It's Mother's Day--- My first Mother's Day without my kids. A funny feeling. I turned down three dinner invitations... not out of melancholy moods... just because I wanted to have a day to reflect on all the Mothers' Days in the past.
I had kicked around going to Appleton for the day, but this is truly one of my favorite holidays teaching Sunday School. We plant flowers for our moms in terracotta pots-- trying to get more dirt in the pots than ourselves. We discuss in great detail the wonderful things about our mothers and why they are such a gift to each of us. This year's comments ranged from-'She makes me macaroni and cheese' to ' she reaches for things I can't get to..." I wouldn't want to miss it.
