Happy Homemaker Monday May13,2019

So as my life would have it I get my post ready really early this morning before the sun comes up and is 2:19 and I am just now getting it posted please bear with me as I try to navigate my new normal!
Mothers Day weekend was amazing! I spent time recovering at home after a unexpected hospital stay at the beginning of the week! 
My girls are amazing and have always made me feel special on Mother's Day and this year was no different! My Oldest bought me the prettiest Disney Princess  Animators  purse and wallet! My love for Disney has never diminished over the years! My girls love it as much as I do ! I love this particular Disney line!

My youngest drew me the most beautiful picture and had it framed for me ! 

Isn't beautiful! She is so talented! She also got me a humming bird feeder! I am so excited about it! I have grown a love for watching birds especially in the morning when we sit outside for coffee!

 Honestly they could not have bought me a thing! Because my greatest gift is them!
I have acquired a few extra kids along the way so when my husband and youngest returned from church two of these had sent these things! Which I thought was super sweet!!!

My Mom was also hospitalized earlier this week and is on bed rest for a week so we all decided to celebrate her this coming week so she could rest. I am blessed with a wonderful Mom and can't wait to have time with her!
Well enough about all of that... Today I am linking up with Sandra over at A Diary of a Stay at Home Mom . If you would like to join in on  the fun and meet some amazing blogger's follow the link below

Simple Pleasures ~
Since everything that has happened with my health we decided not to travel for our 25th wedding Anniversary. Instead we got a inflatable hot tub! Oh my goodness one of my favorite things to do in the evenings is soak in it and let it relax my joints! Its amazing....

Looking around the house...
My youngest cleaned really good before I came home from the hospital Thursday! I really just need to pick up the kitchen some and do some laundry... Other than that we are good to go.

From the camera...
Me with my beautiful daughters                                                    Christian and Claudia (god daughter)
My sister and beautiful Momma
What am I wearing.....
Well right now its still really early so my night gown. Later today t-shirt and carpi's *Actually ended up shwering and sliding on another nightgown! Its just easier on days like today!

Favorite Bible Verse for the week...
This also on my home screen of my phone!
On My Prayer List...
My Mom she is a lung cancer survivor! She was hospitalized last week with pneumonia! She is recovering and doing better! I just want her to make a full recovery.
I have a sweet friend who had a abnormal EEG 
Please continue to pray for me ! I was hospitalized again this time for extreme fluid on my feet and legs and if  I am honest all over! I needed IV lasix for a couple days. I have really scared my hubby and girls! 
I know God has got this ! We need some answers. I need to stay stable.
I am trying very hard to adjust to my new normal.... I just really would love some energy!
King who is 5 he has sickle cell and is in stage 2 kidney failure!
