It’s a special day! Today is the first mothers day that I can celebrate as a mom. Because its a Sunday we can’t do a whole lot today, but we have had a great weekend. We had family fun Friday which is now our favorite tradition, starting with going out to breakfast at Stacks, one of the best pancake restaurants around. In case you didn’t know I LOVE pancakes. Then we spent the day at Ikea trying to find some reasonable space solutions for the duplex we are moving into in 3 weeks!
Then yesterday we had a picnic at Vasona County Park in Los Gatos. It was a really great afternoon, David (and Ella) planned for all the food and everything. He even planned some reading time for me which I was so excited about…and then I left my book at home! Grrr! But it turned out fun anyways because we talked about lots of things including parenthood and memories of elementary and middle school.
Mothers day is so special. I have 4 friends who have lost their moms in the last year and it makes me so thankful for every day I can pick up the phone and talk to my mom. I don’t want to take it for granted ever! There’s no one quite like your mom. It’s a one of a kind relationship. Thank you mommy for your love and all you have sacrificed for me over the years. There is a place in my heart that will always be only yours!
Today we will stand before God and our church to dedicate Ella back to Him, just like you and daddy did with me and Boot. It’s a special day!
