This Mother’s Day was a special one for us, but it was also really different. A lot of things have been going on over the weekend that changed our plans. My mom was bitten by a brown recluse spider and has been in a lot of pain. You are welcome to google these spider bites, but I’ll warn you that they are a bit much and my weak stomach can’t handle seeing them. She has been in so much pain she can hardly walk AND she is doing a wedding this weekend, so we are all pitching in to help as much as we can (even though she is the decorating genius). So, we tried to make things as special as we could at home for her.
Ryan was caddying in the LPGA tour last week and was not around for the Mother’s Day festivities this year. I was bummed but the extra money that he made was more than worth it! We are after all trying to close on our new house this month and will be spending quite a bit of money. haha So, this side job came at a very good time. Plus, he loved every minute of it! It was therapeutic for him to be out on the golf course all week and I am so happy that he got that opportunity. We are going to celebrate with my Mother-in-law next weekend and I am really looking forward to that!
So, while last week/weekend was a strange one to say the least, it was also filled with wonderful memories. I got to spend lots of time with my kiddos and I even woke up to beautiful roses and the sweetest card from Ryan that brought me to tears. I felt very special and loved and I hope my mom felt half as special as I did. She is a wonderful lady who is selfless and is such a peacemaker. She is a hard worker and loves all of us unconditionally – and trust me, some of us have definitely tested that! Not me, of course 😉 (haha! Love you, mom!)
