Happy Mother's Day!

This Mother's Day was very special. I was asked by our pastor at church to speak about my mom in the service. The theme of his sermon was planting seeds of hope into the lives of our children. So, in sticking to the theme, I spoke about 3 specific seeds my mom planted in my life. I didn't tell her I was speaking so I am certain she was surprised when my name was called and I sauntered to the podium. It was such a privilege to shower praises upon my mom and to honor her in such a special way on a very meaningful day. We both shed tears and I feel this experience has strengthened our relationship. It was extremely cool and I am so proud I was able to do this for her.

After church, we celebrated by heading to a beautiful park to enjoy a lovely picnic Cam had prepared earlier. We laid out a blanket, spread out our delicious feast and soaked up the sun. I cherish the time I get to spend with my husband and our girls and this was no exception. We enjoyed the gorgeous weather, one another and our delectable lunch! Cam also spoiled me with new lulu lemon shorts! Woot! And of course, the beautiful framed photo of Annie and me hanging in our bedroom was the cherry on top of a perfect day with my absolute 3 favorite people on planet earth. I am blessed.
