Quick post on Mothers Day

Hello all,
Happy late Mother's Day to all you moms, sisters, crazy aunties, etc. wherever you may be! Last week I was so busy here at work I didn't get a chance to post about Mothers Day, and I had actually written a post about the seasons of motherhood, how wonderful the women all around us are and all sorts of other stuff. However, this is what I wanted to say...

The best Mother's Day gift wasn't actually on Mother's Day, although I did get hugs and kisses and love galore. Last night, Jared had taken his shower and was running around our house like a wild child while I was reading and Kiersten was in her room writing, Mike was out in the garden and all was right in our little corner of the world. Jared comes to me, holds my face in his hands and says, "mommy, do you know how much I love you?" I answered that I didn't. He says, "there are no words to tell you how much I love you, I can't tell you because I don't know the words." I told him, "son, I know exactly how you feel because as much as you love me, I love you even more and I don't have the words either." That was the best gift I could get.

Peace and love y'all!

Ah, so sweet! I was telling my son a couple of weeks ago that mothers don't really want expensive perfume or another piece of jewelry; most of them just want to feel appreciated and loved.
