I was absolutely shocked. I totally wasn't expecting a Bluetooth, especially one that matches my phone.
Funny Girl had taken Devon shopping on Saturday and had asked for suggestions and I really didn't have any. I wanted to tell her to get me the Casino Royale DVD but I didn't want to know what I was getting so I told her that anything was fine.
When they returned I asked her how much I owed her for everything and she refused to take any money or even tell me how much it was. Now I know why.
Devon was really excited and wanted me to use it right away. When I told him that it had to be charged he looked crestfallen.
Later that day we were heading out to Rico & Don's house for Mother's Day dinner and enjoyed barbecue chicken and all the accoutrements that go along with it. On the way there I tested my Bluetooth and left a message for Funny Girl asking her how it sounded and calling my mother to wish her a happy Mother's Day. I never reached her so I left a message. I did end up sending flowers as well.
All in all I had a fantastic day spending time with friends and family while Devon had a great time playing baseball with the other kids along with the occasional game on the Game Cube and loads of fun throwing Snap It's on the ground.
On the way home while listening to Harry Potter & The Goblet of Fire on cd I couldn't help thinking to myself how incredibly blessed I am.
I have friends who love me and willingly spend considerable money on me to make sure that my Mother's Day is celebrated with penache.
I have friends who invite me to spend the day with them and their family because to them, I AM part of their family.
I have a friend who always send me a Mother's Day card because she hasn't forgotten the day that I surprised her with her card and gift even though her daughter lives in Canada and no one else made an effort to make her feel special. I wanted her to feel as special as I know that she is.
I have a mother who was as happy receiving a phone call as she was receiving a gift for Mother's Day because she knew that I couldn't afford to send her something in the past.
And I have a son who loves me more then I can even put into words. He never fails to remember a holiday or birthday and goes out of his way to make sure that I receive something, even if it is just a pretty rock that he has found and a letter letting me know how much he loves me.
I am truly, truly blessed.
