Mother's Day Weekend...

What a wonderful Mother's Day weekend I had.  It all got started on Friday night with a delicious dinner with the hubby at Outback Steakhouse...yummy!  Then, on Saturday,  the entire family (both sides) was invited for a cookout and swim at Greg and Leslie's house.  The weather was a bit chilly but they had the pool heated to 87 degrees so the kids swam the entire day.

Greg loves to cook and once again he outdid himself in preparing food for everyone.  Leslie, of course, was still laid up with her broken leg so we all tried to take care of her as best as we could.

We almost had a tragedy during the day.  Leslie's brothers little grandson, 2 year old Chandler, was in the pool with the other kids and one of his swimmies came off.  He went under the water and his mom had to jump in to get him.  When she pulled him out, little Chandler was blue and unresponsive.  Thank God Leslie is a nurse...she knew exactly what to do.  We called 911 also and they responded with two police cars, an ambulance, a fire truck and the first responders.  They worked on him for a while and didn't leave until they were sure he was fine.  A huge thank you to the city of Nolensville for their quick response.

You just don't expect things like this to happen.  There were at least 15 adults right there by the side of the pool when Chandler went under.  It just goes to show how quickly something can happen and change everything.  It was very scary for everyone, but thankfully, we had a good end result.

On Sunday morning we had a beautiful church service in honor of all of our mothers.  So many of us have moms who have already gone to be with the Lord and Mother's Day can be hard for us.  It was for me, as my mom has been gone since December of 2000.  I miss her every day but am honored to have had her as my mother.  At the end of the church service, my husband, David, did the closing prayer.  In that prayer, he remembered my mom and what a special woman she was.  It was quite emotional.

After church Chris, Melodie and the kids took us to Cracker Barrel for lunch.  I love to go there on Sunday for their fried chicken...can't be beat.

Thank you to my wonderful family for making my Mother's Day
a very special one.
