He arranged his own birthday breakfast this morning, at Mimi's. He invited his siblings and we had a great time. Even Amanda came down. (We did miss Doug, Tricia, Jeff, Ben & Jeremy - can you believe how big our family is getting??)
Apparently I've done such a smashing job as a mother, that I've worked myself right out of a job! Being a mother is terribly tiring, messy, frustrating, embarrassing, gross, there is a lot of yelling, sometimes swearing, lots of tears (on both of our parts) and, well, I could go on, as all of you mothers know. I must admit though, that every hard, sweaty, humiliating moment was worth it! Every day I thank my Heavenly Father for my beautiful children and their families. I have not done nearly enough to deserve the rich blessing that they are in my life. It is indescribable, the deep love I have for my family, including Mr. Handsome, who has been through it all with me - I'm so glad he is on my team! Happy Birthday, Shane and thank you to my whole family, you have all taught me so much and hopefully, I'll keep learning from you!
