Mothers Day

I couldn't have asked for a better Mother's Day.

All of my children were home, which always makes me feel the world is finally orbiting as it should.

I didn't have any trouble waking up at 3:30 to put the turkey in the oven.

Dinner, with all of us plus Paul's mom plus a friend of Matt's, came together without me coming apart, always something to celebrate, and afterwards I was shooed into the living room while the dishes magically got done.

Jenny gave me a small pillow for when I travel, that she made herself.

Emily gave me a cool plate and cup set featuring a large rooster that just "goes" with my kitchen.

Amy, Steven, and Ben gave me a new planter that looks like an oversized teapot and is just cute.

Matt's gift to me is shopping on ebay for a new-used camera, since I really need one and kept putting it off because I dreaded the shopping thereof.

And Paul gave me a letter with lots of nice words in it.

I felt very blessed.

Quote of the Day I:
". . . warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men."
--the Bible verse I quoted when Paul, preparing for a sermon, asked me what verses tell me how to be a mom

Quote of the Day II:
"You missed a verse--'Thou shalt not kill.'"
--a mysterious note that was dropped over my shoulder during the sermon


  1. I think I would like your church, with the sense of humor these QOTDs show!

  2. I would have loved to have been sitting near you to watch your reaction with QOTD ll was dropped over your shoulder..


  3. Love the QsOTD!! Too funny!
