We had a busy Mother's Day here. Mr. H was assigned to speak at church (the Mother's Day talk -- fraught with peril, that one!) and did a wonderful job. He was a little nervous about it that morning, but still managed to pull off a big surprise, thanks in part to a sweet mother-in-law's help ($). (Thank you!)
Mr. H got me a mixer. My reaction: Honey! ... What the heck? ... No! ... Well, okay.... [sheepish grin]... [big hugs]! (He told me it was the small one, and not too expensive...fine by me!)
After church, we all had my Mother's Day dinner ( Tacos and chocolate chip cookies -- I know. No steaks, no fancy-schmancy anything. I just wanted junk food for Mother's Day!) and mmmm ... it tasted so good! How fun to then use the mixer to make the cookies. They turned out way yummy.
I still think my Mother's Day surprise is little extravagant, especially considering our current "bend in the road", and I feel a little guilty, but I've decided to accept this joy in the journey and let my hubby bless me. He's wanted to get me one for a long time, and it made him so happy to do this. I'm happy too.
