I hope all you mothers had a wonderful Mother’s Day with your children and mothers! My kids were super excited to wake up early and give me the gifts that our neighbor helped them make: little clay magnets
And they each painted a terra cotta pot and planted a flower.
Then, at church, their teacher had all the kids make paper flower bouquets for their moms.
Mine are now proudly hanging the sewing room :).
After church, hubby took us all out for lunch and then to JoAnn’s where he bought me a new sewing machine :D. Mine quit working about a month ago, and since there are no Singer authorized repair shops in my state, our only real option was replacement (which accomplishes one of my May goals). The no-waste side of me hates that it came to that, but on the other hand, it was only $100 and lasted through pretty heavy use for over 4 years. I’ll donate it to someone who can fix it if I’m amble to find such a person.
Anyway, here’s the new one:
The excitement of my kids and hubby in blessing me in such huge ways was worth way more than the things themselves. They (my family) are truly the best things in my life…
…even when they (*ahem* Small Fry *ahem*) aren’t totally happy.
