Hey all you lovely people out there!
Who do you go to when you feel sick, lonely, scared, anxious, excited, gloomy, worn-out, joyful, and about a million bajillion (that’s a word, look it up–wait, don’t) other emotions that I can’t think of right now??? Why, your mom of course! Mom’s are the bomb! My mom is the perfect mom. She if funny, she is crafty, she’s sweet, she loves God most of all and loves my dad unfailingly. She is an author, a poet, a teacher, a singer/songwriter, an artist, a wonderful cook, a seamstress (remember the sweat shop?), and she apparently is a bird watcher… (rolls the eyes)
She is a wonderful wife of 47 years, a devoted daughter to my sweet grandmother (who is another amazing woman!!), a caring sister, and again a PERFECT MOTHER!
Thank you Mom for all that you do to brighten the day of anyone you meet. You are a blessing to me and many others. I love you forever, like you for always, as long as I’m living my mother you’ll be.
Okay, enough of this, I’m going to short out my laptop with the tears that i’m drowning in right now…
I, on the other hand, am not the perfect mom. HA I can say this because I am leaving town tomorrow to have a girls weekend at the beach with a bunch of other moms. (It has been a long month with lots of sickness and dr. visits. So I’m hittin’ the road Jack. Don’t judge me…)So our precious families are going to have a mom-less Mother’s Day. This got me thinking… what kinds of crafts could dads pull off without too much stress and pain? Now, Mr. Creativity can hang with me on some artsy stuff, but he runs the other way when it comes to crafts. He is just too macho for a glue gun. uh-huh. So, here is a round-up of some easy breezy things that the kids can make and dads can chalk up one more brownie point. :) Just click on the links below the picture and enjoy!
6. Wrist Soiree (Yes, I realize this isn’t a craft. But dads can MAKE a decision as to which bracelet would be pretty. Brownie points would be earned.)
For all the mothers out there, here is an Irish blessing for you as you enjoy YOUR special day:
May your day be touched by a bit of Irish luck, brightened by a song in your heart, and warmed by the smiles of the people you love.
