I am so blessed

Dear Lord, it's such a hectic day
With little time to stop and pray
For life's been anything but calm
Since You called on me to be a mom
Running errands, matching socks
Building dreams with building blocks
Cooking, cleaning, and finding shoes
And other stuff that children lose
Fitting lids on bottled bugs
Wiping tears and giving hugs
A stack of last weeks mail to read
So where's the quiet time I need?
Yet when I steal a minute, Lord
Just at the sink or ironing board
To ask the blessings of Your grace
I see then, in my small one's face
That you have blessed me
All the while
And I stop to kiss
That precious smile

I'm not sure who wrote that poem but I absolutely love it...Today has been a magnificent day. A lot of people do not like holidays such as this but I really enjoy it. I believe like any other holiday it can bring families together.

We spent the whole day running around. We woke up this morning and went to my Mothers house we were unsure if we were going to do anything that evening...Shortly after that we went to Lowe's and J got the rest of my Mothers Day present! Alexander and J picked out a bird bath for me. Some say it is unusual or ugly but I really love it BECAUSE it's so unusual and I love bright colors.

We went to my Mother in Laws house for most of the day. My husband did a bunch of yard work for his Mother and I helped out a little. Alexander really got into it and decided that he wanted to do yard work all of the time...Haha, I hope that it stays like that before I know he will become of great use to us when he gets older /Wink

Then, we spent the remainder of the evening with my side of the family. I made some dinner and it was pretty peaceful. I am so sun burnt from being outside all day...In really odd places so I think I need to get more sun to even it out, haha :) Today was just a perfect day for me and I am so blessed to be a Mother/Step Mother.
