Wow! What a weekend! I try not to share every detail of my life with you all. Mostly because it just isn't that exciting and I figure that isn't why you come here. I do enjoy blogs where you get to know a little more about the writers and their families and many know how to strike that balance perfectly without sharing too much or too little. I guess I'm saying all of this to let you know about Mom.
Last Wednesday she underwent hip replacement surgery and is in the process of learning to walk again. She is doing great and was able to go home Saturday - in time for Mother's Day. As with any surgery, there is a certain recovery period before you reach your "new normal". Even though she is doing great, I would be lying if I said that it isn't hard seeing her like this. Mom has always been the giving one, the one who does special things for each and every family member and never wants anything in return. We tried to make yesterday as special as possible, but I really wish we could give her the ability to walk around her beautiful garden that she enjoys more than anything. I know in time, she will be active again because Mom is very determined to do what it takes to heal as quickly as possible. She is in good hands too - love you Mom & Darrell.
In addition to celebrating Mr.'s birthday on Saturday, we also enjoyed middle school LAX playoffs. What a treat to watch an amazing group of boys play their hearts out for the victory!
My boys were super sweet to me this weekend. I can honestly say that I am honored to be their mother. They make me proud in the choices they make, the examples they set for others, and the incredible young men they are becoming. Tyler and Parker, I love you more than you know!
P.S. I mentioned this cake last week and wanted to let you know that it is yummy!
