Hello Friends and Happy Mother’s Day 2013!

Sending love to all the moms, mom-moms, nana’s, grandma’s, aunties, cousins, and friends on this beautiful Mother’s Day.  Mine was nice and it started with breakfast in bed, hubby made me chicken and waffles with coffee and fruit then we stayed in bed watching a Hazel marathon on Antenna TV.  This afternoon my sons took me to Ruby Tuesday for an early dinner, which is now our tradition because that is where they took me last year.

Mother’s Day will be bittersweet

  • today at 50, I’ve been a mother for almost 20 years
  • my grandmother was 50 when I was born, she took me & my sis under her wing at the age of 57 and lived to be 98
  • Mother’s Day will be bittersweet
  • the parent of a 3 month preemie weighed a mere 2.5 lbs, not sure if he would live or die
  • my God is Awesome
  • i look in the mirror and see my mother
  • bore but did not raise me
  • died before I really got to know her
  • feared I would have to care for her in her old age
  • grandmother said in order to live a long life you have to treat everybody right and pray
  • Mother’s Day will be bittersweet
  • not a friend but a fierce protector and provider
  • mother never saw her grandsons
  • a mother of 2…

Mother’s Day breakfast-in-bed (thanks hubby) and lunch at Ruby Tuesdays (thanks sons) really blew my diet so today it’s back to strict Nutrisystem!

Top w/ faux necklace – Walmart// Polka Dot Capris – Goodwill//  Madden Girl Pumps – Ross  // Bracelet – Sams Beauty.com// Ring and earrings – Payless

I hope and pray that all the Mothers had as nice of a day spent with their children as I did.  My Mother’s Day was the fulfillment of one of those “I can’t wait till they grow up and …. “

“I can’t wait till they grow up and talk…I can’t wait till they grow up and are potty trained..I can’t wait till they grow up and walk… I can’t wait till they grow up and go to school…get a job…move out…etc.  My “I can’t wait” was having them drive me to lunch and paying for it tip and all!

Although there are times that I long for my sons to be toddlers again, it’s a beautiful thing when they are old enough to appreciate  and show

how much they care without coaxing.  I was very surprised when hubby told me that the boys planned on taking me out for lunch and it was a beautiful day with just the two of them.  Afterwards we stopped at Lowes to get flowers and of course to Goodwill for the Mother’s Day $5 off $20 sale.

This pallet was $5.00, I guess @DollarTree has to change it’s slogan – “Dollar Tree Where Everything is $1.00”

All of these items are mine – yippee – Happy Mother’s Day to me!!!
