How Do You Make Perfect?

How does one make a perfect day?  You add the following ingredients together:

  • littles scrambling to clean the house, light candles and put table cloths on all surfaces
  • my favorite tea served with a long quiet time
  • breakfast served in my room
  • coming out to hugs and homemade cards and notes
  • blue skies and sunshine and mild temps
  • visit from adult children and grandbabyIMG_2751IMG_2693
  • yeah, I know, beautifulIMG_2717IMG_2737
  • listening to my son worship and play his new guitar
  • fun family photos



  • dancing with each of the men in my life



  • my requested delicious lasagna dinner
  • a nap with the breeze blowing on me
  • a walk at a new lovely park, complete with a beautifully restored historic barnIMG_3024IMG_3042
  • ‘it tastes so good it must be wrong’ molten chocolate chip cookies with chocolate oozing out and a scoop of vanilla ice cream


  • a shower and favorite perfume
  • sitting listening to all the beautiful evening songs from the birds




  • the most amazing (but normal Winking smile) children



  • this man! ( I love this picture of us!)


So many more little delights throughout the day.  Amazing grace.  Amazing love.  I so needed a day to refocus me on the most important ‘job’ I may ever do, being a mama.

I pray you had a lovely day and that your Father gave you all YOU needed today.

What a lovely perfect day! So jealous...most of my children didn't even remember to say Happy Mother's Day so my heart bleeds. My ideal Mother's Day would look just like yours.
