Happy Mother's Day! This morning Coby and the boys surprised me with Breakfast in bed. Corb was so sweet. He made me a mother's day flower in a pot that he hand painted and got me a silver necklace that says "Mom" and little heart earrings.
He's been sooo sweet today. He came in and woke me up telling me he made homemade pancakes with sausage and fresh orange juice. I love my flowers too.
Corb: "Happy Mother's Day....DON'T COME DOWN STAIRS OKAY......We're doing a surprise for you....and you can't peek."
Me: Yummy....It smells great...
Corb: Ya, and we even have a present for you too.
Me: (eyes wide) what is it??!!
Corb:..."Oh no you don't...Dad said not to tell you no matter what!"
Me: Just one little hint...please....?!
Corb: Well, okay...WAIT...I CAN'T....Wait...let me ask dad first okay?"
He comes back a few minutes later and says,
Corb: "I just can't tell you mom..."
Then he leaves and as he's leaving I ask him to close the door. He turns around and cutely says with a sweet smile on his face..."Oh, sure mom...you can have whatever you want today...It's mother's Day...didn't you know?!"
A little bit later, all three of my boys (maybe even one more that I couldn't see) came upstairs to summon me to breakfast. It was perfect. Corb colored a picture for me that says he LIKES me...hmmm....and Coby told me that he was taking me to see Les Miserables in NYC in October. I can't wait!!! Coby is by far the GREATEST husband EVER!!!!!! Love you baby!
Yesterday my cute friend stopped by and dropped off a little something from "Jack". She really is one of the most thoughtful people I have ever met. I'd love to give her a shout out, but she's also one of the more humble people I know and I don't want to make her feel anything but the gratitude I feel for her. I just love this girl.
I love the little boy praying. I do think it looks like Jackie. The name of the figurine is called "Peeking". If you look closely, you can see that the little boy praying is actually trying to Peek during the prayer. I KNOW that that's EXACTLY what my sweet little Jackie might be doing right now if he were here. So, this figurine makes me smile because I can actually picture him Peeking at us! I like to think that he Peeks at us all the time and when we start to notice that something is off...he's closes his eyes and is gone again. I miss him. I wish he were here...OH how I wish he were here. Someday...right Britt!!
This has really been a GREAT Mother's Day. I certainly miss my sweet little Jack right now. I wonder what he would have been doing to aid in the 'festivities' this morning. I would really give anything to see that smile and not on film....But I am grateful for the other little smiles I am so blessed to see each day. I love these little boys more than anything in this whole world. They teach me so much each day and make me want to be the person I need to be so that we will indeed be that tightly woven eternal family someday. My heart is full of happiness, tears of joy and sorrow and gratitude to my Heavenly Father for blessing me so abundantly.
This post is dedicated to all mothers out there. Especially my mom, Joanne and Grandmother. I miss my Grandma Burton more than I could ever say. She along with my mom and Joanne are the very image of what all moms should be. I have been very blessed to have the privilege of calling them mother in some form.
This post is also dedicated to all my mommy friends and angel mom friends. May you have your day filled with love and happiness and may ALL your children be close...even if you can't see them. Love to all you!
