The Perfect Day

My first Mother's Day was perfect. Ed got up early with EJ so I could sleep in as long as I wanted. Then we had a leisurely breakfast of danish and I got my first Mother's Day gift -- gorgeous diamond earrings. I'm so excited I got something that I'll be able to keep forever to remind me of this very special day. I would have hated to have to throw out flowers in a week and have no keepsake of the day.

We then had a late brunch with my family, which was outstanding. Then we went to Ed's sister's house for an early dinner with his family.

My Mom's Mother's Day gift to me was tickets to go with her to see Il Divo last night. I saw them with her when they toured with Barbra Streisand, but this was their own tour. Two glorious hours with these heavenly men. Click here if you don't know who they are. I just want to put Sebastien in my pocket and carry him around with me forever. He melts my heart!

I came home late last night to find Ed, EJ and Jimmy all snuggled on the couch waiting for me to get home and go to bed. I love my three guys more than anything and I'm so blessed to have such a wonderful family on this very special first Mother's Day.

I almost forgot, the grand finale of their concert last night was "The Impossible Dream". I got all teary when I thought that EJ was my "Impossible Dream" for three years. For those of you who know the song, you know why it made think of all of you wonderful ladies. For those of you who don't know it, here are the lyrics...

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go

To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far

To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into Hell
For a heavenly cause

And I know if I'll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest

And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star
