I had a fantastic Mother's Day! All three of my guys really made me feel special and appreciated. One of the most special parts of my day was the card that they got for me.
Shad and B picked out the perfect card for me. My "word of the year" for my 29th year was "shine," and they found a card that talked about my love shining through.
If it couldn't get better, the card played "You are the Sunshine of my Life" by Stevie Wonder. I am a HUGE Stevie Wonder fan. As soon as B heard the song on the card, he insisted that they get that card. I'm sure he recognized it from me playing it all the time.
I loved the card, and when I opened it up, I realized that Shad had asked B a bunch of questions about me. Here are a few of them...
Who is Mommy's favorite person? Me...(long pause)...and Collin
What is Mommy's favorite t.v. show? The Duggars
What is Mommy's favorite book? the Bible
What is Mommy's favorite hobby? wrestling with me and Collin
What is Mommy's favorite quote? I love you
What are Mommy's rule? No hit, no spit, no brake, wrestle softly
What is Mommy's favorite time of day? the morning with her boys
What do you think of when you hear the word Mommy? It really makes me happy
What do you miss when Mommy has to be somewhere else? hugs and kisses
What do you want to tell Mommy? That I love her and I want to tell her that I want to get her a new phone with Angry Birds. You make me feel good and I love your cheese biscuits.
I cried when I read this card. So often as a mom, I feel like a failure. I guess it comes with the territory, but Shad and B showed me that B is really getting the important thing, that I love him.
