The Best Mother’s Day Gift

The Best Mother’s Day Gift

 

Sometimes the BEST gifts are wrapped in laughter and silliness…it’s only when these moments have passed that we recognize them as wonderfully fabulous!

This past weekend we celebrated Mother’s Day. I had a wonderful weekend full of love, laughter and family! My weekend started with an evening jog, family pizza making and a movie. Saturday we had a family picnic at the lake followed by a  4 mile bike ride (for the kids and the hubby, I ran) after which I dropped everyone off at home and finished my long run, 10 miles!

Sunday started with church and a relaxing afternoon and ended with us on our front porch watching the storm…the kiddos even ran down and played in the rain for a few minutes.

While none of these activities are particularly exciting (to anyone but probably my family) to have them all in ONE weekend…for my family was WONDERFULLY FABULOUS! We are so busy and life happens…so this past weekend was the BEST Mother’s Day gift.  

 

While material gifts are nice, I am typically one that prefers the gift of time and thoughtfulness. If you were spoiled with gifts this Mother’s Day and loved it, that’s GREAT! There is absolutely nothing wrong with that at all. 🙂 In past years I have asked for things too…last year I asked for and received my Garmin Watch, which I LOVE! But this year this mama needed a long weekend full of family, relaxation, laughter and memories and that’s exactly what I got!

 

Life goes by to fast and as I watch my little ones grow at the speed of light I know looking back I will remember this year, watching my kiddos playing in the rain, laughing and having a great time!
I hope you all received your BEST Mother’s Day Gift!

 

Happy Mother’s Day!!!
