May… I love so many things about May. May is the month where we open our pool. And even if it aways starts out looking like a not-so-attractive pond, it only takes a few days to look way better.
May also has 5 family birthday’s in it, including 2 people that live here so that means lots of cake. And May also contains Mother’s Day! Yahoo for Mother’s day! I have a wonderful Mother who has always loved me unconditionally, has supported me through everything and been an amazing example of what a godly mother should be. And so it’s never a chore celebrating her.
And now that I’m a mother, I love how on Mother’s Day the kids make an effort to tell you how they feel. I love getting their cards and Erik made me another Wordel this year…
Oh it makes me smile, to think that this is how I appear in my 8 year old’s eyes… it actually makes me humble and gives me the desire to actually live up to these things that he sees!
But what made me smile the most Mother’s Day morning was the gift that I received from Jason and the kids. My very own….
Makita cordless vacuum!!!!
And before you other moms groan and roll your eyes because I received a ‘tool’ for Mother’s Day, let me assure you that I’ve been asking for one of these for years and I love it! And I think that it’s especially cool that my sweetie-pie went out and got me a Makita which is the brand that he uses for all his tools. He buys quality tools for himself and he extended that honour to me and I think it’s so cool that our tools match.
And now I can quickly vacuum up little messes in the house and car and what housewife wouldn’t be thrilled with that? Well maybe it’s a large quantity of kids making messes thing, because I can assure you that for this mom of 4 it will be a life-saver.
Oh – and other great thing about May is that it has a long weekend in it and that’s this coming weekend. There are just so many things to love about May!
