I really don't need cards and gifts on a specific day to feel loved as a mother. It used to be very important to me...but over the years not so much. Probably because my kids do a great job of spoiling me throughout the year - my tank is full. It's overflowing after Mother's Day.
We planned a laid back day. We went to chapel. I chose to grill at home rather than fight the crowds in town. We puttered around. Kids called, texted, emailed....
We re-potted a plant
Yes, there were gifts. Michael and the kids spoiled me this year. I had flowers from Michael, roses from the kids and carnations from the Chapel. I also got a really cool hummingbird feeder...Michael made the nectar for it. I'm really excited to have something besides snakes and pigeons in the yard.

The kids went together and got me a gel nail starter kit. It will save significant spending money if I learn to do this at home. This is NOT a mother's day gift. Michael decided to plant watermelon in a bag.....
He also made two of these containers....and I'm happy. I've spent too many months trying to decide what to do about container gardening.
Living all of life before the face of God...
