Flowers and Such...

Christy over at Real Life Adventures gave me eflowers today! Thanks girl!

My husband gave me REAL flowers, and the greeter at church gave me a bright red Gerbera Daisy. I'm feeling blessed with blooms.

My own Mom and my Mother in-law are two very special blossoms in my life. They are SO much more than just 'Mom' to me. They are two friends, confidantes, mentors, encouragers and cheerleaders in my life. Saying a cliche "Happy Mother's Day" greeting doesn't even begin to convey my feelings regarding them. Mom and Mom, I love you SO much. Thank you for being who and what you are in my life.

I'm also blessed to have my Bubbalu. He's too little to wish me a verbal Happy Mother's Day greeting. But every time he snuggles with me, lays his head down on my shoulder, or stares into my eyes with his mischievous sparkle, he tells me.

My husband tells me every time he helps around the house without being asked, bringing me an extra blanket in bed when I'm cold (even though he'll be roasting soon), or just smiling at me when I'm holding Bubbalu. I KNOW he thinks I'm an awesome Mom. He tells me this often. We both know I make mistakes, have hard days, crabby days, or just plain lazy days. That isn't the measure of a good mother. I love my Bubbalu, and am raising him in the best way I possibly can.

To all you Mama's out there, a sincere and heartfelt Happy Mother's Day to you. I pray you have been blessed.

"Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it."
[Proverbs 22:6]
