Mother's Day

I had the best Mother's Day yet this year, it was so nice to have a relaxing day and let Jack take care of everything and me :) I mean, he normally does so much but today he wouldn't let me do ANYTHING that resembled work.  He woke up with the kids and got them dressed for 9am church, brought me breakfast in bed, and surprised me with a bouquet of bright, gorgeous flowers and two new books.  One is a parenting book I've been wanting and the other is a first edition hardbound of my favorite childhood book (my paperback is the same one I've had since I was a kid and is pretty tattered).  The girls had picked out a card all by themselves at the store and had drawn in it for me.  Jack and I laughed over the caption on the card that says "To the best Godmother" haha.  We had a nice morning in church with talks about mothers and Utah truffle bars handed out to all of the mothers, a nice lunch together, and had our traditional Sunday movie day, eating popcorn and watching a movie.  I made fresh chocolate chip cookies (Jack tried to prevent me, but knows I love to bake) then I relaxed on the lovesac in the basement and watched Jane Eyre and ate warm cookies while he put Legos together with the kids.  We ended the night with a Friends marathon and Jack set up our massage table and gave me an hour-long full-body massage.  I feel asleep one happy Mama. I'm so grateful for my family and this job that requires so much but also gives so much.  I'm also so thankful for the family and friends I have that are amazing examples of what I want to be as a Mom.
