Mother's Day

I hope everyone had a nice Mother's Day. I can imagine that it is very difficult for those in the process of adoption to celebrate when your children are so far away. My thoughts were with you on Sunday.

Z-man let me sleep in and I stayed in bed longer than I was sleeping because I could hear the preparations going on. The girls were so excited and their enthusiasm was contagious. I got right into the shower and had the fun of Cookie coming into the bathroom, seeing me, squealing, and running out; too cute! My girls had gone with daddy the previous day to the local market where they decorated a cake for me. It had no less than 4 Mother's Day signs on it and a huge pile of sprinkles. I received a handmade card from each girl and 2 dozen red carnations from Z-man. Princess capped off the gift giving by reciting a Mother's day poem to me.

Then we all pitched in and made a special breakfast, my favorite, eggs Benedict. Z-man had plans for a lovely picnic lunch at the beach, but unfortunately I came down with a stomach bug and spent the rest of the day in bed. Even though it didn't end as wonderfully as it started, it was the best Mother's Day ever.

It sounds like you had a very nice Mother's Day, except for not feeling well. I hope you are doing better now. I have just discovered your blog and I look forward to reading more of your posts. Ethiopia was my second choice after Russia. Beautiful children. I still might consider adopting from there in the future.

Oh, so sorry you got sick on Mother's Day. But I'm happy it was a good Mother's Day anyway.
