Mother’s Day 2017 ~ Blessed

Hannah and I joined mom and dad for our annual Mother’s Day dinner and it was such a wonderful evening!  We enjoy spending time together.

We attempted to take pictures in our normal location at the restaurant but due to the recent heavy rains and flooding the area was closed off so we waited to take pics back at mom and dad’s house.

We love you mom/grandma.  Happy Mother’s Day!IMG_4879

On this day of celebration I was acutely aware the many mother’s days in the past when my heart ached as I longed to be a mom.  For those whose hearts are longing to be a mom, please know I prayed for you.  For those who spent this day only being able to remember times with their mom, please know I prayed for you too.  So many dear friends have lost parents recently and my heart aches for you.  Lifting you up in prayer.

Mother’s Day with Hannah 2017

Mother’s Day was a great day from start to finish!  Hannah made breakfast  and offered to serve me breakfast in bed.  Although it would have been a treat, thinking about food and drinks being carried up stairs on carpet only a couple of weeks old led me to join her downstairs for breakfast. Winking smile

Hannah had created a sweet menu to introduce all the pieces of the meal she had planned.IMG_4871

The delicious meal included cranberry juice, a sweeeeeet treat, a brownie cut in the shape of a heart and then in two and milk.    IMG_4872

I love all the care Hannah took to make every part of this day special!

Hannah is super creative as you can tell from our breakfast and her gifts were precious too!  Grandma took her to the Dollar store and allowed her to choose things and it was amazing to see what she created with her choices.

It means so much to me that so many of her gifts are pictures she’s drawn of she and I together!!   At daycare she made this sweet mug with a plant in it.IMG_4947

Flood Repairs–It’s Almost Time and We’re Ready!!

It’s been 7 weeks since our flood and finally it’s almost time for the repairs to be started.  Hannah and I couldn’t be more ready!

2 weeks ago they repaired the missing ceiling and I will say it made a much bigger difference then I realized it would and it was a welcome change.  We’d been living with a gaping hole in the living room and kitchen for 5 weeks when the repair took place.IMG_4518

I was surprised how much every day noise went from floor to floor but I guess it makes sense when all that was separating the 2 floors was a sheet of plywood.  It did make it easy to call her for dinner though. Smile

It was such a treat to drive home and see a repair truck in the driveway.IMG_4706 - Copy

Taped and mudded.  I’d considered leaving the ceiling flat but it would be an additional cost to do so and in these days of finding extra $’s here and there it was an easy decision to have them put the popcorn ceiling back up.IMG_4708

It was still wet here thus the variety of colours.  IMG_4712

One of the things that happened in a number of locations that I hadn’t anticipated was that the ceiling paint bled onto the walls.  IMG_4784

I will say that I noticed it but just figured it was normal.  I was pleasantly surprised when I found out they will probably be repainting the main floor because of it.  What a treat!!  A fresh coat of paint make such a difference!  I’m going to go with a similar colour to what I have as everything has been chosen with the current colour in mind but will just be lightening it up a bit.IMG_4788

I received information from the contractor that the rest of the repairs should be completed next week and the week after.  Woot!!  We’ve been on hold waiting for the carpet to arrive but it should be in by Friday and the repairs can start next Monday.  Yay!

In the meantime, Hannah and Auntie Deb gave me these beautiful flowers to brighten our home and what a treat they are!!  IMG_4785

Easter 2017 ~ Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday is such an amazing day!  A day we celebrate that Christ is Risen!!  Easter is always a special time and it always reminds me of the Easter Sunday 4 years ago when my precious little girl invited Jesus to live in her heart!

Before going to church Hannah had fun gathering the eggs and treats.DSC_2302
