My day of ease and leisure.
Sunday, May 11, 2008

A friend of mine has a beautiful and original post up in honor of Mother's Day. Who knew my friends could be so poetic?

Mother's Day in Lubbock has been great. My incredible husband, who knows me so well, suspected that what I might like most on this Sunday honoring Mother's is to have a small break from mothering. That possibly seems ironic to some, celebrating Mother's Day by doing a little less mothering than usual, but some of you with small children possibly understand it completely.

Jonathan has be to be at church around 7:15 on Sunday mornings, the rest of us not until 9:45. So generally he's leaving the house as the rest of us are waking up. But not on this very special day my friends! On this very special day he woke up all three kids, got them dressed, and they all left the house together at 7:00am. He even managed to make a stop at Krispy Kreme on the way to church. What a man. This left me to lounge at home alone until the unheard of hour of 9:00am, when I finally started getting ready for my day with the luxury of only getting ONE person ready for church (just little ol' me!) instead of FOUR. Awesome.

My morning of leisure was followed by take-out Pei Wei for lunch after church. It was an all around great day.

Happy Mother's Day!

I too struggled with the idea of wanting only time to myself on the day when you're supposed to be celebrating motherhood. But I quickly got over it!! It was NICE. So glad you had a nice morning to yourself. We all need it every once in a while. And thanks for the compliments on being poetic--no one has ever said that about me before! :-)

Guess what! Me too!! My unspoken mother's day gift was that Keith took care of Benny during worship yesterday at church, so I could sing my heart out to Jesus with no interruptions!

Of course I remember who you are from High School. You two made a cute couple then and I am glad to hear how well things are going for the two of you now. Your children are adorable and I have enjoyed catching up on your family!

Jonathan was a very thoughtful husband on Mother's Day!
