Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend. Our son came home to spend the weekend with us. I told him that was the best gift, him coming home. We got to talk to our daughter and my mother-in-law on the phone which was great since we couldn’t be together in person. I received thoughtful presents, beautiful cards, and my husband took us out to eat after church today. It was a wonderful weekend!
My thoughts went back to my own mother who passed away 12 years ago. I remember how she helped me with all the many reports I had to do in fourth grade. Writing was not my favorite thing to do, but she would edit my papers and have me do them over again until I had them correct. She taught me things about verb tenses and correct grammar usage, things I use nearly every day in blogging. I think she would be happy to know that I use those writing skills today.
I also remember how my mother was always a room mother for my class at school, made the most delicious cut-out sugar cookies with icing for school parties, made the best pie crust I have ever tasted, always had ice cold Kool-aid for me and my friends on hot summer days playing outside (the brother of one of my friends called her “Mrs. Kool-aid”), and how she would read Luke 2:1-20 often at bedtime, and that was my favorite to have read to me before going to sleep. I feel blessed to have had her for a mother. So many blessings!
Here’s our menu for the week. I still haven’t decided on Tuesday’s main dish but will have to soon since I’m running out of time. Dessert was easy! 🙂
