Yesterday was perfect.
Just exactly how I would have written a chapter entitled "The Perfect Mother's Day."
Chocolate-covered strawberries and coffee served up by three eager kids with behead.
Handmade cards and adorably misspelled love declarations, along with presents of candles and chocolate.
So many kisses and hugs and "Happy Mother's Day" wishes, all before I had even brushed my teeth. And they were so happy that it was FINALLY MOTHER'S DAY! One child even said, "Mama, I love you and you're the best mom ever, so I'm going to be your shadow for the whole day and stay right by you!
After church, it was out to lunch at a fantastic Mexican place, where the chips were fresh and the salsa flowed freely. We splurged on an appetizer and the kids even got to have frozen slushy drinks in fancy glasses with umbrellas in them. La Senortia, your chili relleno just may have been the best I've had, and that, my friends, is sayin' somethin'. They've certainly made their way into my heart and also the Preferred Restaurant List.
We exited La Senorita into the glorious sunshine and Nate snapped a photo of the girls and me. And some kind woman offered to take one of all 5 of us. I love it.
