A good day to be a mother

Mother's day 2009 was a good day! My wonderful mother came in town. Saturday was full of activities...t-ball game at 11:30 (HOT!) and a birthday party in The Woodlands. My mom so graciously agreed to babysitting John while Tim and I went out to dinner with our good friend's The Raverty's for Jason's birthday.

I have to brag on myself for a moment, b/c I found the perfect gift for my mom. My Mamaw Young passed away after a sudden illness in 1997. It was devasting to my whole family but was especially hard for my mom and myself. We were extremely close and I feel like she died too young. She was only 64. To this day, I can't talk about her without tearing up. I will never understand why God had to take her from us but I do know He has his reasons and I should never question why.
Anyway, onto the gift...I gave my mom a necklace with John's picture on it for Christmas so I thought to myself, I should do the same necklace except with my Mamaw's picture. Here is the picture I used. Patricia Ann Young was such a beautiful soul, inside and out and is dearly missed every day!

Back to Mother's Day...

On Sunday, we had every intention of going to church but just couldn't our act togehter in time to make it to the 9:30 service. I've got to work on that! Before I knew it, it was time for brunch at Bentwater on Lake Conroe with the Spengel's and Schoenherr's. Brunch was delicious, as always. Mom headed home straight from Bentwater and we got home just in time for naps! Ahhhh, nothing like a good 2 hour nap on a Sunday afternoon.
