a happy mother's day

{my gift to my mother--home grown roses and patchwork towels}
We had a very sweet and happy mother's day here. I have grown to love this day of simple pleasures and family time. Today I was served breakfast in bed (made by my little ones, under the direction of Faith), released ladybugs into the garden, went out to lunch, visited with family, walked through the demonstration garden, watched Little Travelers Germany, and talked to my oldest on the phone. It was exactly my kind of mother's day. I especially love having a holiday to reflect upon my motherhood and to feel so happy about they way all my children are growing and changing.

Yes, what a great day to reflect. We are so busy being Mama's that sometimes we forget how it all started. Happy Mother's Day.
