Firstly, thank you to Kim Selby for taking this gorgeous photo.¬†
Secondly, HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to all you lovely mothers out there.¬† You’re job is very special.¬† Be encouraged in your day-to-day tasks and remember that your job is imperative in assisting your children from the transition from childhood to adulthood.
Thirdly, can I just say that “I love my family”.¬† Thank you for looking after me.¬† Today I was awoken with this message.
and a delicious breakfast………… one egg ’sunny side up’ and one egg ‘flipped’…….. I even got a serviette…….
BUT before I could ‘dig in’ to my brekky I had a myriad of gifts & cards to open.¬†¬†Between 6 children & a hubby I think I received more than 10 cards!!¬†¬† The kids creative juices were flowing with many words of love and kisses and cuddles and pictures - pictures that moved, pictures that were hidden behind flaps, words that were cut out of paper AND the gifts were very special.¬† Lavendar smelly stuff, family organizer magnetic calendar, star soaps, home made mug, fruit and nut chocolate (kids were quick to let me know that they are NOT allergic to nuts) and some jewellery - yes, I’m one of the spoilt mother’s whose husband also buys me a gift even though I am not his mother!¬† What more could a mother ask for?
First prize for the day has to be the poem written for me by the family……….. a group effort.
Faster than a speeding bullet
Stronger than Captain Underpants
More beautiful than a fairy
Smarter than¬†a 5th Grader
If I’m stronger than Captain Underpants and smarter than a 5th Grader, what more could they want out of a mother?
I would love to hear about your Mothers Day experiences!¬† Both good and bad.¬† Bet no-one else got a poem as good as mine!¬† [LOL]
