I am a HAPPY Mother!

A happier mother there cannot be than me! Craig, Ragan and I arrived home very late Saturday night/Sunday morning from a volleyball tournament in Phoenix. I was dreading coming home to all the mess I made in the rush of getting out of the house that morning. I was so surprised to find a clean house! Mark had cleaned and vacuumed. He even did the dishes! This is what I found from Makenzie.... A dozen roses and gift certificates for a manicure. There was also a wonderful card full of sweet things that she wrote to me. Then...here we are before church. I was so happy to have Craig come. I can't remember the last time he was in town for Mother's day. He asked for a list of things I would like him to build me out in the wood shop. He knows that I would rather have him build me something than spend money on gifts....however, my list is pretty long. He has no idea what he's in for! After church, I got some great news! Cameron is coming to see us! He will be here today and will stay until Friday morning. I can't wait to see him. I am so thankful for my family. They are such a joy in my life.
