I don’t remember if I’ve ever had a great Mother’s Day. In past years, odds were high that one of us was working. This year was just wonderful. Seriously. It was a weekend at home that had every great ingredient. Beautiful weather (sun and 70s-low 80s). Kids that slept well. No one sick (!). No one on call. No work stress. Family in town with not one but two celebratory brunches. I did barre (at home) on Saturday and ran 6 mi in clear sunshine on Sunday.
Josh gave me earrings, Annabel gave me a homemade necklace AND plate AND photo (with her quote: “I love my mommy bigger than the world, only because she is my mommy”). Cameron gave me giggles and smiles and kisses.
So, yeah. I may be entering yet another call week (I seem to have front-loaded the year), but my heart is full and happy.
ALSO: I have 0 emails in my inbox and am filled with GTD-inspired ideas. Hooray!
