Mother's Day

I have had a wonderful Mother's Day. We had a really nice service this morning at church. We had a baptism, which is always special. (Our new Godson was also baptised this morning in CA.) Allan preached about Lydia. He stressed how important the women of the Bible were to the spread of Christianity. The youth gave all the mom's flowers after church was over, and the men served cake and punch. After our second church service, we were glad to be home and relax. I opened presents and cards. My son has definitely inherited his father's silver tongue, as he wrote me such a nice note in my card. My husband's cards are always so special. I actually have saved every card and note he's written me all these years. I got a new watch (since I lost my old one in the yard!), and two new cookbooks. I can hardly wait to make out my grocery list tomorrow and have all new things to cook. I talked to my mom on the phone for a good bit, and then my mother-in-law. We're so blessed to have such an awesome family. The funny thing is, is that everyday feels like Mother's day to me, because I'm so well treated all the time. I never feel unappreciated, or put-upon. I truly have a wonderful life.

Glad to hear you had a wonderful day!

The Red Hat Ladies started because of that poem on my blog. My mother is itching to get hers!

That is awesome that your family treats you so well...I too am happy you had a good Mothers Day. Praise God for the baptism too! :)

Yeah, I figure the girls will eventually work thru it, but in the meantime it hurts. They went out of their way to make sure I understood they were NOT wishing me a Happy Mothers Day yesterday. Oh well. This too shall pass.
