Mothers, Grandmothers, and Aunts

Today was our church's Mother's Day luncheon. It was exceptional, as always. The theme was "The measure of a woman." Our favors were measuring tapes (the kind for garments) and measuring spoons. The gentlemen of the church, sporting measuring tape suspenders did all the waiting on us!

The centerpieces were adorable - large Pyrex dishes filled with foam flowers. The center of each flower was a measuring spoon.

Here is the annual picture of the ladies of my family. This year, my mother-in-law was in warm and sunny Florida, so she did not attend. From left to right: Me, my mom, Gram, Grammy, and Auntie Paula. My aunt told us today that she's expecting her third child! My newest (and last) cousin will be due in December!

My mom and me:

Like my flower? It's my very first blog contest win! I won my friend Hillary's blog contest. I loooove this flower. The center of it is a vintage pin. Please visit her etsy shop to see her other creations!

Happy Mother's Day to all moms out there!

A capable, intelligent, and virtuous woman--who is he who can find her? She is far more precious than jewels and her value is far above rubies or pearls.

Proverbs 31:10
