Mother's Day is just 4 days away, and I am left trying to make up my mind once again about my Mom's gift. I am one of those strange women who like acts of service as gifts. For example, several times I have asked that my Mother's Day gift be a big family day of planting the garden. I always throw the catch in that everybody MUST be smiling while working and there can be NO fighting amongst the children while planting in the garden. Our oldest son who hates working in the garden begged me to let him by me a gift instead. NOPE, I wanted his time and energy complete with a smiling face.
I would love to do something like this for my mom. I would love to put her together a basket of flowers. I would love to have her over for a family dinner on Mother's Day. I would even love to give her something that she can't do for herself like moving out furniture and cleaning behind it or taking down the garden area in her backyard. I would love to plant some beautiful flowers in her yard for her. All of these ideas would be things that my mom would enjoy. However I can't just drive 6 hours to Ky. right now so I am left trying to come up with a gift that she will like and that I can afford. Whenever she wants something, she can buy it so my options are a bit limited. I think I will send her some beautiful spring flowers. She loves cut flowers, but she won't splurge to purchase them for herself. I know they don't last long, but they will be a reminder of a daughter who loves her and is thinking of her.
I think the best Mother's Day gift that I have ever put together came last year. I was at our local feed store. They have added a beautiful section of outdoor things. I happened to ring what looked to be a set of wind chimes. The sound was so sweet and they sounded just like church bells. They are called Corinthian Bells and they had a huge price tag. So I called my siblings and asked if we could all go in together for Mother's Day and our mom's birthday gift They agreed and it made a wonderful gift. So if you are looking for a wonderful gift and have some extra money to put to it or extra people to help then check out a set of Corinthian Bells.
grace and peace,
