Mothers, Babies and a Day Off For Me

Mother’s Day was good to me, even if I’m not a Mommy myself. I actually got to have the day off, the first since President’s Day. My mother is on vacation so I wasn’t able to spend time with her, but I had an opportunity to go to church and witness the baby blessing of Celeste’s baby, Liliana. Such a beautiful baby girl and she didn’t cry at all during her blessing. Afterward Celeste’s husband, Shane gave a wonderful talk. I have a whole new respect for this man after I heard the wonderful things that he said about his wife.

In the early evening I took off to the park and spent some time with another single friend, where we had a great time feeding the ducks, even thought there were signs everywhere not to feed them. Yeah, I know I’m soooo rebellious! We made the excuse that it was Mother’s Day and the mommies were just getting their presents.

It doesn't sound like much of day, but to have a full day off of work and spending time relaxing with friends is always a good day. To all you mother’s out there, thank you for all you do, not only for your children but for anyone else that you have influenced in your life.
