Happy Mother's Day!

 I can't think of anything harder and yet more rewarding than being a mom. My kids have grown and moved out of our home, but they still are in and out the door on a regular basis.
 We lived in a rural setting most of their growing up years but didn't really embrace this lifestyle until they were gone. I think they were a little surprised when our garden started getting bigger and small livestock started appearing! But they have been very supportive, even helpful.
 Today, my Mother's Day gifts reflect that. I got a new rabbit nesting box for the mama rabbit. I had been worried about finding one in time but my sons came to the rescue!

My kids know that daisies are my absolute favorite flowers. I have tried for years to get them to grow here but have never had any luck. So today I got a huge bouquet of daisies.
beautiful bouquet!

 And I got a new bread knife-maybe they're hoping this one will slice straighter! (We will blame the crooked slices on the knife, not the mom!) On top of all that, they took me out to a wonderful lunch!
 God has truly given me a great bunch of kids!
