Happy Mother's Day!

I have had a fabulous day so far! My children made breakfast for me this morning! It was toast with strawberry jam, a banana, a bowl of fiber 1 cereal(that had been sitting there for about 10 minutes) and 3 little chocolate donuts! Perfect! I also had a little chest of treasures waiting for me. They were thoughtful and useful gifts that I am very thankful for! The cards were especially heartfelt! Lainee made me a book and included the thing that she thought was my absolute favorite thing to do~ snuggle with her! She is right about that!! Nathan made a card that said, "I love you mommy! Thanks for everything!" Riley wrote me a sweet card that made me cry, and Jake recited a poem~ I would love to share it with you. I tried to scan it, but it isn't working quite right so I will type it for you.

Mom, I adore you,
I think your the best.
How beautiful are you,
In your dress of blue!
Mom I adore you,
I think you are swell.
I will never throw you down a well!
Mom you are awesome,
And that's not a lie,
But when you spank me it makes my cry!
Mom I love you and dad too,
Don't get me wrong.
But I love when YOU sing me a song.
Mom I adore you
I think you're the best!

Pretty talented kid, don't you think so! He is so funny! The coolest thing that my family gave me this morning were some earrings. Let me explain. I have a long string of pearls that belonged to my great grandmother. Some time ago the pearls broke. I gave them to my neighbor to see if she could fix them. She did fix them for me and I LOVE them! Well, without me knowing, she kept 2 little pearls from that necklace and made them into the prettiest earrings!! I received them this morning! What a thoughtful thing for my husband and my neighbor to do! They are beautiful and have such special meaning! I am blessed!

My family also took me to my F.A.V.O.R.I.T.E restaurant today for lunch! Napolis!! It is a little family owned Italian restaurant and it is FABULOUS! They had flowers for all the moms and they also had a craft table for the kids to make Mother's Day cards. My children thought that table was just for them and they made a couple cards a piece! SWEET! I loved every minute of it! Thanks family, You are the best!

Happy Mother's Day to all the fabulous mothers we know! Especially our MOTHERS!!

Love, The Ators

Be Blessed~


  1. I LOVE Jake's poem! I just read it to David and we were both laughing!
