Happy Mother's Day

I love Mother's Day! Probably because I am a Mother and therefore get treated special all day long. A guilt free pass to having to help with dishes, change diapers, make dinner, or eat healthy! The gifts are wonderful as well. What says Mother's Day better than toilet paper tubes, paper plates, hand prints, messy paintings, and flowers of all kinds! This is just some of what I received this year. Brynlee also brought home a hand print flower on a paper plate made into a wall hanging from church. It is hanging in my kitchen at this very moment.
Probably the best gift was that Jake didn't have church meetings Sunday morning. He's in the Bishopric of our ward, so that leaves me to get myself and the 3 girls ready for church by 8:30am. So, having him home before church made for a much less stressful morning! We even had a moment to snap a few pictures! Jake also made me breakfast complete with a cup full of dandelions freshly picked by the girls and on Saturday I got to go pick out some hanging flower baskets and flowers for pots. Our porch is now nice a springy!

I am so grateful that I can be a mother, especially to these 3 sweet girls. Some days can be long, but the years go quickly it seems. I look forward to many more years of hand print flowers and toilet paper tube crafts. Why is it that those things are so much more precious than diamonds or pearls? Happy Mother's Day to all you Mom's! Especially to all the Mom's in my life!

Your porch is adorable... especially with those 3 girls on it. I didn't know you were a lone woman on Sundays. Bless your heart. You deserved a great Mother's Day. Sure miss ya!
