Mother's Day

I knew my family was planning something special for today. There had been lots of whispering and talking behind closed doors. My wonderful husband who does struggle with being creative, did a great thing. He got up at 6:00 a.m. this morning and went to Cracker Barrell to get me pecan pancakes. I had shared with him earlier in the week that these were a favorite of mine. This is a huge sacrifice for him - Tim loves to sleep, especially on a rainy Sunday morning. I am so blessed. At breakfast I opened my cards and there were such sweet words. Natalie and Nathan together did an acrostic using the letters in my name (I'll share later) and framed it. Nathan made a craft called a God's eye. It wasn't special because of any gifts received, but that they took the time to show me love. I have the best husband and kids in the world.

Her children rise up and call her blessed;her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women have done excellently,but you surpass them all.” Proverbs 31:28-29

So, so sweet! I got a dead mouse. I know you're really jealous of that!
