Hi, there!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!
It has been a busy one for me so far!

Thank you all who has participated in this week's Tuesdays at Our Home link party.
Party is still live and going strong! You can find it here if you would like to stop by for a visit.

Sooo, on another note, I am sitting at Jiffy Lube the other day getting the yearly vehicle inspection done on my car when my youngest son calls me and tells me FedEx just delivered a box for me.
A box??? I didn't order anything. My son says " well, mom, it has your name on it and it is pretty big".

Hmmm... What could it be? I had no clue! 
So I finally get home and I have this huge package waiting for me with no return address. 
What is a girl to do? Get that box opened, of course! :)

And inside was a gorgeous basket full of chocolates and goodies!!!!
At this point, I am still looking for a card, can't find one, I have no idea who could have sent this basket to me.
So I get to thinking, if I have a secret admirer, how the heck am I going to explain this one. LOL


 And then I see it!!!

My son, who is on deployment right now on a ship in the middle of the ocean somewhere on the other side of the world had sent me this gorgeous basket for Mother's Day.
Did I cry? I haven't stop yet!!! 

I am so blessed! My husband and children always go out of their way to make holidays and birthdays very special for me, but I have to say, I was NOT expecting this. 
It was a huge surprised that touched me very deeply. I am still trying to figure out how he managed to do this! :)

My baby, if you are reading this, thank you so much for going out of your way to make this day special for me while you are thousands of miles away. I love you and miss you so very much and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers every minute of every day until I can have you home safely again. 
Gods Speed and praying you have safe travels and calm seas.

See you all soon.
