Well, I've mentioned before that I work for my dad and it certainly has it's perks. Mom Day's are one of those perks. You're probably asking...What are Mom Days? Well, you see all the other ladies in our office have children and most of the time he allows them to take off work early to go to sporting events or other school activities, take them to the doctor, or whatever they need. Normally this is taken as vacation, but other times it's just comp time. So...since Hubby & I don't have any children, my mom declared that I get some Mom Day's throughout the year to go run around with her or do fun things. A fantastic perk if you ask me!
My mom and I truly are best friends, and I can't imagine not talking to her everyday and bouncing ideas off her. We spend so much time together and while there are certainly times where we might disagree or not get along perfectly, she's my mom--I'm her little girl and those things will never change. Growing up she lifted me up in so many ways, taught me to love Jesus and trust in Him, and supported me in whatever my heart desired. Other girls would talk about how their mother's just didn't understand them or they never bought the right thing and they disagreed about almost everything in life...I never, ever experienced this. Those few times where I thought she was a crazy woman have now become some of the times I treasure most because she truly was just trying to protect me and make me into the woman I am today. They say you become your mother as you continue to grow up and I cherish the thought that someday I will become like the mother, wife, daughter, friend, and child of God that she has been. She is an amazing woman of God and how I wish everyone could experience the motherly love that I enjoy each and every day. Don't ever hesitate to tell your mom how much you love her...I know I don't do it often enough, but just pick up the phone and let her know--I'm sure she never gets tired of hearing it.
So, back to the title of this post. Yesterday was a Mom Day. I took off work and we headed to this fantastic little floral/ home decor shop called The Feathered Nest. They host Christmas workshops & decorating classes each year and we always come away with some sort of neat idea. The class ran from 9-1 and included a little lunch. After class, we headed to Hobby Lobby, Martin's Floral, and other places to finish off our decorating for the Holiday season. We had a great time and just loved hanging out. I came home last night completely refreshed and excited about finishing my Christmas Decor. Well, I didn't quite finish but I'm getting much closer. I love Mom Day's (possibly the best perk of working for my dad!)
