Mother's Day

This year my Mother's Day started a little early.  I was pampered by the Noodle Friday morning at 'Spa-la-la', located in her Kindergarten classroom.  No expense was spared and I got pampered with only the best in service and attention!!

A mani/pedi, massage, hair style, make-up application, some tasty refreshements and of course, good conversation!
We were told to come with a clean face and remove all our nail polish.  Thankfully, a little bird had told me to perhaps bring more, ahem, neutral, light colors for polish and make-up.  Good thing.  Ha!

When she handed me her little gift, which was a plant with a poem, I got all choked up and started crying.  You just never know when emotion is going to well up!
Yesterday, after a coooold soccer game, we went out for brunch.  Chocolate chip french toast with whipped cream?  Um, yes please!  It was exactly what I needed to warm up.

This morning, before we left for church, I found the Noodle sitting in her toy box very intent. She was busy making boxes and writing all sorts of things down.  Interview questions for me, I found out.

Then it was time for church.  The Noodle sang in the choir--such a sweet song about a mother's love.  The rest of the day is going to be pretty low-key-- just snuggling on the couch, reading books, playing matchbox cars and figuring out how to make a bow and arrow (thank you Merida). 
For so many years, this had been such a hard day. Tears were all too common. Now, the tears of saddness are replaced with tears of joy and thankfulness. How blessed I am.
