This Mother’s Day

Standard

The day started with my godson receiving his First Holy Communion.  I had the perfect view of him receiving from the chalice, but I stopped short of photographing the moment.  It was just too special.

My family went all out this year for Mother’s Day.  My mom stayed for a few days and gave me the gift of a day to do errands sans kiddos and a night out with N.

Then while I was out yesterday the kids washed and vacummed my van!!  This Mother’s Day clean-out has become a tradition in our family, hallelujah.

M. picked out the sweetest card for me and gave me a ring she found at the park last week.  It was too big for her, she said.

I am so grateful to have found her heart too. 🙂

I found myself thinking this morning, I cannot raise my voice on Mother’s Day.  Hmmm…need to stay in that train of thought this week!
