Post-Mothers Day ….reflections of a great day!

by MamaJil on May 14, 2012

Today I found myself reflecting on Mothers Day…..I really had such a nice day yesterday!

It was so nice to go to church together and then come home and prepare the lunch as a family.

It was sweet to get all the homemade cards and to be hugged and loved on by all of my children.  To sit down and have lunch together was an added joy!  The fact that we still have the opportunity to enjoy it with my parents and my mother in law was a blessing and a treasure!


I must say that I love big Sunday dinners the food always seems to taste extra good and special! Our Mother’s Day menu was filled with my favorites! Ham, dressing, collard greens, Squash, cabbage, creamed new potatoes,  fresh cranberry sauce, sausage and rice, stuffing muffins, tea and for dessert chocolate cake, fudge brownies and cookie cake served of course with coffee, all on my favorite china.


It was a great time of visiting and hanging out, and as if that were not enough my middlers and my littles surprised me with the sweetest gift…..a video they made special for me on Mothers Day.  The video was so cute and funny I just had to share it, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
