Best Mother's Day Ever!

My Mother's Day training is finally paying off! This morning I received breakfast in bed, complete with chocolate chip pancakes served on the "God Made Me Special" plate, a card, dozen roses and the new Narnia movie I wanted. They gave me more flowers at church and are taking me out to dinner tonight because I already warned them at the beginning of the weekend that I wasn't cooking at all on Mother's Day. 
The movie was even wrapped in princess paper. We had just enough time to watch it before church started. Love the spiritual truths in "Voyage of the Dawn Treader".My two precious blessings. I'm so grateful to be their mom. I thank God for entrusting me with their lives. While it seems an enormous, impossible responsibility at times, I'm so happy that I don't have to raise these kids by myself. God has provided me with a wonderful husband and father to these kids. God also gives me the strength and direction I need every time I ask for it, as issues too big for me to handle crop up. I can't image doing this incredibly important job on my own. My own mothers have helped shaped me into the mother I've become and I pray God will use me to do the same for my children. 

To all you mothers out there - never underestimate the importance of your God-given job. Happy Mother's Day!

God Bless,
Jackie

LOL, Rachel! I had actually gotten out of bed and taken a shower and the kids made me get back in bed and read until breakfast was ready. I don't have any make up on in the pictures, but at least my hair wasn't crazy, LOL!

Glad you had a wonderful Mothers Day, Jackie! The movie 'Voyage of the Dawn Treader' is really great, we bought it recently and we loved it too!

You have a beautiful family.

I think movies were a theme. I got two women in the west type movies plus chocolate and flowers.

Have a wonderful day.
