How was your Mother’s Day? Our morning started with Sunshine making coffee for me and then all of us rushing out the door to the 8:30 service at church. We were late, which was disappointing because I love being in time for all of worship. Despite that, we got seats near the front, which helps the kids stay more focused.
After worship a video about motherhood was shown. I started to watch it and then realized that I just wasn’t up for an encouraging “motherhood is wonderful and hard, and you are amazing” message, so I read through the sermon notes instead. The sermon spoke to me on so many levels. I thought continually of Bee and Dimples, and how important it is to rejoice over the good that God is doing in their lives, and remember how precious they are to Him.
At home, the kids prepared a wonderful dinner, with the boys and Sunshine doing the cooking. We topped it off with iced coffee made by Noah, and strawberry shortcake made by Ladybug. Mimi spent an hour going through my clothes and helping me purge my closet – it was a fantastic gift. My love language is definitely “acts of service”; I loved getting that project done with her help.
Dimples called in the afternoon to wish me a happy Mother’s Day and we talked for a few minutes. Hannah called later in the day after she finished working on a presentation she is giving this week – something about sinusitis in the ICU – but don’t quote me on that. I called my Mom and had a nice chat with both of my parents.
We’re dealing with lots of appointments and complex schedules for Bee and some of our other children right now. The numerous phone calls and scheduling challenges are consuming much of my time and seemingly all of my mental space; it’s taking a toll on me.
If you think of us, please pray for strength, wisdom, and peace this week. Thank you, friends.
Tell me about your Mother’s Day – I want to hear from you – even if it was a hard one.
