Family ~ The Name is Mom

You don't choose your family. they are God's gift to you, as you are to them. -- Desmond Tutu

After celebrating Mother's Day with a simple lunch with my mom and my family, I am quietly grateful. A card or two, a bottle of my favorite perfume and couch dwellers laughing together at a very silly movie.

I couldn't ask for more. Or less.
They are the best people I know and the ones I love the very most.
The perfume, while lovely, is superfluous when I consider the hearts beating around me. Mine, all mine.
What joy.
