I was surprised yesterday by my Son Kyle with this clever handmade card for Mother's Day (MoTHRS Day, rather.) LOL ~ but his words are so wonderful, witty and TRUE. My favorite part "So Dad can't be a jerk" - So my husband says "Why am I always the jerk?" We said "Because you ARE!" LOL!
I was woken up briefly and swiftly by my oldest Son Jacob, who squeezed me tight and said "Happy Mother's Day Mama! I love you!" as he was leaving for work around 11ish. I fell back asleep and woke up at 1:00 pm! When I woke back up, it was to the smell of roasted jalapenos, onions, tomatoes and garlic. My husband was making his roasted homemade salsa. When I came downstairs there was a Happy Mother's Day balloon, a Pandora gift bag and my beautiful card. Inside the gift bag was this elegant "limited edition" Pandora charm in a gorgeous ceramic holder. My gift from my boys. My Pandora charm bracelet is so full now - I can barely put it on. But I love what each charm represents and who they are from.
My day was relaxing, calm, quiet. The Chardonnay was flowing, the wind was blowing and it was a perfect Mother's Day.
