My Mother's Day Diary

Such a different Mother's Day, it was.
I fought off the urge to just stay in bed and cry.
I guess I was missing my mom and our daughters.

But that would have gotten me nowhere...
I would have just felt worse, instead of better.
And, thanks to technology,
(texts, skype, facetime, snapchats, and phone calls)
 I was able to visit with each daughter...Twice!

While so much was different,
much was the same.
We have always had our Mother's Day Celebration
with my hubby's sister. She is a wonderful hostess and makes a delicious dinner.
She has two delightful cats...this is Ella.

Plus, there was weekend mail!

The tissue and ribbons were so pretty that the packaging alone made me happy!

Such a pretty card...
along with special gifts.
Thank you, Emily.

I have a perfect place for this, right here.

And you know how much I love to wear bracelets...

I have a perfect place for this,
right here!

My forever thoughtful hubby
found this gem of a card...

With four more cards inside!

There's an inside story to his gift...
but this is already too long, so I'll save it for another day.

Thank you Amy and Emily for your texts, calls, facetimes and skypes.
Thank you to my hubby, his mom, and sister for spending family time together.
And thank you to some special friends that sent facebook messages and shapchats to make my day brighter.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
Take care,
~Natalie

How wonderful that a day that could have been so sad for you turned out so wonderfully! Happy (belated) Mother's Day Natalie and looking forward to hearing the story behind your hubbies gift!

I'm glad it turned into a lovely Mother's Day for you!

I think Father's Day will be hard for us since my dad so recently passed away. Losing a parent is so difficult.

Sending hugs!
