If you spotted my Insta story this morning than you are privy to the fact that today is in fact my birthday!  I woke up to a door decorated by my youngest with hearts and words of affirmation and a beautiful hand made card.  I will tell you I had to stop the story twice and shed some happy tears.  It was truly the most beautiful gift!

My love language is quality time and words of affirmation.  I feel the most loved when people chose to spend their precious time with me.  What means the most to me about this gift she created was how well my child knows me and how she pays attention to me.  I have never told her my love language, yet she knows.  After I tucked her into bed and climbed into bed myself she got up and created my precious door.  I recall hearing hustle and bustle in the hall way and sent Lawyer to check it out just as I was nodding off.  When I woke up this morning I found the door and a coffee cup on the floor filled with heart shaped chocolates.  Truly precious!

I will never forget this morning or the sacrifice she made for me.  She is so exhausted this morning as my girl requires lots of sleep but she traded it to make me feel like the most beloved mama on the planet.

And that quality time and her sacrifice is the best gift ever!

Happy Friday lovies!!!!

  6. Paige, I'm not a mom, but I can tell you that just reading about this touched my heart. This is the sweetest gift! Second time today that I heard a sweet mother/child birthday gift. Took my bestie to lunch today for her birthday. She told me that when she went out to get in her car this morning to go to yoga class that her son was waiting in his car outside. He had recently moved to town from NYC, drove across Austin on this cold January morning, and had a cup of hot coffee from Starbucks ready for his mom to wish her a happy birthday. He is taking her to dinner tonight, just the two of them. Best birthday present ever!
