My love language is acts of service. I enjoy a nice gift, but I LOVE when somebody does an act of service for me. This brings me to Mother's Day. Every year I ask for the same Mother's Day gift. My oldest son already is dreading his part. He has a job now, and he would rather spend $$ on me than what I really want. He knows me well enough to know that won't work. So he is preparing himself for the day ahead. My desire is that everybody work in the garden with me, and be HAPPY about it. We will finish planting, and we will set up the drip works to the beds that are already planted. We will weed the strawberries and just get everything in tip top shape in the garden. In the past, I have spotted our two oldest boys doing a rain dance on Mother's Day. If you want to see happy kids, come to my house on Mother's Day if it is raining HARD outside. This happened last year. Truth be told I just like all of us to be together on Mother's Day, and if we can do it in the garden that is just a bonus for me! The one thing I don't want to do on Mother's Day is to go to a restaurant. I like having my men folk grill a nice meal, and I don't even mind chipping in and helping in the kitchen. Some may call me weird, but I would so much rather eat at our own table than at a busy restaurant. How about you? What do you enjoy doing on Mother's Day?
grace and peace,
