This is my third Mother’s Day! I am amazed at how quickly time flies. Jake was only three months old on my first Mother’s Day. It was a fun day. My mom gave me a very special present that day. It was a “grandparents book” that journaled my whole life through pictures and family trees. It took her countless hours to create the book, but I LOVED it and I still do. However, it is at her house so that she can update it periodically.
I love everyday that I get to hear the word Mommy. At times, I may wish to not hear it anymore that day, but I do love my boys and love to hear Jake say mommy (soon Judd will say ma ma :-)). Being a mother is the one of the greatest joys of my life. First is being a child of God, and second is being the wife to the greatest man, Jim Perdue.
Mother’s Day is a great day! It is even better now that I have children. Not from the point of view that I am Jake and Judd’s mom, but now I can truly appreciate my mom even more.
Mom: I just want to say thanks a ton for enduring the pain of birth on March 19, 1979. And thanks for putting up with all the mess I handed you as a child. You’ve put up with me 10,275 days and for that I’m grateful. There’s no doubt I’m blessed to have survived many of those days.
p.s. Jim wanted to know what I wanted for Mother’s Day. This is what I asked for: I want twelve hours of “me” time so that I can clean the house and run errands all in one day. How awesome of a day will that be??!!! I must say I can not wait!
I have to laugh at your request for Mother’s Day. I don’t know about you, but I never thought I would request free time to clean and run errands!
