I spoke with my dear mama this morning. I do love her voice. It sounds like a lovely melody. My dad is still in the rehab center, getting strong. She and my dear sister will be with him, watching golf on the telly, this Mother's Day.
As you can see in the photo above, I must tidy the Wendy house. Sam was washing dishes in the sink. We're having a nice warm cookout for dinner. Blue skies for Mother's Day! Nice!
Do you think this squirrel is a mother? She sure goes to great lengths to get sunflower seeds. Time for bird food.
April and Brad have me this feeder. Can you see Mr. Gnome's bird?
Jeff gave me a yellow bird. She glows in the dark.
Can you see Lizzy and Sam's footprints? Butterfly wings!
My dear gnome-giving neighbor brought this snail watering can over yesterday. Did you know that garden snails wear pearls?
My friend Jennifer has chickens and her girls are laying like crazy just now! I'm so glad she shares with me!
I'm making a strawberry, cucumber, and spinach salad to go with our cookout food! I shall run to the grocery and buy more potatoes for my favorite picnic food: potato salad. Yum!
Such a blue-sky day in my neighborhood! Can you see the hills (mountains) in the distance? Soon the leaves on the maple trees will show themselves and we're hoping the cold didn't halt our fruit tree blooms. My peonies are shooting up! Happiness!
I DO love being a mother. My own mother showed me how to do it. I am so proud of our kids and I like their ways. They are smart, they care for others, they pay attention, and they love Jesus.
All women have the gifts to be mothers. I know women who do not have children, but they are full of sweet mothering characteristics and they bless others with love.
