My Mothers Day

Mothers Day was so nice this year. I woke up and found this sitting on the counter in the kitchen

It's no secret that I love to cook and spend time in my kitchen. My clever son, Tyler, must have been paying peticular attention to a few things that needed replacing. We tried to grill some chicken a week ago and no one could find the tongs, so he bought me some new ones, the cheese grater had a crack in it but we still used it, well he took note and there was a new grater, and the thing I loved the most was the new whisk. Imagine getting excited over a new whisk, am I pathetic? You should have seen the old one though. Tyler did bring up a good point in saying, "Well, Mom these things aren't that expensive to replace". I don't know what's wrong with me, I use my kitchen stuff till it's completely dead. Pretty sad. Anyhow, I was thrilled to have these new kitchen toys.

Nikki and Becca bought me this cute new purse. So sweet, I love it. I've wanted a red one for a long, long time.

Later the kids made me dinner. Grilled chicken, baked potatoes, corn on the cob and my very favorite, watermelon. That is my all time favorite dinner. I love my kids so much and want to thank them for making my day special.

Mother's Day hasn't ever been my favorite holiday. I've always sort of thought of it as Mother's Guilt Day and try not to set my expectations too high. As a Mother I feel that often I've fallen short or lost my patience more than I should and think of so many things I could have done better. I am so grateful for wonderful kids that know the real me and see whats in my heart. Thank heaven for family cause for me it really is all that matters!


  1. So glad you were spoiled! You deserve it! Not only are you a great mom, but an AWESOME grandma! My kids are so lucky!

  2. Ahh that was so sweet of Tyler! Really! Those are nice little gestures. And yes, I love your purse. What will you do when all the little birdies fly the nest? You will be one lost mama. LOL....hugs...
