PhotobucketLet the Mother's Day Celebrations Begin....

Look what I got in the mail today from my grown up Girl Childs.

One dozen mutli-colored roses...that had to be thought of, planned out, ordered on time and paid for. It made my day. I also got a sweet card in the mail yesterday from them about adult daughters and mothers. Please understand it wasn't the gift...though I do love flowers....but it was the relationship that the gift signified.

I had been a bit blue when I realized Mike would be preaching in 3 services on Sunday and we aren't going to be able to do a nice dinner or have a leisurely family day (and 2 of the kids are far away)....but really Mother's Day is about relationships - and in that I'm very, very blessed. I hear from the kids regularly, they serve the Lord, they still miss Mike and I, the older ones still at home are respectful (as are the ones out of the home ::snort::) but my point is that really it's not about gifts, or a nice dinner....but relationships.

The celebration has begun.

Lovely flowers and thoughts!

Since I'm not doing e-cards this year, "Happy (early) Mother's Day!, Sis."

Sis: What beautiful flowers. Those G'daughter's of mine sure are special. :)

Also thanks for the beautiful basket of future beauty you sent to me.

DeEtta praying you have a real special Mother's Day even with all the preaching Mike will be doing. Sure would love to be with you this year.

Also, Happy Mothers day to you other mother friends of DeEtta's.

Hope this message will be accepted. Not doing to good in that area lately.

love/prayers -- Mom T.

Those are beautiful. You are very blessed to have wonderful relationships with your grown up daughters. I don't have that with my mom and really, though I try to forget it, not a day goes by that I don't know that I wish for it to be different. Mother's Day makes it harder. However, I have the best family who treats me like gold so I still have a great day.

Ah Thanks, Darshia...and since I am so scatter brained - Happy M's Day to you as well. LOL

Mom - glad the gift arrived. I wonder why blogger gives you trouble. Nasty computers! ::snort::

"m family" - I stopped and prayed that you have a day that blesses your socks off. I'm sorry. Relationships can be so painful...and yet God calls us to keep keeping on.

AMEN about the relationships. I'm so glad our dd still values our input in her life.
