have a wonderful Mother's Day that is both relaxing and enjoyable yet also gives you the opportunity to be thankful for being given one of life's greatest gifts.
I am planning on spending the morning enjoying a Mother's Day brunch and then relaxing for the remainder of the day and spending some quality time with the fam. My brother is coming home from college today and I'm really looking forward to seeing him!!!
And in honor of Mother's Day, I thought I would dedicate this post to telling everyone a little bit about my mother, whose also my best friend and biggest supporter. Its so true that without her direction and guidance in life I would not be where I am. She's an amazing woman with a huge heart and a great sense of humor. She taught school for 30 years before retiring but still does some substituting and when she's not doing that she's relieving my dad from his Addie day care job (yes, my parents watch Addie while the hubs and I are at work - we are SO lucky!!!). Growing up, she ran the household like her school classroom - everything had its place and expectations were clear. My brother and I always knew what to expect and my mom NEVER let us down.
