Before the end of Sacrament Meeting today the bishop announced for everyone to stay in their seats a little longer after the meeting because the young men had a little gift for every adult woman 18 years and older. I don't know if Wayne couldn't hear him or if he forgot but when it was time to give out the gifts Wayne was the first one up and standing. I pulled on his slacks to get him to sit down. He looked around to notice that he was the only male standing and probably the only person standing in the area we were sitting.
After he sat back down he explained to me that he was a mother too because he helped me sometimes. There were snickers and smiles coming from almost a whole room full of people that were sitting behind us. Maybe Wayne sensed that there was candy in the little boxes because on the drive home Mary gave Wayne her Mother's Day box. You know how much Wayne loves chocolate so he really enjoyed his little Mother's Day gift.
I loved all the attention from my children today! It was fun to hear from them and have them wish me "Happy Mother's Day." What is better than hearing your children express how much they love you? I am also blessed to be able to wish my own mother "Happy Mother's Day" even though I wished I could have shared the day with her. Of course we couldn't tell Mother Osmond "Happy Mother's Day" but I'll always think about her on Mother's Day and believe that it is more than coincidence that she passed away on this special day.
