Mother’s Day Recap

I had a wonderful Mother’s Day. Instead of gifts Elijah did all my chores for this week (my birthday week!) so I don’t have laundry, cleaning or grocery shopping to do. It was the perfect week long gift.

We spent a quiet day at home. I had worked the night before so Elijah woke up early and a breakfast of biscuits with sausage gravy and mimosas was waiting for me when I walked in. I slept a few hours then was up in time for another home made meal. We finished the evening off with strawberry pie, a total favorite of mine, and had a nice early bedtime. It truly was a perfect day. The only thing I had to do was open the fancy, $13, bottle of wine we had with dinner. I am so grateful to have such a loving, serving family.

    Glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day, Moo. I hope you know that your dad thinks you are a terrific mother, and hasn't lost your blog completely. I found it on my bookmarks today, and was reminded, as usual, of my total lack of father's responsibility. But you're still stuck with me–so there! We are in Hemet–our mission call comes this week. Aaron and Arianne's baby, Smith Mark Johnson, came last week, and we were in West Hills, CA for that. Went O.K., with the usual this and that. I think we are going to Toulouse, France–or Paris–so start your planning. Love, Dad
