Just thinking...


Here I am home at last, sitting at my computer getting caught up on blogs! I loved reading about everyone's fabulous week and how you all spent Mothers Day~ After checking email,the next thing I do is check in on my friends! I only have time for a quick post before the laundry beckons me and the suitcases need to be put away. But my heart is full of thoughts and thanks.So here's a few ....
I loved seeing Chloe! We ran to each other like a movie scene, eyes filled with tears and big hugs. A reminder of how blessed I am to have family that being away from is so darn awful!
Five days with my family and we NEVER tire of each other.

Arrived home to a precious "Mothers Day" card from Abby. Abby is the daughter of our friends Vicky and John. Somehow I got lucky to have Abby love me and think of me as one of her moms. I have done nothing to deserve this title or overflowing love from her.But I sure am thankful for it! I am greeted with hugs and love every time I see her. The thought of her taking the time to drop off a card just warmed my heart. Thank you sweet girl...

I loved being away but realized it isn't the same without seeing my own kids on Mothers Day! Last year when we "went away" we went to San Diego to spend the weekend with them. So this year without them felt kinda empty. I spoke to them all a few times that day,laughed and shared "mom memories" but I have decided I will spend the next 50 Mothers Day with my kids. I will always miss my own mom on that day but I know she would be happy for me to have the love and attention.

Steve took me to see "Phantom of the Opera" and it took my breath away. The theater, the costumes, the love story, but mostly the amazing live MUSIC. Spellbinding!

Came home to a huge pile of mail! For me that is always so fun!!!!

Well I am back to work at 5 am, the life of a princess sleeping in & being waited on has come to an end. But I still have my Prince,and a family that blesses and nourishes my heart.And this girl could not be any more thankful!

So where did you go??? I read backwards and still can't find out. I'm glad you had a Happy Mother's Day and a fun getaway. Looking forward to some pictures, hope you took your camera.
