I was at home all day Sunday. No permission to leave the house at all. Jason did sneak me out to drive for about an hour. It was nice because I slept then. The kiddos left for Mass and I took a long hot shower. It was hard being left behind but I knew it was what had to be. The group got home with Bear walking to me with his hands cupped. Everyone stood around him. I had no idea what was going on, at first I thought he caught a bug. It was Bagel who giggled and then said, "No mom, he has Him, ya know God, He got you Communion." This is when the tears started to flow. The best gift ever given to me from Our Lord in the hands of my own children.
The kids got Olive Garden for me. They brought it home and we all had a great meal but missed Sugar and Goobers. We did Skype but it isn't the same. We also Skyped Dad's family.
At the end of the day I felt very lucky to have my children and to know that they all love me. I felt blessed to have two more little ones on the way. I can't wait to see them.
Happy Mother's Day to all those wonderful Mom's out there! You inspire me to be a better mom.
