Thank you. For reading what I write, for sharing life with me, for supporting me, for encouraging me. I feel so blessed today. I know I live a full life with many good things wrapped up in it. There are so many who don’t. I pray new things for them and I hope new life for them.
Mother’s Day is such a reminder that my life is way more than I ever imagined. I was actually overwhelmed at breakfast, by the love my guys showed me. They spoiled me, you know? And usually it’s me trying to find new ways to spoil them. I didn’t expect it. Not because I don’t think they can pull it off, but because I feel spoiled every day. I really do. Hugs and kisses from an adorable almost-four-year-old with freckles on his nose and a GREAT smile. Mischievious smirks and ‘I love you mom’ as my 7&1/2-year-old flies into his classroom on a school day (I wonder if he’ll mind if I walk him into class in grade 8 – do you think I can still get away with it then?). And mid-day phone calls and holding my husband’s hand as we drive out in the mornings to face the day.
I don’t ever want to expect more… I always want to be happy with what my guys give to me. I don’t ever want to hold them up to an ideal… I always want to be happy with who they are. Encourage them to more when needed, but love them for who they are.
I hope you had an AMAZING day today – whatever it brought to your life – whether you’re a mom or not. Blessings abundant on you!
