44 Years

Isabelle and I just got back from my parents' house where we'd gone to wish them both a Happy Anniversary  -- 44 YEARS! 

That's a tremendous accomplishment and I'm so thankful for my Mom and Dad!

Little Miss and I traipsed through aisle after aisle of darling plants and flowers in search of just the right one for Mimi. Oh wait, that is how I had pictured it in my mind. The cold hard reality may have resembled something a little different, something shall we say, like a drooling, whining, Nervous Nellie of a dog yanking his poor people along like helpless rag dolls through the outdoor displays. Silly dog.

We settled on purple petunias and a hot pink geranium, two of my mother's favorite colors.

I'm sure she would have loved them had she actually been at home when we showed up, ha ha! My Dad said she was out visiting friends (love that!) so we hung out with Grampy, who had been hard at work all morning repainting all the ceilings. He said he'd better clean himself up so she'd go out to dinner with him tonight. HaHaHa

So here we are back at home, Ryder is sprawled out by my feet as I type, Caleb is gearing up for his game tonight, Ethan will have a sleepover with Bill's parents, I'm thinking up something little but special for Jonah and me if I put Isabelle to bed early, I'm trying to finish up some sewing orders, finish the laundry, get snacks made, and saving the best for last...deciding which sides to order from our favorite Chinese food joint for Date Night In with my man. I just happened to pick up Friday Night Lights, Season One last week...  ;o)

Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Mother's Day!
I hope this {see below} is part of my weekend plans...

And for those of you who ache to be mothers, I'm praying for you- God has wonderful things in store for you, but waiting can be so hard! Don't give up hope!

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee; because he trusteth in thee.
Isaiah 26:3

Have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend. I am sure you will be treated like the queen of the house. Thank you for those final words of encouragement. I love being an aunt, but they are still not my own. So far they haven't come up with a holiday for Aunts!
