Every year, Mothers Day has taken on a different feel for me. I would have loved to have spent time with my own mama, but she’s been gone since 1997 – I sure miss that sweet, spunky woman. This has been the first year for me to not have all four of our children home. Our oldest daughter moved six hours away to Boise, ID for work. I really miss that girl. And then, our middle daughter was committed to attending her boyfriend/almost-fiance’s nephew’s first birthday party in southern Oregon this weekend. So, the kiddos still here took me to brunch last week – we skipped the crowds yet it was still festive since it was also Cinco de Mayo weekend and we enjoyed yummy Mexican food. Then, for Mothers Day, we spent time with Mike’s mom in Longview, WA after serving the church nursery. And my Idaho girl called me and told me she missed me. =) What more could a mom ask for?
Hope your weekend was full of family and friends, and included some time in an apron!
Be sure to show some special love to our sponsor, Carolyn’s Kitchen. If you didn’t receive a new apron for Mothers Day, maybe you should treat yourself??
