Then they scurried off to wherever they had their little surprises hidden and came back, their gorgeous faces aglow with happiness.
I opened La-la's first. A beautiful handmade card, bookmark and necklace telling me to, "Enjoy The Little Things."

The Dude was jumping from foot to foot with excitement! I took his gifts of little handmade boxes and a notebook thinking that was it but the true gift was in the inside pages of the notebook.
"Open it! Open it!" he exclaimed!
I did and I found a list of words. Not just any old words but a list of words about how I make him feel. Here they are:
"Happy. Joyful. Glad. Delighted. Loved. Believed. Gleeful. Angry (sometimes but not that much!) Excited. Thrilled. Supported. Cared For. Cheerful. Surprised. Powered Up! Super. Terrific. Magnificent. Brilliant. Awesome. Cool."
I was floored!
And then I looked up and saw the love and joy beaming out from their beautiful faces. These two little beings - so happy that I am their mother. And I at once felt humbled and tiny and all-powerful and ready to take on the world.

Being a mum will challenge you in ways you never dreamed of but it also means being loved in a way you can't possibly ever imagine.
To all the amazing mums out there, I wish you a Happy Mother's Day. Enjoy.
