I hope you all enjoyed your Mother’s Day! We had fantastic weather here so after church, we headed up to Tower Hill Botanic Garden for a picnic. The place was packed and a ton of new flowers were blooming. We dined on egg salad wraps, watermelon, yogurt, and chocolate chip cookies. Manny and Sister Girl enjoyed having their shoes off in the cushy grass, not at all like our backyard! Of course, I forgot my camera but we snapped these two pics with my cell phone.
I’ll leave you with a quote from Sally Clarkson, author of “The Mission of Motherhood”. For me, this really speaks to my heart. Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms and moms-to-be!
“And the fundamental mission of motherhood now is the same as it always was: to nurture, protect, and instruct children, to create a home environment that enables them to learn and grow, to help them develop a heart for God and His purposes, and send them out into the world prepared to live both fully and meaningfully.”
