Violets are blue.
I'm happy I have a mom
As super as you."
This is the poem that appeared in the homemade card my five year old gave me for Mother's Day yesterday. Isn't it sweet?
I love Mother's Day, both memories of what I used to do for my mother when I was growing up, and the things my husband and children now do for me. It's fun to watch a holiday like Mother's Day come full circle so that the daughter is now the mother.
So now I'm curious about the rest of you. Does anyone have a great Mother's Day tradition to share? A unique surprise you got one year? I'd love to trade some stories.
For us, every year our church does a Mother's Day potluck where the men have to make the food, set up for potluck, and clean up the kitchen afterwards. It's a fun day and an especially nice change of pace for me (since I'm usually in charge of running the potlucks and cleaning up).
How about the rest of you?
