A Mother's Day Remembered

My family knows what I like and showered me with these things. Its wonderful to be remembered with love and I wanted to share with you.

I love benches and had been wanting one to go underneath these windows on the front porch. My hubby had a nearby carpenter to make this one for me. You may remember my red bench that's inside. This one is made exactly like it and the wood is as smooth as silk. Both are sure to be family heirlooms.



My daughter loves gardening as much as I do and put together these two beautiful blue and purple plant combinations. One is for me and the other is for my mother. I love them!





My son gave me this red and white hanging basket, which I promptly hung on the shepherd's hook outside the kitchen window. I can look at it often to remember his thoughtfulness.





My sweet little grandson picked out this water wand for his grandma. Isn't he something? He knew exactly what I needed!



My newest co-worker remembered me this Willow Tree Angel. She has recently lost her beloved mother and even though she is too old to be my daughter since she just turned 40, she wanted to remember me and another "older" co-worker. This angel is called "Sunshine". I love the sunflowers in her lap.

Sounds like you had a beautiful Mother's Day. The gifts certainly reflect how much you are loved! Mine was nice, too. We all went out to dinner and all the kids were able to come, which was the best treat of all!

What a wonderful Mothers Day you had. The flowers are beautiful and the bench is especially nice. I have two of the water wands and I love using them. The spray from them is like gentle rain.
