The Bestest Mother's Day Ever & Mayflower Road

A little late in getting to my Blog to post about Mother's Day but I would like to share with ya'll what a wonderful day I had.

As most of you who follow my Blog know, my two sons both live 3,000 and 6,000 miles away from me.  It's been hard on this moms heart as I miss them terribly but realize that they have their lives and their dreams to follow and I'm extremly proud of both of them for the men they have become and the dreams that they are following.

My youngest son Jason lives in LA with my beautiful DIL Evy and my two beautiful twin grandbabies, Evita and DeAngelo.  My oldest son Erik lives in Maui and has for about 20+ years.  On Mother's Day my son Jason flew me out to celebrate the day as well as to attend the twins 3rd birthday party (May 8th).  Little did I know that there would be a huge surprise for in store for me as well.

On the Monday after I arrived, we were all planning on going to Disneyland for the day.  That morning Evy told me Jason would meet up with us later as he had to go into his office.  Well, we got to Disney, entered the beautiful Hotel California and to my surprise, not only was Jason standing there in the lobby but there was this guy walking straight at me with sunglasses on - did ya'll hear me screaming on Monday May 7th?  OMG! Jason surprised me by flying Erik in from Hawaii that morning!  I was stunned, excited and so happy as it was the first time I had seen my son Erik in 7 years - actually it was the first time in 7 years that we had all been together.  Needless to say I had the most wonderful week with my sons and cherished every minute.  I can never begin to thank both Jason & Evy for this incredible memory.

Erik, Mom, Jason

Come visit me at my little piece of heaven - I love my life on Mayflower Road
