Mother's Day

Mother's Day included:
-yummy breakfast made by Sam
-gift of beautiful music
-stunning bouquet of my favorite white lilies and white roses
-sweet words, written and spoken
-"free music and hugs booth," created by Wesley (free deliveries, too!)
-homemade Guru's cilantro-lime quesadillas, also made by Sam
-Talenti gelato
-talking to my mom
-leading the Primary kids in sweet songs
-perfect weather
-everyone humoring me for a 2-minute photo shoot in front of the house
-news of my grandfather's passing
-researching flights to Utah (ultimately decided not to fly out)

All in all, it was a beautiful day. Being a mom is really, really hard sometimes and it's nice to take some time to reflect on the importance of that role and my gratitude for the influence the moms in my life have had on me.
I was glad for the chance to think more on my grandpa, too, and the lasting legacy he left behind.
I am going to miss his laugh, his wit, his ready smile, and the bright twinkle in his eye.
I'm so grateful we got to see him at Christmas time.
His influence is eternal!
