Happy Mother's Day!

Since a good majority of the people that I know are mothers, I wanted to take a moment and acknowledge what a terrific and difficult job it is to be a mother. It truly is a tough job but gives ample reward.

My morning began with the most beautiful little bed-head girl peering up over the side of my bed saying, "Happy Mother's Day, Mom!" Then, she disappeared for a while and came back with a hand-made card - my first of this sort and I'm sure I will have it forever. It's precious.

I am so lucky to be a mom. It wasn't ever something I was dying to do but my life has been so blessed so much by this little person who follows me around everywhere. I just love her so much! When you have a child, it's as if you yourself are born again, as a new person. It's that different. It's that great.
My beautiful Mother's Day gift was this:
Yes, I know what I said about the hanging baskets but seriously, it's this just absolutely divine? I'm going to put some of those water crystals in it and hopefully prolong it's life. That's the plan.

I LOVE that second photo. I was looking at the first one, thinking "Oh, how pretty!" and then the second one made me snort out loud.

Happy Mother's Day!
