getaway day 2010

the best.

seriously.

Could not have dreamed of a better day.

I am a "Mom".   

I am blessed.

My gift from the Pita was a night at a local resort.  So thoughtful.  Exactly what I needed this weekend.

My gift from Peanut:

My sweet new bracelet [that is NOT removable].
Poem: 
Mom, I love you the bluest
Like the color of the forever sky,
like a bluebird flying,
like the edge of a flame,
your favorite color,
like the eyes of Chuy,
my favorite color,
So......... Happy Mother's Day!
All my "blue" items.  So what that I only got the blue skittles because she hates the blue ones.  Love that kid.
The Pita - AKA - the best launching pad --- EVER!
 I love the note she wrote about me:

          The important thing about MY Mom is that she helps others.
She is very fashionable and helps me cook.  She cheers people up when they are sad or lonely.  She has a lot of friends, and helps me with my homework.  But the important thing about my mom is that she helps others.

I adore being a Mom.  I'm grateful to BE a Mom.  I am blessed to be Peanut's "Mom".

Hi from Orlando!

Just saw a comment you left on Meg Runs and jumped over for a minute. Read your Mother's Day post... beautiful. Happy Mother's Day! It's clear that's a very important part of your life... as is your family (I read on!).

Here's to being fashionable, Hot Mama! That just cracked me up! I loved the little 'gift themes' going on with your presents, no wonder you felt so blessed!

Love that girl, and can she nail it on the head about you! Reading her note, I imagine you singing "When We're Helping We're Happy." Like I said before, the evidence of what a fabulous mom you are is the evidence of "Peanut". She's a lucky girlie!
