What a Day!

My sweet children and husband have made today such a special day. I did tell them that they might have amped it up a little, because they take care of me this well everyday!! (wink)
I was served pancakes and eggs, at my request, for breakfast.
Brian and I had a tenderloin steak for lunch, smothered in sauteed onions and cheese.
And for dinner, we always have roast chicken, but today they made me, Roast Chicken with Sun dried Tomatoes and Goat Cheese. I will have to post the recipe, it is divine!
We laughed, we cried (what's new ;-) I opened homemade cards and read the words, 'you are the best mom I ever had', only twice this year. (grin) Lilacs everywhere and so many hugs I am exhausted.
I am so blessed. What sweet rewards for being a mama!

Of course we took photos. I adore this man!

My sweet little girly girls!

My extremely handsome and STRONG manly men!

And, of course, the whole lot of them.

What an honor to have given birth to each and every one of these creatures! Thank you, Father.

(We have not mastered the art of at least one photo with everyone looking the same direction, eyes open, and smiling. But we have fun trying!)

One last thing, today the 200th follower signed up to follow She Looketh Well. What a privilege and a blessing to be able to share my heart with other women. I have attempted to welcome each and every follower, but have fallen woefully short! Forgive me? I appreciate you all and pray for each one of you. Please, always feel free to email me privately with questions, suggestions or prayer requests. Grace and Peace to you all!

Congratulations on your 200th follower - wow! That's awesome. I used to be on homestead blogger but have recently switched to blogspot and it is much easier to navigate so I'm hoping some day I'll have 200 followers too.

Your blog inspires me!

Happy Mother's Day!

I enjoyed reading about your day and looking at your photos. We, too, have not mastered the art of the everyone smiling and looking at the camera photo.

God bless you!

You have a beautiful (and totally fun!) family. I enjoyed visiting and hearing about your day... but it did make me a little hungry. Is it too late to go and get a snack? Yes, I think it is. Bummer.

Dear Michelle ~ What a beatiful post!! Your family is lovely!! AND you look sooooo happy!!

I have been away on holiday with my family so have been "out of the loop" with visiting my blogging friends. It's been fun stopping by at "your place" today.

With Love,
