It was so wonderful being with both of my Mothers this year for Mother's Day. What amazing, wonderful, aspiring example for me as now I have become a mother. I truly love them.
My husband has always dreaded this day. The day that men are supposed to read their wive's mind and cater to her every whim? Travis hasn't done so hot with the mind-reading thing. But he's learning :) I have one year said I don't like getting flowers, so that is my fault why I never get them. I have also said No breakfast in bed (those of you who know me well will understand a morning wake-up is not my cup of tea), and yes he has remembered that as well. :) So even though I was bummed with no morning greeting of hot breakfast in bed, or flowers decorating the table, I was greeted with hard working kids cleaning the kitchen, showered with hugs, cards, gifts they made and helped Dad pick out, a delicious meal with both of my moms there and a relaxing day as a family. I can never ever say that Travis doesn't try so hard to make me happy. He does everything in hi power to do so and for that I'm eternally grateful.
Bubby boy loves Dad with all his might, but he loves Mom with all his heart. His moods are set by mine and his tender soul needs my nurturing daily, even if it's just a little touch or head nuzzle. We laugh together like no one else and when he does things for me he goes beyond what I ask.
Oh, her eyes, her eyes, make the stars look like they're not shining
Her hair, her hair, falls perfectly without her trying
She's so beautiful, and I tell her every day
Yeah, I know, I know, when I compliment her she won't believe me
And it's so, it's so, sad to think that she don't see what I see
But every time she asks me do I look ok, I say
When I see your face, there's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing, just the way you are
And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while
Because girl you're amazing, just the way you are(yeah)
My little mika-moo. She is my little shadow, my little companion. She will give me the sweetest kisses and the biggest hugs, squeezes so tight and never lets go. She is so polite and loves to make mom happy by speaking kindly to her family and obeying. She is so independent but needs reassurance from those around her that she trusts.
They always say Marry someone who is nice to their mother, that's how they'll treat you. Travis loves his mother dearly. He is quite, never chatty, but would do anything for her and always gives the benefit of the doubt and has faith in all she says. A wonderful thing that Travis got from Vicki is how quickly she forgives. He may fuss and be upset, but usually doesn't quite know what's really wrong and it takes something quick and simple to fix it (like a loving touch) and the worry is no longer there. There are many others, but this I am truly grateful for :)
