bday and mother's day weekend

It was such a great weekend all around!   We started the celebrating on Friday night with a fish fry at the golf club, balloons and cupcakes.  Saturday morning Bo took the kids to get donuts and came back with a large Diet Coke for me.  Happy Birthday to ME.  That man takes care of me!   We went to Babes for lunch with my little family.  When we got home, Bo told me I had a massage appt and off I went.  It was fabulous and always a welcomed treat.  I got home in time to shower and get dressed up for a date night with my man.  We ate and enjoyed the fun atmosphere of the area.  Perfect weather and a perfect night out!  Thank you for everything, Bo.

Mother's Day is today.  I was sitting back watching my kids play this morning and just thanked the Lord for a few people in my life:

 First of all for Abby and Hunter.  What a blessing it is to be their mom.  I can't imagine my life without them.

Secondly,   I thanked Him for my mom who has always been and continues to be such an amazing example of a Godly woman.  She never complains or speaks unkind words about anyone.  She loves my dad and her family unconditionally.  She is truly a Proverbs 31 woman.  I am so thankful for her.

Next,  I thanked the Lord for my sister.  What an amazing testimony she is to many other moms who have babies in Heaven.  She is a mom to three pretty special children and such a great example of faith and grace.

The fourth person I thanked the Lord for was my incredible sister in law who is about to become a mom to a little boy in South Korea.  He will be here any day.  Love Meredith's heart and willingness to be open to the Lord and what He has told their family to do.  My little nephew is about to meet an amazing woman and call her MOM!

And then I thanked God for all of the moms that I walk through life with on a daily basis.  These are moms that I have cried with, laughed with and just been silly with.  I love raising my children next to them and couldn't do it without them.  Each and every day they are there right by my side.  Thanks!

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there.  I love you and know today that YOU are special!

Taken with my iphone so not the best but pretty cute subjects.
