Best way to spend Mother's Day

I have enjoyed getting ready this year for Mother's Day. Seems like we've been working on it for awhile. Had to collect the rocks (long walk down to the river-took most of the morning), had to wash the rocks,

then paint them. Wait for paint to dry and then paint again. I had so much fun watching them paint their rocks. It's a little hard for me sometimes to "let them at it". I tend to think it needs to be perfect and a certain way. But I reprogrammed myself and just let them have fun. It is the best way really, that I can think of, to celebrate Mother's Day. Just being together and celebrating that God has given me four WONDERFUL children to bless my life.
Here's how I am choosing to (hopefully) bless my mothers. One is for my Mom, and the other for my Mother-in-law. They both love their garden, so these are for there gardens, and the kids painted some rocks for them to put in there too.

Hope you all have a blessed Mother's Day!!
