Happy Mother's Day to all you awesome mommas out there!
And, most importantly, Happy Mother's Day to my awesome mom!
Right now I'm putting my feet up for a few minutes before I head out with the kids to the beach and the antique barn... later we're going for beer and seafood!!! My day started bright and early ~ I ran 12 blissful miles in perfectly cool weather, then we went to church, then we had breakfast at the cafe and it feels so good to sit down now.
First I wanted to show you the pouch I made for my mom. It was my first time making one from this pattern and I tried so hard to make it wonderful, but I have to admit this is an awfully flattering picture...
Everytime I make something for my mom I feel like a kid again ~ drawing a picture, trying my best to make it beautiful and biting my lip. She called me to tell me she received the pouch and that she likes it, so I'm happy. She also mentioned during our phone call how my sister had called her earlier in the week complaining about her sore knee (my sister is training for a relay race), and how her two daughters always call when there's something to complain about. Um, duh ~ that's what I was thinking. That's what moms are for right??? I may be in my mid 30's, but when I get sick or something is wrong the first person I want to call is my mom. It's comforting. Just like blankets and soup. I tried to tell her she should take it as a compliment but I don't know if she was buying it. Then I saw this...
Yes. You see, Mom. You've always put up with a lot from us... I guess the Mom-job is never-ending. Thanks for picking up the phone when I call. I love you. Happy Mother's Day!
