Mother's Day

On Mother's Day, I woke up to Mae rushing in our room to exclaim "Happy Mother's Day mommy" which of course was terribly sweet, but as Jovie was startled awake and began to cry in the room next to us, I realize Mae is about 1 1/2 earlier than her usual time of waking up. I brought Jovie into bed with me and while I got precious snuggles with tiger baby, my big girl went with her daddy into the kitchen to make me a special pancake breakfast! Mae is very tender hearted and loves to help and serve others. 
I am so grateful every day that I am given the gift of raising these three very amazing children. 
My favorite part of the day was going with my mom and Mae to get pedicures. Maebelle has never been to get her nails done and has discovered she LIKES it. A lot. She has the cutest little feet, that blue with polka-dots just makes that much cuter. The pleasure I had seeing her so excited was even better than the incredible treat of a pedicure. I loved this special time with just my mom and Mae. It was perfect. 
Cody made sure I had delicious meals all day. We sat outside and enjoyed our little family out on the deck. It is my favorite spot. I love being in the middle of all of the trees, soaking up the early summer night. The temperature is just perfect right now and the sounds of the birds were beginning to be joined by the crickets. Magical. 
These precious three children call me mommy. Mommy. One word that quite literally brings me to my knees. Because I recognize every day what has taken place for that single word to be true. This life with them in it is sweet and full and I am the happiest momma in the world. 

I hope everyone had as lovely a Mother's Day celebrating the blessings of motherhood and most especially to my own momma who is an example of the fiercest kind of love and continual encouragement in my life.  I love you momma!
