Before I could even get out of bed, he came in with a yummy breakfast and coffee for me. It was so sweet and breakfast in bed was a great way to start the day.
Church was great and afterwards, we headed over to my sister's house to have brunch with my mom.
After brunch we came home and I spent probably a good hour or two outside planting and working in my garden.....alone. It was wonderfully relaxing and exactly what I wanted to be doing on this special day. I had seeds that I wanted to plant, some weeding that needed to be done and being outside in the sunshine is one of my favorite things.
While we were cooking our hot dogs, Judah was being so sweet with Paisley. Whenever she would get too close to the fire pit, Judah would gently take her hand and lead her away. They don't always get along very well but, when they do, it blesses me so much.
Thanks to my husband, it really was a perfect Mother's Day. I feel so incredibly blessed.
And, Happy Mother's Day to you, if you are a Momma.
You are making a difference and the small things that you do everyday matter. Your home is your mission field and every little thing that you do, is building your legacy and your story. Lately, I'm constantly reminding myself that I need to strive to be the kind of person that I want my kids to be when they are grown.
Who can find a virtuous woman? She is far more precious than jewels...
Strength and honor are her clothing, and she can laugh at the time to come.
She opens her mouth with wisdom, and loving instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the activities of her household and is never idle.
Her sons rise up and call her blessed.
He husband also praises her:
Many women are capable, but you surpass them all!
Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord will be praised.
~Proverbs 31:10, 25-30
