But memories of Mom are not all sad. I also think about the happy times with her. Going through a bunch of old pictures recently has increased all of this, too. I hope that I am building happy memories for my children. I know that they are building happy memories for me. They have had me laughing a lot lately. And they filled my heart with happiness this weekend as we celebrated Mother's Day.
These are not from Mother's Day, but are pictures of me and Mom together.
Steve helped me have a great weekend, too. For starters, we had planned to work on the new fence this weekend, but Steve got all of this weekend's work done without me! I had joked with him that he could do that, and he tried hard to get it done. While he was working on the fence, I was helping at a baby shower for a new mom-to-be in our church. What a great start to Mother's Day weekend! On Sunday, Steve was working the lights at all 3 services at church. The boys got up in time to go with him early in the morning, so I got to sleep in and just get myself to church. I didn't get my usual breakfast in bed, but I think it was a great trade! What a great husband I have!!!
