date with mom

I hope you are all enjoying these last few weeks of sweet, sweet summertime.
Yesterday was a really special day.

I was blessed to spend it with my sweet mother.

You'd think that we see each other all the time living so close, but with busy work schedules and lots o' little kids running around, we rarely meet up.  We text everyday for sure, but not a whole lot of the up close and personal, face to face goodness that we all just need sometimes.
I never feel judged, unloved, less, or insecure around her.
Safe would describe how she makes me feel!  Does that make sense?

Yesterday was a day devoted to spending time with her.  Lots of hands helped with my children so that we could go shop, eat, and chit chat all the live long day.
{thank you}

She is one of God's greatest gifts to me...


But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
    Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Galatians 5:22-23

May I mention that my mom has recently inspired me?  
Well, she always does, but within the last several months she has been determined to feel better, live better and be a healthier version of her already amazing self.    She started taking the Shaklee RX for a Healthier Life  and she also started walking one mile on the treadmill{or less}.  Now she has worked her way up to walking three miles outside AND she jogs nearly half of it. 
Here she is sans FIFTY lbs. 
Looking and feeling GREAT. 
I even got her into the GAP and she found JUST what she had been looking for.  {yes!}
Isn't she cute?
Yes.  I am tooting my mom's horn.
She deserves it!  :)

Go, mom!

Here is one of our latter stops of the day.
I am really thankful for opportunities like this to spend precious time with our loved ones.

Have you done anything with your mom lately? :)

Blessings to you all for a restful, refreshing weekend!
