Happy Mother's Day!

What a weekend.

Yesterday we made Great Strides in the fight against cystic fibrosis for my niece.

Then today we celebrated Mother's Day. My children (with help from their dad) brought me breakfast in bed. Everything was delicious - especially the strawberries, or so they told me.

Scott gave me the day to do whatever I wanted - at first I thought I would spend it as a lady of leisure, catching up on my TiVo'd episodes of One Tree Hill (we all have our vices) interspersed with spontaneous napping.

However, I surprised us all by instead choosing to clean out everybody's closets. Oh, how glorious it was to have a day devoted solely to organization!! I cleaned and tidied and organized to my heart's content, with a few pauses here and there to play with Ashley and snuggle Owen and tickle Aidan. And a pause or two to remember the little one I never got to meet, the one I lost so early on that Mother's Day long ago.

Now all my little ones are tucked into bed, and Mother's Day is almost over. But I still have a half hour left of unlimited back rubs from Scott. Whoever invented this holiday was a genius.

Happy Mother's Day to all of you mothers out there - I hope your day was as lovely as mine!
