Happy Mother's Day/4 Things
Happy Mother's Day!
I am not yet a mother but imagine that it isn't an easy journey. Most things worth doing aren't. I've been thinking a lot about my mom today. And for all the gifts she's given me. There are more than I could mention, but a few that came to mind...
-Faith. Faith in God and in myself.
-A love of reading. We were always visiting the library and bookstores.
-A love of color. Red is our favorite!
-A love of beauty. She'd make my dad pull over and pull wildflowers to plant in our front yard.
-Sewing. And crafting. And making stuff. Which has shaped my life in ways I didn't think were possible.
So on this Mother's Day, I am so thankful.
And now on to this week's 4 things:
-Here in MN, they say the state bird is the mosquito! Lots and lots of bugs in the summer. Instead of drenching myself in DEET, I might give this all natural bug spray a shot.
-I feel like I've fallen into a rut with handmade gifts. Here's a new idea: snappy manicure wallet. Would also be a great scrap buster!
-With spring finally reaching the upper Midwest, I can't help but think about picnics!
-And on that picnic, how about serving the Best Snickerdoodles Ever!
