I thought Show & Tell Friday would be an ideal time to share with you all the lovely gifts I received for Mother's Day. My thoughtful husband presented me with this beautiful bouquet of flowers in the morning (lilies and snapdragons--snapdragons are one of my favorite flowers). After Mass, he also made me a delicious brunch which he'd planned, shopped for, and prepared himself. And best of all, afterwards, I got to go take a pleasant little nap while he watched Sophia and did all the dishes! It was bliss.
Along with the flowers, you will see some beautiful crystal cake plates, gifts from my own mother who, I must say, spoils me and mine to no end! It was a wonderful day, and I felt so honored to receive these precious gifts from my dear family. Of course, simply being mother to my darling girl and baby boy-on-the-way is gift enough. Then, to have a day to celebrate it and to be presented with such tokens of affection...well, I can hardly express my happiness! I am blessed beyond measure.
For those of you who are keeping track, we are now counting down to the due date in single digits! I can't wait to meet our son and to "introduce" him to you, my dear readers. Thank you so much for the kind words, thoughts, and prayers that I know many of you have spared on our behalf. Please know how much I treasure them and how grateful I am for them!
