They like me!

May is a grand month for me.
I love that the garden is coming to life with all the fantastic colors and blossoms.

And for this gal who has a love language of "gifts" it is doubly great. Mother's Day and my birthday. The best thing is that I have taught my children well and they are really good at gift giving! So I was treated yesterday morning with my favorite coffee drink, muffin,newspaper and lovely drive by my husband. Then a fantastic salmon lunch by Karl and Amy. I got to have my favorite pizza for dinner. I love my if you couldn't guess!

The other day I was going to check my email but was met by this sign on the office door:

the reason....Gary and Nick had gotten me an IPOD and Nick then spent hours loading songs and pictures and other info from my computer onto it! I love that he would be willing to invest time into something for me.

Secrets are easier to keep of course, if you don't live in the same house. After I opened the gift Amy made for me, Karl said she had been putting hours into it too. So this is what I opened....

May I just say, that gifts like this choke me up. I know how much work goes into something like this. But even more than that are the things she said in it. The things that she believes about me. Things that sometimes I don't believe about myself. I'm learning to see myself through others eyes, not my own distorted vision.

As I'm writing this post, I am listening to this and I am now a ready to stand and be noticed!

Thanks for listening and letting me share,
