I was a little bit sad over the weekend. A family member didn’t think about the fact that it was Mother’s Day and decided to take a road trip, taking along Joy as a companion. I didn’t want to seem persnickety, so I didn’t say anything as they discussed destinations. They decided on the beach. They packed quickly and took off.
Though part of the family was gone, Mother’s Day was still such a blessing.
After visiting a new church, my sweet James bought me lunch. I chose to go to Moe’s. We dined on the patio outside, listening to great music and enjoying the sun and the breeze. Glory and Ryan joined us, so we had a very nice afternoon.
My sweet Glory bought me some more bracelets. I’ve really been enjoying my stack of stretchy beaded bands in various colors, but couldn’t find any black beaded bracelets. She picked up a stack for me and they completed my collection.
This photo is from my trip to St. Augustine and shows some of the fun, summer colored bracelets that I recently acquired. With Glory’s gift, I now have bracelets to wear with any color outfit.
And sweet Joy bought me a great coffee cup. It has a neat little spoon that rests inside the handle. She liked it because it was different!
I was also given a really fun, wide-brimmed, bejewled straw hat that will be perfect for summer outings when the sun is at it’s strongest. It’s a soft brown that will go with a lot of my clothes.
All in all, it was a beautiful day. I’m so thankful to be a mom and enjoy all the joys that come with that responsibility.
How was your Mother’s day?
