The Royal Tea Party

Scripture of the day: "Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." -John 3:3b, KJV

Happy day after Mother's Day! I hope you had a wonderful day filled with love, laughter, blessings, and memories. My weekend was filled with wonderful people, conversation, and food. I celebrates with my mom last Wednesday. I took her out to lunch at Olive Garden. It was so nice to just sit and enjoy each other's company. We used to do stuff like that all the time. I had a great time and I know she did too. It's nice to get out once in a while with your mama.

Saturday, my SIL, MIL, and two of my nieces went to a "Royal Mother's Day Tea Party" at my SIL's church. It was such a nice time. The guest speaker was exactly what I needed. God knew I needed to hear her words about being a Godly wife, mother, and woman. What a blessing she was. All of us girls had a lovely time. We sipped all sorts of wonderful teas, ate great food, had a wonderful conversations, and met some new friends. I really enjoyed myself.

Sunday my boys and Hubby gave me flowers, cards, candy, a candle (in lavender, my favorite), and a Casting Crowns Cd. I have never felt so loved! Then Hubby made breakfast, lunch, and dinner for me. The dinner was the best: grilled steak, potatoes and onions, and mac and cheese. Yummy! My Mother's Day was absolutely wonderful.

Thank you Hubby for making it so special!
