Mother's Day 2009

I don't know how she did it, but she finished my Mother's Day gift - here it is! I LOVE IT!! THANK YOU, sweet Shayla!

I had a perfect Mother's Day! Watching Shayla ride is always such a treat and yesterday it was a surprise too. After taking Skeeter all the way down the lane, she returned with a surprise I didn't even see. She had a little lillac hidden behind her back for me. I love the smell of lillacs. We were also able to visit with Shayne's mom last night. It's always great to see her.
Thanks for a perfect day, Miss Shay!

Thankfully, Christi's Uncle Gil went to the cemetery yesterday to visit with dad and Christi because I just couldn't do that. He also left a gift for Christi's birthday with us. Shayla wants to open it. I'm actually dreading that, but we will.....tomorrow on her birthday. Ergh! (Shouldn't she be opening her own present?)

Three generations: Baby Shayla with her grandma Nee Nee (Shayne's mom) and her recently deceased great grandma. Photo taken in 1999.
Shayla made this Mother's Day card for me last year, 2008
I think she was surprised when I pulled out her handy work from last year.
This year, I also received a decorated envelope. Check this out - simply gorgeous!

Shayla, you are too sweet!

I am glad you had a nice day, Angela. I am thinking of you todayand sending many hugs to you. You're right, Christi should be opening her own gifts. We miss her so much!

Loads of love,

Glad you had a good Mother's Day...I won't even try to imagine how hard it is and will always be without Christi right there sharing in all the fun and joy. I guess time does not heal all wounds. You are a sweet mom to two beautiful girls, and nothing will ever change that!

Shayla, as always, is looking fabulous. She looks like such a natural on a horse! She is a real sweetheart.

I've been thinking of Christi today, on the blessed day of her birth. My heart goes out to the Thomas Team! Prayers for strength and comfort.
