    So what did all the moms get for Mother's Day?

    I got to spend time with my children. We picked up a pizza for lunch and my son gave me a funny card and a poster of Barack Obama saying, "YES WE CAN!!!"

    That was kind of funny, considering that I voted for John McCain and am a dyed-in-the-wool Republican.

    My son hung the poster over Mr. Nel's and my bed. I'm pretty sure he didn't think of the implications and subtle innuendos when he hung it there. Mr. Nel will get a shock when he sees it. It's too much like having a cheering section in the bedroom: "RA! RA! YES YOU CAN!"

    You know, to stimulate the economy.

    I bought my mother a bar of soap, a small tin of hand lotion, and a tube of chapstick. All of them chocolate-scented.
    They came gift-wrapped in a little shiney wrapper tied with a red silk ribbon, and it had a complimentary little wooden soap dish in it.
    I bought it at the local Arts market, from a local couple who own make the stuff themselves (they own their own buisiness).
    I also bought her a Creme' Bruele-scented candle from another local man at the Arts market (he makes all the candles he sells).
    Then after I gave them too her, I treated her to dinner at her favorite local seafood resatraunt. She had a glass of champagine with dinner, so I drove us to church.
    I forgot to get her a card though.

    (Hmm.. 5:00 AM.
    I'm going to bed.
    'Night. )

    I totally agree with Plumes...I love when my kiddos make me stuff...i can't wait to see what my baby girl brings home from daycare this year! As for my mom I might get her a nice gift or maybe just give her some money...I remember one year I found one of those mother/daughter books with different quotes from mom...then I stuck a post it or paper on a few cute sayings and put a memory of my mom and I on the paper. She loved the book and it made her cry...I still see her reading it from time to time. So yeah, you don't need alot of money or flowers...it's the little things that make moms happy!

    Carrots, Eggs & Coffee

    <a href="http://s486.photobucket.com/albums/rr226/littlebird894_photos/?action=view&current=untitled-21.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i486.photobucket.com/albums/rr226/littlebird894_photos/untitled-21.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>
    A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem was solved, a new one arose.

    Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil. In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the third she placed ground coffee beans. She let them sit and boil; without saying a word.

    In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl. Turning to her daughter, she asked, "Tell me what you see."

    "Carrots, eggs, and coffee," she replied.

    Her mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they were soft. The mother then asked the daughter to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard boiled egg.

    Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip the coffee. The daughter smiled as she tasted its rich aroma. The daughter then asked, "What does it mean, mother?"

    Her mother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity: boiling water. Each reacted differently. The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting. However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak. The egg had been fragile. It's thin outer shell had protected it's liquid interior, but after sitting through the boiling water, its inside become hardened. The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water.

    "Which are you?" she asked her daughter. "When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean?"

    Think of this: Which am I? Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity, do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength?

    Am I the egg that starts with a malleble heart, but changes with the heat? Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a break up, a financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and stiff? Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff and hardened heart?

    Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings pain. When the water gets hot, it releases the fragrance and flavor. If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you. When the hour is the darkest and trials are their greatest do you elevate yourself to another level? How do you handle adversity?

    Are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean?

    May you have enough happiness to make to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human and enogh hope to make you happy.

    My heartfelt condolences for all of you that no longer have your Mothers.


    I'm fortunate and very thankful to have my mother still with us, she's in her 80s and still is active with her gardening and sewing. Our family knows that we are lucky that she is still with us and we cherish all the things she sews for our families. I'm beading her a barrette with 'Mom' on it and strawberries, also the strawberry flowers. I'm still working on it and I know I'll have it done before her big day.

    As a mom i really never need money spent, just being with them, my kids are little so I get the hand made things and then their daddy and them do take me to BBQ but I hold their lil gifts closer to my heart. So Id say to any body whos low on $$ any thing for mom would be nice and may take little to no money.
