Mother's Day for me was one of the best. With church at nine a.m., I woke early to breakfast in bed and four smiling faces. The presents they gave me were much more than I deserved and proved definitively that diamonds really are a girl's best friend.

Leaving for church, I glanced behind me with a smile at the spotless kitchen that I had nothing to do with cleaning.

Lunch and dinner were made while I sat on the couch in my bare feet with the iPad. Diet cokes were topped off and treat samples brought to me for tasting.

I tried not to laugh too hard at the sight of the Husband decorating the coconut cupcakes. Somehow a pastry bag does not look very much at home in his big hands. But they were as delicious as they were beautiful.

I was pampered and loved, and felt utterly appreciated.

These four fantastic people in my life are a miracle. I love them with the whole of my heart.

Sounds lovely. Maybe that'll be my next year. This year, husband with morning church meetings, church at 1:00 and an hour drive after to visit grandma. Not so great. At least I didn't have to change any diapers.

Seroiously... I've been thinking... we do so much as mothers, don't you think we should petition for an extra day a year?

Glad it was a good one. :)

Hi Christie!

My Grandpa Jiggs blog is linked to an email account that I rarely use so I just barely saw your comment! But I actually was planning on getting it made into a book, I just haven't looked into it yet. I'll be in Thailand until the end of June but once I'm home I'll figure it all out and let you know! Thanks for commenting, I'm glad people in our family like the blog! :)

I think you need to have Josh post a How-to make these... SO yummy. And - you don't feel as guilty about eating it. After all, it wasn't a whole cake! Am I right?
