(my)Mother's Day



My first Mother's Day as a mom was wonderful. Andrew made a big deal about needing to stay home from church to study for midterms and instead made me the cake pictured above and surprised me with it when I got home. My mom was here, and along with my brother and sis-in-law and their kids Sweetie and Cub we took a picnic lunch to Lake Washington and ate it in the sunshine watching mountains and water and blue sky and enjoying each other. At church I was showered with love in the form of salted caramels, hugs and well wishes, and a gorgeous ceramic bowl inscribed with a blessing that brought tears to my eyes. Last night after our weekly building bbq I stayed up late and watched Betty White's SNL on hulu and during her monologue at the part where she said "I feel so loved!" I felt a funny lump in my throat because I know exactly what that is like. ♥
