Pleasantly surprised!

And, boy, was I ever when my daughter and I were called up onto the platform at our church's Mother/Daughter Brunch on Saturday. Six mom's were honored by their daughters, and I was one of them! My daughter truly made me proud to be her mom. She spoke flawlessly, singing my praises (ahem). Afterwards many people congratulated me on what a good job she did. One even said she did the BEST job out of all the six speakers, so that just reinforced what I already knew! I love Tara more than she will ever know, and thank God for her every day.
Tara gave me this beautiful Dahlia and a sweet card. The Real Simple mag in the below pic is also from Tara. She has been supplying me with a subscription to this magazine for years now, and I love it! Tara, thank you so much for being a fabulous daughter!
I hope you all had a good Mother's Day, and I hope others who had a heavy or sad heart found some source of peace and comfort on a day that can truly be difficult.
