A Perfect Mother's Day

I had a wonderful Mother's day. The weather wasn't quite as nice as I had hoped, but I did spend the entire day with my family. My kids set aside the entire day to spend with me.....that is big for them. No friends, no X-box, no computer......see what I mean. This was a real sacrifice for my boys, and it was the best gift. They also gave me 2 of the most perfect cards.

Amanda was up to something, and I knew she was making it. I wasn't allowed in her room all week (I was sort of scared to see what was happening in there, she is a bit of a mess-maker), but the wait was well worth it.

She made me an 'I love you' jar. It was filled with handmade cards that tell me all the reasons why she loves me. Each card was hand written, inked and marked with an 'XO', done in purple Stickles. I love it. It is so sweet.

I am very thankful for my 3 children. They may not tell me every day that they love me, but I know they do. This is the first Mother's day that they have done something on their own to show me how much.
