On Saturday, I spent the entire day away with friends scrapbooking. Little Brianna’s album needed a lot of work so I was happy to be able to sit uninterrupted and get some of that done. It was nice to be with other women and connect. I think it is so important for us to carve out time for friends and ourselves even when we feel the most busy. Toward the end of the day my throat was really bothering me and I wasn’t feeling myself.
This morning I woke up feeling horrible so spent a lot of time in bed trying to get better. My sweet girls brought me breakfast in bed like they do every Mother’s Day. The girls get so excited about special days like this and its so sweet. They made me a happy face pancake. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to swallow much but I was happy to have a warm cup of coffee and juice.
I got such wonderful gifts. There is a shop in my town that I love so much called Mother Earth. There are all sorts of gems and earthy items and a few weeks ago I spotted these beautiful aspen handmade jewelry boxes. I was so surprised to see that was my gift this morning! Isn’t it beautiful?
Then my daughter in college sent home this beautiful necklace from Chinatown with her boyfriend today. I missed not being able to spend the day with her but it was so sweet of her to find a way to reach me. Next weekend she comes home and it will be nice to have all of our girls here again together.
