|Love notes discovered in the wee dark hours of the morning|
There is no charming picture of me with my children clustered around me on this Mothers' Day because as of Sunday, I'd been sick for four days with a nasty virus and had slept for two hours the night before.
|From John (8)|
My best gift was that I have a considerate husband who kept the children occupied downstairs--with much outdoor play and even taking them to Mass by himself--so I could stay in bed all day.
|From Mary (6)|
Mothers know that they almost never get a sick day but still have to take care of the family even when ill, so yesterday was a real blessing to me.
|From Margaret (4)|
I think I am past the worst of it and can parent from the couch and a bit from my feet today as Chris goes back to work.
