Today was a day that has been filled with surprises. Part of those surprises has been a puking 22 month old that started this morning. The greater of the surprises were my sweet gifts from my cute kids and husband: a homemade card from Reagan, a handprint school project from Rees, and a similar school project from Jackson plus some cute bows he made me at scouts. How I treasure these! But if I can say the greatest surprise was from my husband who gave me an airplane ticket to UTAH so I can be there for my sisters endowment session! Rarely do I cry over a gift, but this opened the flood gates! With my fathers declining health it means that much more. How grateful I am for a loving and considerate husband who buys me things I would never buy for myself. So Mason and I are homeward bound for a few days in June and I don't think even puke can make me not love this day. How grateful I am to be a mom. It is the reason we are here and I count my blessings daily that I'm living my own happily ever after, puke and all!
