The Gold Star Hubby


*Big Sigh*

Okay, I’m going to admit that a very good mother’s day goes along way in restoring my notion of motherhood.

 If you haven’t noticed the last couple of weeks around here have been a bit dramatic. I have been feeling over worked, over whelmed and in need of something.

Lucky for me that something was an awesome Mother’s Day.

In general I am not a big fan of Mother’s Day. In the past Mother’s Day felt a little like a big stick hitting me on the head. Each thunk on the head felt like a reminder of  everything that I do wrong. Let’s face it mother’s are human so they make their fair share of mistakes.

Including, writing the wrong time for a soccer game down and showing up a quarter late. Who ME?

 Having a day to celebrate those mistakes seems a little...unnecessary.

Well this year the hubby and the kids pulled out the stops and I had a good day. Starting with a great Mother’s Day Program at Church and ending with my dear hubby taking very good care of me.

I have been doing quite a bit of thinking over the last few weeks, as my moods ran somewhere between a hungry dragon and the wicked witch of the west. I realize that all to often I let my life overwhelm me.
Being as I am me I have a few thoughts on that. 

However, kids need to get off to school and I need to get ready for work.  Funny how life never really slows down and lets you do what you want when you want.

I hope you all have a great Monday.

Hugs and Prayers

Congrats on your gift! I definitely don't know what has gotten into our hubbies, but whatever it is, I'm not complaining. Way to go Brent!!!
