Happy Mother's Day from Naija!

Mother's Day was looking good right from the start here in Naija.:)  I woke up to eggs and bacon cooked by some tiny hands and one great chef!:)  Then, I was "showered " with some precious gifts.:)

Mother's day book, homemade flowers and card:)

Beautiful flowers from my hubby:)

getting ready to go to church

I will treasure these flowers forever!:)

And who can beat some of the best sushi I have ever tasted along with some of our great friends from Lagos???!!  Yes, you can have fantastic sushi at Fusion in the Lagoon on V.I. (and no, I am not being paid to say that!) 

And one of the most magical moments of being a mom is watching your little one sleep.  There is something so peaceful and innocent about a child sleeping.  It is one of those times when time seems to stand still and you can just drink in the beauty of your child.  It is a time when all the whining and the complaining of everyday life drowns out, and it is just soft and peaceful.  Have you ever felt like at that moment you can really "see" your child???  I have those moments sometimes.:) ( Funny how they usually happen to me when they are asleep! ha ha!)
It was  a wonderful third Mother's Day in Lagos.:)  I can't imagine my life without my two precious little spirits. I am so happy that they came into my life!:)  Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms out there!  I hope you are able to really "see" your children  today:)
