wants to have more children but she is afraid of having a single. She said she wouldn't know what to do with just one. God bless for knowing what to do with three!

At church we had a nice Sunday School lesson. I didn't do a traditional one. We talked about 1 Kings 3:16-28. That is the story of the 2 prostitutes that were fighting over the baby and the king said well cut it in half. The story is typically used as a way of showing wisdom and a thought process that God would have us use. Because the king knew whoever would give up the child just so he could live must be the true mother. I taught it as an example of sacrifices a Mother will make for her children. That true mother would give her child to another woman just so he could live! I wanted the kids to know that Moms aren't perfect and Moms aren't always happy but we sacrifice almost daily for our children. I told them that even when we are sad or something is going on in our lives that is pulling us down we suck it up and keep going for our children. Most of what we do is for them! I asked them to tell their moms thank you for all of the sacrifices you make for me!

During the church service they played the video that was my idea! It was good. Everyone in the church seemed to love it. I wish my kids had been more animated and the street noise hadn't been so bad. All in all though it was great! Maybe next time I can be more involved in the details of it lol. All the mothers received flowers and they did some giveaways. It was a great morning. I had to sit by myself after the choir came down though. I was supposed to report to the nursery because they didn't have enough workers. My hubby didn't want me to miss all of the tributes to the Moms. He took my place in the nursery. Isn't he an amazing man!?!

Thank you Anna and Chris for making my day so special!
