Feels like home to me..

My feeble attempt to get a pic of Alex after being at church all morning.

I got some of that much needed "me" time, that I was talking about,today! I told Jared I think Mother's Day should be monthly and he wasn't that into it. I don't know why??? He woke up while I lounged a bit. He fed and changed both boys while I gave myself a manicure, showered, make-up'd and dressed. Thankfully I have a husband that is helpful all year round but I still thoroughly enjoyed playing the Mother's Day card today. The boys even gave me the gift of a long nap. Jared also complimented this by giving me beautiful flowers, both to plant and put in a vase and cooking dinner. As I say often I am a blessed woman.

Baby dedication went wonderfully and I felt unbelievably overwhelmed to be able to be in church today. It was like pulling on an old, comfy sweatshirt. It is where I feel at home. It is my constant. It is where I can be me and worship the God who loves me for being who I am. My pastor had an amazing message about Mother's. It was so encouraging and it felt like a stamp of approval on all that we do on a day to day basis. It was like a huge pat on the back which is what mother's day should be about I guess. A confirmation that you are in fact appreciated. I look at all of the Moms around me and feel so thankful that they are in my life. I believe that they have all helped shape me into the Mother I am today. Thanks ladies, you know who you are.

I appreciate your blog and hearing your words of praise for our Lord for all His many blessings. You are a great mom~ happy belated mother's day!

glad you had a great Mother's Day! In the post before this one, you wrote something that hit home for me (about how we won't always be in the center of their world) That is true and I am trying to focus on that. We only have a short time before they figure it out. :) It's definitely hard to handle some days but I'm thankful that I am able to be their mom.
