A perfectly normal, quiet Mother's Day. What more could I possibly have asked for?
We have had a VERY long week in our house, involving sick kids, MRI's for Mr.1 (scheduled, so no big drama) and general havoc.
It was so nice to wake up this morning (albeit after a largely sleepless night last night with Mr.1) and have a cup of coffee in bed!
We went out for brunch with family, we caught up with everyone and took the obligatory family photos, we drank more coffee (a staple in any family outing!). I chilled out with my kids and watched a DVD, I took Miss.4 to a birthday party (at Chipmunks, so easy work for me) and I got to have coffee with my best friend.
It's days like today, so lacking in drama and issues and busy-ness that make me feel blessed and peaceful.
It's a light at the end of the tunnel, after a long week and not enough sleep, I remember why I do it, and if I can walk away from anything on Mother's Day, I am really glad it is that.
Today, I feel thankful for happy, generally healthy kiddies, a hard-working husband and a great friends & family network.
A very Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there, young & old, new & more weathered, you are all awesome and do what you can, and I think you are swell.
