Then Sat. I was able to go out (missing the bedtime routine) for the night and see “Moms Night Out” at the theater (I have not been to a theater in years since we took the kids to see Horton Hears a Who). I went with my wonderful friend M* from church and her sweet sister in-law A* and my dear special friend P* (who shared the love of Jesus with me and has eternally changed our family). We met up there with about 10 other women from a nearby church and after the show all went to R*by Tue*day together. It was such a funny movie yet very encouraging and I love the fact they mention Jesus in it.
When I got home I had a wonderful surprise waiting for me….Blessing #1 was home! I didn’t think he was coming home until Sunday or Monday for the summer. Then my wonderful big kids and hubby informed me that had done grocery shopping and had a picnic ready for Mothers Day – seeing we are still cocooning with our little one but they still wanted to do something special for me.
Sunday was such a beautiful day here and we really enjoyed the nice weather. Our picnic was so sweet and the kids enjoyed running around and playing in a willow tree. We walked around a cute little town and did some window shopping. What I loved the most about the day was that all my “babies” were home this year.
I thank you Jesus for your love for me and blessing me with my beautiful family that is an example of you - because they love and cherish me in spite of my many short comings.
