Happy Mother’s Day

Throughout my life I’ve interacted with the traditional mothers, those who’ve had their own or adopted children. I’ve also met plenty of women who didn’t have children of their own, but they surely nurtured and acted motherly to those they’ve interacted with.

In honor of Mother’s Day, there will be a special service at out Lutheran church. Several children’s choirs, including the one that my daughter’s is in, will be singing.

I received my Mother’s Day present a day early…

Yesterday my daughter handed me the gifts she’d made, and told me, “Mommy, I couldn’t wait until Mother’s Day!” Which was fine by me, I don’t get into the holidays too much but I still will do things for others because I know some do recognize them. My daughter made me two gifts; one of her drawings, she’s such a talented artist. A few of her pictures have been featured locally, and she gave me a coupon “chore book.” How thoughtful!

It will be a relaxing day for us. Yesterday, I completed a lot of yard work including mowing down an area that was wooded.  I thought it would make a nice spot to sit when the fireflies finally make an appearance. Today it will feel great to relax, while hanging with my daughter. Perhaps… I’ll even get to work on my crocheted Coraline.

Father’s Day will be here soon… I’m tempted to stop by the local yarn store and see whether they have a specific yarn available. I know they have a special sale for this day. Naturally, I don’t have the yarn in my little yarn stash, to use for my dad’s Father’s day project, so my daughter, and I will most likely stop by the store on our way home from church.

I was able to complete all my Mother’s Day gifts, on time; they were all handmade, even the cards. The recipients actually love hand crafted items, and I know what they like, so these gifts won’t be wasted.

Hopefully I’ll be able to share some of the photos this coming week. 

Happy Mother’s Day!
