Happy Mother's Day to everyone! We had a good day. Daniel bought us mothers flowers and a chocolate bar! At church the Mother's were given the book "Created to be his Helpmeet" by Debi Pearl. I have been wanting to read the book since I first heard about it on the MOMYS Digest years ago. They gave another gift to the oldest Mother and the Mother with the most children. Well since I am expecting our fifth the prize was given to me! [Note: we go to a very small church! Maybe 12 families so winning is not a hard thing to do!] Still I never win prizes.
As for my surprise from the kids.... well they made me a coconut cake all by themselves. Grandma only put the pans in and took them out of the oven. The kids added all the ingredients, mixed, poured, icing and decorated a two layer cake by themselves! They did a great job! I was impressed. Then my Mother came over after church with lunch... turkey, dressing, stuffing, sweet potato casserole, corn, and rolls. It was really good. Thankfully she did not take offense when I ran to the bathroom after eating my plate full! That happens in my first trimester... everyone is used to it!
I want to thank both of our Mothers for their love, strength, example, and all that they are. They allowed God to make them who they are. We love you both and praise God for you!
