Happy Mother's Day, all you moms. And happy us, for without our mothers we would not be here!
Some things we did for our moms:
~ Mother's Tea (a dress up affair, complete with lace tablecloths, flowers, tea, and fancy cookies
~ Handmade fan for hot days and table tents
~ Tissue wrapped annual flower (we used cute napkins as tissue paper)
~ Scrapbook type of gift containing photos, school work, and samples
~ Meringue decorated sugar cookies (one of the many fancy cookies we had)
~ Card made with cut out hands of each student
~ Short program with songs and sign language
~ Slide show on hi-tech TV, along with background music playing
~ Tissue wrapped bedding plant for each mom (for both school and church, I had a surplus of Johnny-jump-ups volunteer this spring, so they were free!)
~ CupOGold chocolate candy bar for each mom, because they are as precious as gold to us
~ Special sermonette about moms
~ Baked potato and salad bar, smorgasbord from potluck provided toppings for both
~ Tissue wrapped annual (again, from my garden)
~ Shortbread cookie treats (shortbread cookies, topped with mango/orange/peach jam from Costco, drizzled chocolate, and chopped pecans - delish!)
~ Gift bag for moms of pretty smelling stuff (hand lotion, hand cream, bath gel, and new bath scrubby)
~ Hand stamped cards with an Asian influence, including my best try at re-creating the character for Mother
~ Cards mailed and texts sent to those family moms long from our location, but close in our hearts
Moms - YOU ROCK!
Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you. (Exodus 20:12, NKJV).
My son, hear the instruction of your father, and do not forsake the law of your mother; For they will be a graceful ornament on your head, and chains about your neck (Proverbs 1:8-9, NKJV).
