Thank you, God, for mothers! I have been truly blest to have the mommy I do and I am hoping I showed her just how grateful I am today that she is my mommy. 🙂 Steven and I decided to take her to a botanical garden and arboretum that is near (okay like about 10 to 15 minutes from) our house. We spent most of the day there. We arrived sometime after 10:00 am and left some time around 1:00 pm. Then we stopped by home to freshen up a bit before I took her to dinner (we went to an all you can eat buffet). I really wanted some steak, but they were out when I got to the window, so I decided to have ribs, ham, and fish. I also made myself a small taco salad (I probably should have made it larger and just had that for dinner instead). After dinner, I went with Mom to a secondhand store. I actually like buying things from secondhand stores; they’re like going on a treasure hunt — you never know what you’ll find! After that we came home and I gave Mom her present (a Winnie the Pooh t-shirt) and a card. I also ended up still eating a snack even though I shouldn’t have (I’m sure I just gained another pound or two).
Anyway, all I can say is that at least today was a day well-spent and doing things that Mom (or so she says) enjoyed. Isn’t that what it means to really be family (especially when celebrating moms)?
On a side note, I realize I haven’t posted much here lately. I apologize, but things have gotten a bit crazy and I’ll have to return to this blog as well as cleaning my bedroom. There are now more things on my bed (mostly due to almost having a drawer nearly fall on my foot a couple of weeks back now). I sincerely do want to clean this room; it just seems things keep piling up on me.
So anyway, thank you, God, for my mommy and for mommies everywhere. 😀
Alleluia! Jesus is risen! Alleluia! He is risen indeed!
