Happy Mother's Day!

Andy & I did a complete role reversal yesterday. I "preached" at South Bay, while he bent over backwards to make an incredible breakfast for me and take care of the kiddos almost all day long! I think we both have a greater appreciation for the other person's role after walking in their shoes. :-)

Andy made blueberry pancakes, bacon, and juice for breakfast...which is no small feat when you're trying to do it while managing two little boys who are full of energy from a good night's sleep! Breakfast was so yummy and the little "goodies" were much appreciated.

In addition to this, Andy ran over to Starbucks (we have one in our apartment complex) and got me my favorite drink...a non-fat Chai tea latte, of course!

Then it was off to church. I must say that it felt quite nice sipping my latte on the way to church while I enjoyed the peace and quiet of a little prayer time. It was a welcomed change of pace from loading up the Littles all the while trying not to get dirt or snot on my Sunday clothes! That's what Andy got to enjoy this Mother's Day.

I shared at all three services and it was such a joy to have that privilege. Someone said to me yesterday, "You should do that more often." I just laughed and said, "Are you kidding me? I've been working on this talk since LAST Mother's Day! I don't know how Andy does it ever 7 days!"
