My Favorite Mother's Day Gift

It's hard to choose what gift was my favorite yesterday.

A.  Gift card for a massage
B.  An excessive number of goodbye kisses from my boys as I left for work
C.  The 45 solid minutes I got to read my book while my kids played happily outside
D.  The steak my husband grilled for supper to a perfect medium rare
E.  Isaiah saying, "I love broccoli!" and voluntarily snarfing down two pieces of broccoli at supper.

I've decided that E is more of a miracle than a gift, so I'm going to go with ALL OF THE ABOVE!  Seriously, Evan and I were just gaping at each other across the dinner table, silently asking one another what kind of body-possessing alien had taken over our son that he was so jazzed about his broccoli.  It took me back to the days when he would gobble up nearly anything I gave him. 

Lord, give me strength.  He was 9 months old!  Now he's like, a little man!

At least it isn't a Harley just yet.

And then there's this guy:

Yup, I'm a lucky mama!
