I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day! My family had a little cookout between church services and just relaxed all afternoon. I’m so happy that I spent the day with my mom. I have been so blessed to have her as such a Godly influence in my life and I love her so much!
I tried to put a lot of thought into my mom’s gifts. I made her a card with her favorite flowers drawn on it (lilacs), put together a cookbook of all of our favorite recipes to cook together, and painted her a ceramic mug and filled it with some goodies.
Jimmy also painted a dish for his mom for Mother’s Day! We went to a local ceramic shop a few weeks ago and spent the better part of an afternoon together painting our mom’s gifts.
Here’s what our pieces looked like before…
Here’s what they looked like after…
Now for a funny mom story: My mom and I were in a clothing store together yesterday and while we were checking out, the cashier said she saw us looking at clothes (with our backs turned towards her) and thought we were two teenage girls. Too bad neither of us are teenagers ;).
How did you spend Mother’s Day?
