Mothers Day #28

I have had 28 Mothers Days. My Mom has had 55 (before you do the math, I have an older brother).
Every year just seems to get sweeter and sweeter. I’m not sure if life gets better or the older I get the more sensitive I get. 

My daughter came to spend the weekend. I always look forward to that. She will come home again next weekend to celebrate my birthday. We got Mexican take out on Saturday night and then went for a walk in the neighborhood. On the way back from our walk, I stopped by an abandon house that was grown up with weeds. The yard was trimmed in knockout roses. I stole a few cuts to add to my table. I also had little Mothers Day pot holders for the moms in the family just for fun.

It was a good Sunday. We have been having drive through church services since the stay home order, but this Sunday we were back inside as usual. 
I am not sure if this was actually allowed in this phase of the pandemic but everyone kept their distance and plenty of hand sanitizer was available.
It was a good Sunday service as we celebrated the Moms.

Since we could not take mom out for Mothers Day, I decided to cook instead. I have been up since 7:00 this morning. I had 10 pounds of potatoes to peel and 38 chicken legs to skin for dinner (Chicken legs are about all we could find as the stores were low on meat). We also had macaroni and cheese and green beens. It was nice to see all of us together again and I think that made mom the most happy. 

My Mothers Day gift from my daughter was a gift certificate for a candle making class and a new shirt.
I love being a Mom and think I have the best daughter ever!

  2. Happy Belated Mother's Day! So nice to see your daughter and cook. Sounds wonderful! I think I have gotten more sentimental as I have gotten older. Love those roses! We planted knockout roses last year and they are blooming big time now!
    Have a great week!

  3. Sounds like you had a nice Mother's Day.
    Wasn't it hard to keep your distance at church? No plans for our church to start normal services yet.

  4. It looks like you had a wonderful Mother's Day Lisa :)
