A surprising Mother's Day...

Last night when I got home there was a handwritten note on the refrigerator that said OPEN ME.  Bethany had tucked a beautiful arrangement of fruit cut into a flower bouquet inside, so I was already feeling loved as a mom when I went to church this morning.

Just before the service started, I was talking with a couple of the Cobalters--a group of 20-somethings in our church who we have over each month for the "Rent's Due Free Lunch." A few months ago, Nicki dubbed me the "Cobalt Mom"--a title that completely makes me smile. 

When I looked up from the conversation I saw they were all standing around me and handed me a card and a little red box--which contained one of the most fantastic rings ever. A crazy and completely unexpected surprise.

Which as it turns out are the very best kind.
