Big Love from my Boys

It's so fun when I get to be a LUCKY GIRL. We actually don't usually do much for Mother's/Father's Day but this year my three boys (with the help of their Daddy) got me a new RING! The three of them scampered into my room this morning with SUPER SIZE smiles spread across their faces. They all three stood in a line and with wide eyes presented my gift. It was an especially BIG DEAL because we usually don't do gifts for this holiday.

It's from a recent new
favorite company of mine, LeVian.

LeVian Jewelery is absolutely gorgeous and I want an entire collection! They are from Israel. LeVian has the signature on chocolate diamonds and they also use a lot of strawberry gold. They call their the mix PINK CHOCOLATE! Strawberry gold is such a warm, happy alternative to the traditional white or yellow gold. I feel so spoiled and excited. Quality motivates me and propels me forward in life and jewelry is one of those girl things that make me smile inside out.

This definitely makes all those sleepless nights of baby cries worth it. {wink}

I also wanted to share a bit more of what my little heartthrobs did for me last month on my birthday. I'm not an early bird so I got to sleep in on my birthday. I woke up to the sound of VERY loud dishes. When I walked out, I saw all the boys anxiously whispering, cabinets all open, and their little feet moving about the kitchen. They had set me a special table for my birthday....ALL BY THEMSELVES!! I was so touched by it.

I was one thousand percent amazed at how 3 little boys could make a table look so beautiful with ZERO ADULT help!

And check this out! I was a super proud Mama to see how the place settings were all quite proper, with everything in the perfect place.

I delighted in their creativity and in the way they spoke my love language that day.

Oh, and Kotah has also been wearing my FAVORITE shirt lately. I told him he could get a tattoo before he moves out... ONLY if it was the classic Mom Heart Tattoo. We will see what happens...

Sooo, I learned a few things from little kids lately:

1. Get excited from my heart when I GIVE.

2. Give in a special way that speaks the person's love language.

3. Put passion into all gifts and acts of service that I do for others.

Our boys know how to give, as well as how to appreciate life, because of you! I see your joy and tenderness in their actions and it warms my heart. Happy Mothers Day BlueEyes.

Gorgeous ring, you luck girl! Your boys are SO SWEET and lucky to have a mom that inspires them to by caring and thoughtful towards others.

Best wishes,

I loved reading this post! You are so sweet and deserve every good thing coming your way. Love your beautiful ring and the sweet tablescape from the kids! YEA for them getting their table setting set correctly, but even if it had been upside down, it was BEAUTIFUL for the love expressed.

Exhibiting love and appreciation is a learned quality...and your boys have been experiencing this from day one. You and your husband are raising future great men. Gifts are always nice, but the "gift" of preparing some special service (setting the table) is beyond wonderful.

Hugs to all of you,
Jane (artfully graced)

Awwwwww, they sure love their mama. It's wonderful that you had such a fab Mother's Day!

Beautiful ring! Also, those boys are too much. I got a little weepy seeing what they did -- what they've learned to do -- for their mama. What a great way to show you how much they love you.

Isn't it the best feeling to see that look of pure joy on their faces when they give you their gift?

We also don't do gifts per se for mother's and father's day but usually plan a day together. At school this year my youngest made a cookbook with her class for me and her teacher gave her a JUMBO card for me. She could barely wait until morning to give it to me she was so excited!

Glad you had a great day and what a beautiful ring.

I came back by to read this again. I love this post! I can just feel the love you have for your family. And I think their tablescape deserves a standing ovation! :-)

Happy Tablescape Thursday!
