I'm not gonna lie, I had a very lovely Mother's Day. Stella woke me up with a card and a balloon. (She had also made me a card at school that I got on Thursday. She was very sweet as she told me she tried to make her flowers on the card look like tulips, because she knows they are my favorite.) After getting out of church 20 minutes late I was able to take my Mother's Day nap and wake up to homemade snickerdoodles (a Brent and Stella specialty). Then we went to the Sallay's for dinner. It was such a pretty evening as we sat out in the back yard. I had my eye on some lilac bushes and decided that the bushes could spare some flowers. I made a lovely little arrangement that left my kitchen smelling awesome and me wanting to say out loud: Tulips my favorite? No, it is lilacs I love!
Of course I love my Stella more than any flower. When she sang in the primary program and said the words "I love you, I love you" and pointed to me I couldn't help but shed a tear or two of happiness that the sweet little girl in the front row is all mine.
