I have the best kids ever. I had a great mother's day!!!! How about you? My middles made me some of the best artwork ever and even helped out.... a little. And my oldest- well she just takes the cake.
Let me preface this for you.....
I love a certain online jewelry company and I stalk her website waiting for giveaways. If you are wondering who.. I'll never tell. Only kidding. It is http://www.thevintagepearl.blogspot.com/!
She has the most beautiful pieces that can of course, be personalized with the kids' names. I have stopped myself on more than one occasion from buying something, just because I am ever striving towards being a better steward of my money (I know- yada yada- I might ask for something for my b-day)- but the other day (while stalking) I saw the most beautiful pearl earrings. They were dainty and pretty, maybe not exactly me, but beautiful. I thought maybe just maybe I would indulge (on that last word- I hear Beth Moore does a whole study on indulging). But I thought better of it and moved on.
So, imagine my surprise when my daughter presented me with the most beautiful, dainty, pearl earrings that she made herself!!!
Now, I do not know about your house, but I usually might have an inkling as to what the kids are planning. But I had no idea and she did not know about the vintage pearl or what I was thinking about.
The earrings are beautiful and she presented them in a heart shaped box and I hope I never lose them, so I never forget this day and I do lose things, so I will have to be careful.
This day was so great, I almost forgot that my youngest seems to be coming down with something and my favorite elder at church thought I might be prego- and I am so not.
Happy Mother's Day and let's be honest- Now we will just start planning Father's Day.
