Mother's Day weekend...better late than never

Mother's Day weekend was be.aut.i.ful!!  We were able to spend lots of time outside--walking on the beach, working in the garden, planting up our pots and eating alfresco.  Nothing too hurried, just lots of down time to chillax.

The Noodle was "in the zone" when we went down to the Lake.  Complete with her binoculars and her palentologist bag.  She was intent to find fossils--Daddy tried to convince her that some cool looking shells were ancient bones from long ago dinos, but she didn't buy it.

Little Buddy was a willing participant along for the ride...no matter what the activity ;)

This year the Noodle was really into planning out Mother's Day .  She had it in her mind exactly what she wanted to do, so Saturday she and J were busy running errands here and there to get everything in place. So sweet.
Sunday morning she brought me breakfast in bed which was so thoughtful.  After church we ran to the garden store (or 3) before we met up with Lollie and Papa for brunch.  Boy how the tide can turn...prior to brunch, NO ONE wanted Mama...it was all about Daddy.  Ha!  Just keeping it real.  Once everyone had some food in their tummies things calmed down.
***Just as an aside, I know this hat makes me look like a complete tool, but since I'm edging ever so much closer to a milestone birthday, I've become much more aware of the sun and the damage that it is/has done to my skin.  Vanity be gone!!!!!

Mother's Day can be such a blessing, but I know that it can also be a very hard holiday (--see here ).  For too many years I just wanted to skip right over this particular Sunday.  A great prayer warrior, who has since gone on to be with the Lord, used to pray this scripture for me:  "He gives the barren woman a home, making her the joyous mother of children.  Praise the Lord!"--Psalm 113:9  Praise the Lord is right!!
