Mother's Day

I know this is a bit late, but I've been busy with awards and such. :o) Beth and Ben surprised me this year with a very thoughtful gift. They took a bunch of pictures and made a collage for me and had it framed. Beth, Ben, Neal, and my Mom wrote special messages on the right side of the pictures. It was really nice and, of course, made me cry!

From Neal I received a new shower caddy. It was a much needed purchase...one of those things you keep saying you need, but never seem to get around to buying. It's stainless steel, so it should never rust. Yaah! He also gave me an early birthday present...a salad spinner. I guess he got tired of me holding wet spinach in my hands and spinning around really fast flinging water over everything! Go figure!??

Here's a picture of my pictures! Hope you can get an idea of how wonderful it is!



Here's what it says on the side (from top to bottom):

Mommy,
I love you so much! I'm so glad you're my mother. I just love spending Mother-Daughter time with you. Happy Mother's Day!
Love,
Beth

Mommy,
You are the best mommy in the world! I Love you
love,
Ben xoxoxo

Teresa,
Hope you have the best Mothers day ever.
Love,
Mom

Teresa,
The reason we all look so happy in these pictures is because you are the BEST mommy in the world!
I Love You
Daddy (Daddy is Neal) :o)

Wasn't that sweet?!!! We went to church Sunday morning and then went to Neal's grandfather's house for lunch. We had a big potluck dinner. After church Sunday night we went out with some friends to McDonald's for a snack and conversation. I really had an enjoyable day.
Happy Belated Mother's Day to all of you wonderful mothers out there!

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I bought a stainless shower caddy last Feb. with the same hope. It rusted within weeks. I returned it and bought plastic.

That is supremely sweet!

Ditto perri's comment...the caddy will probably rust...maybe they sell a special one that has a coating or something to protect it? I don't know. We just stick stuff on the ledge/edge of the bathtub...you know, because we like it when all the shampoo or soap keeps flopping down at your feet when you take a shower.

Jeremiah 29:11

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
