I know yesterday was Mother’s Day.
But I was too busy with my Mother to do a post about it on the very day!
So, here it is a day late. 🙂
My Mama is very special to me.
She is the encouragement and the hope from the Lord that helps me through each day. The gift from my Jesus to encourage and establish my faith, even in the darkest moments, and the one person who WILL listen to me and pray with me, no matter what!
The life lessons she has shared with us, and continue to share with us will go with us throughout our lives. They will come to remembrance when we are faced with questionable circumstances and we’ll remember what she has taught us.
I am so thankful for my Mama. Jesus truly gave me a wonderful, special, and unique gift when He chose her to be my mother.
My sister and I and our Dad worked to make the day special for Mama.
Daddy went out with her while she picked flowers (as well as brought in a bunch of roses for her last night. 🙂
I think Mama really enjoyed arranging all the flowers in vases and putting them in different rooms in the evening. 🙂
After morning service we took her down to visit the goats.
She and Daddy hardly ever get down there during the week – only on Sundays.
Then we made a special meal for her – her favorite. 🙂
Mama LOVES bacon sandwiches! 🙂
We set our best silverware out. 🙂
And then had Brownies for dessert.
She loves brownies – and homemade are always the best, of course!
Then there was the opening-gifts-time. 🙂
Mama loves to fix up the house and decorate; we got her things she could work with.
Covers for her bed, candles, and K made a hand-embroidered sampler and framed it for her.
I think she really liked that one. 🙂
And the new quilt for her bed.
(one day this will be handmade too!)
We worked hard to make it special.
Because we love our Mama.
And because….unlike other things in your life where you can buy a replacement or pick up another copy.
you only have just one.
