Mothers Day Weekend...Exactly What We Needed!

God does a wonderful job of giving us everything we need right when we need it. He promises us that he will provide and I am always so amazed how he works things out in a way that I am completely unable to predict or plan myself. After an extremely rough week I headed into the weekend wondering simply where do we go from here. Here was exactly where we needed to be and here is right where we stayed! Together with Gram Pam (Brant's mom) and my sister's family, we spent the weekend in the back yard under the warm sun enjoying each others company, planting wonderful things like strawberries and annuals, and eating all things summer! I made a barbecued Thai dinner on Sat and on Mother's Day we had a lovely breakfast on the deck followed by an all American summer style barbecue for dinner, complete with hamburgers, hot dogs and watermelon! Mid-way through the day Brant excused me and my sister and let us get away on a much needed coffee date. He held down the fort with seven kids and was more than cheerful when we returned! HAVE I MENTIONED HOW MUCH I LOVE HIM! He is truly an amazing man! On top of it all I was showered with cards and artwork made by my sweet children, two new chairs for my yard and a simply gorgeous hanging flower basket for my deck. I am filled to the brim with love and it all came right when I needed it!
