Not Me Monday - Mother's Day

It's been forever since MckMama's been able to host a "Not Me Monday." In case you weren't aware, her youngest child was in the hospital for almost 2 months! Check out her site and read Stellan's harrowing story.

As for my "Not Me's," yesterday was so beautiful! Just take a look!

I did not have breakfast waiting for me when I got out of the shower. I'm always the first one in the kitchen preparing food.

At church, I did not have to work in the pre-k department for Mother's Day while all the other Moms were honored in the sanctuary with special music and a special sermon. But, I sure felt special when they brought in a beautiful carnation as a thank you for being there with those crazy little 4 year olds.

I couldn't have received this awesome new all-in-one printer from my family. They're not always so in tune with my likes and dislikes, but this time they hit it right on! I can't wait to hook it up!

There's just no way that I could have had all of my favorite foods on one plate! But I did! My family let me pick the entire menu. Shrimp, scallops, asparagus, a little salad and corn on the cob. And by the way, I ate every bite, plus a slice of New York Cheescake.

I did not then spend a beautiful, leisure afternoon with my family. And my kids can't possibly be the best kids in the world and I'm not blessed beyond measure. *smirk* Yeah Right! ;)
