|We had no idea Blondie was coming home from college but we managed to coordinate our outfits perfectly! How in the world?!|
I had the BEST Mother's Day! My sweet College Girl surprised me - I had no idea she was coming home (she told me she had too much homework, etc.). But she popped her gorgeous self into my room at 8:30 a.m. Sunday morning, brought me a bouquet of white roses and went to church with us!

The night before my sweet "Jelly-in-the-Middle" stayed up past midnight helping her daddy plant flowers all over our front and back yard for "me" and she also baked me a delicous Kahlua chocolate chip bundt cake!
Sweet "Sugar" lived up to her name by writing me the sweetest card - "the best thing about having you as my mom is having you as my children's grandma." (She doesn't have kids yet but she's thinking ahead!)
The Prince has learned to how to mow the lawn and he also made me a bouquet of paper flower coupons that I adore. His sweet smile lights up a room!
Why was this the best Mother's Day? Because my kids "showed up." Plain and simple. They each gave of themselves in a special, unique way. Due to a "series of unfortunate events" this has been one of the toughest years of my parenting journey by far....but God is faithful and on Mother's Day he gave me the encouragement I needed to keep on keeping on.
I am grateful for life! For these 4 smiles and these 4 hugs from these 4 amazing kids who call me Momma!
