These are the ramblings of an eclectic and whimsical homeschooling family of eight... a little peek, if you will, inside the daily dawdlings and habits of my active and delightful family seeking to please the Lord in all we do! Hopefully our thoughts, observations, and activities will challenge you, inspire you, tickle you, cheer you, and let you know you are not the only one!

Mother's Day blessings!

I must tell you that my family goes above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to spoiling me on special occasions as well as every day!! Mr. P leads the pack and has trained them all very well in this area!! Mother's Day was no exception. When quizzed by various children as to what I might like for Mother's Day, I gave them a few things that I would really like to have such as some new bath salts and a Mandevilla Vine for my mailbox. I was really excited knowing that my family would most certainly make sure I have the things I want. They are so good to me that way!!

Well, how shocked and amazed I was when on Mother's Day morning my family escorted me out onto our deck and this is what I saw!!Oh my goodness! I am IN LOVE!!! This swing is the most wonderful sancutary. It blocks the sun and lets me enjoy the glorious breeze! I've spent hours on it already.Mr. P then took me to the store today to choose plants for the deck to complete it's transformation into the perfect oasis. He told me he wanted to give me a swing where Noah and I could spend lots of quality time once he arrives. Have I ever mentioned what a blessed and thankful girl I am to be married to the most thoughtful and generous man on earth? They truly surprised me! I had NO idea they were planning something so elaborate!
Lest you think they forgot about my bath salt and Madevilla Vine, I received both in addition to a plethora of beautiful cards, breakfast prepared for me and served on my new swing and dinner sometime this week at the restaurant of my choice! Mr. P also took me out to lunch today just because. In addition to all these blessings, I received this special figurine that the children picked out for me. I'll cherish it always!My cup runneth over with blessing!

I L-O-V-E the swing and would love to know where your family found it.

I have the perfect place for it.

This is just what I have been looking for!
