Today I'm thankful for little ones. They are such a bright spot in the Sunday School service.
They keep themselves entertained in the funniest ways . . .
and even the older ones join in the fun.
Mother's Day always reminds me of flowers . . .
Irises blooming . . .
in all kinds of different colors . . .
and all in one little group.
I've heard that in time, they will all take on one color . . . so I may have to transplant the few yellow, and purple and white one's, so they don't take over the dominant purple color.
I got this little beauty for my own mom. A hanging Begonia. I loved the bright oranges and reds of this mix and I know mom will enjoy it too.
For my own Mother's Day, I received cards from Dave and each of the kids, along with some chocolates. (They know me so well!) My mom also got me some Vanilla Marigolds. It looks like, as soon as the rains stop, I'll be out planting some flowers!
My day was spent doing laundry and dishes and I tried to squeeze in a nap, but it just wasn't meant to be. I'm going to have to start locking my doors and unplugging the phones if I want any semblance of peace. I'm glad that everyone feels like they can make themselves at home here . . . but sometimes it really cramps my style.
