I had a lovely Mother’s Day! Jason took over the boys, so I was able to sleep in past 5AM!
The big girls made me a wonderful breakfast. They also bought me some wonderful flowers and a balloon – so sweet!
At church, Lizzy spoke in Sacrament meeting. She was assigned to speak on a Christ like attribute she learned from her mother. (No pressure – hope I taught her something! ) She talked about patience. It was a really nice talk. She is kind. The primary sang – Joy and Bella were adorable! Joy was very animated and I kept hearing “Mom” coming from Bell. One sweet Mama came up to me afterwards and shared the sweetest message. Her baby, also named Joy and also with Down syndrome, passed away when she was a baby. She told me she felt her baby girl was singing to her through Joy. We embraced. Mother’s Day is such an interesting day – so difficult for so many. I hope I am always cognisent of others.
Primary gave me some flowers, and I was the spotlight of the day – so cute, watching the kids try to figure out who had red hair, green eyes, 2 brothers and 6 sisters, favorite temple is the SLC temple, and favorite food – chocolate!
For the third hour at church, all of the women meet together. There was a buffet and several sweet speakers.
For dinner, Sandi and Gary brought over everything – roast, potatoes, carrots, salad, and dessert. Jason, Gary, and Lizzy cleaned up the kitchen.
Becca brought over a cute Grammie necklace and shirt.
I got to talk with my Mama for 37 minutes.
I really don’t think the day could have been better! I felt loved and appreciated!
