Mother's Day weekend was busy but fun and relaxing and held many blessing. We had a "Ladybug, Ladybug Tea" at our church on Saturday. Several women brought their dishes and decorated a table or two however they wanted. Touring the tables before the tea began was fun. I took some pictures of the table I sat at which was designed by my sister Raydine.
The Trillium plates made by American Limoges
Everyone had a different tea cup
Isn't this a lovely pot, we didn't use it though, all it had to do was sit there and look pretty.

The Ladybug on the plate was also made by Raydine and contains a poem inside.
The little fabric flower on the left attached to the brownie has ladybugs on the fabric.
They were also made by my sister.
The food was delicious, if I had been thinking I would have staged it better on my plate
when I served myself.
The whole table setting and atmosphere was lovely.
We had a "Ladybug Ladybug Fashion Show" which made everyone laugh,
which is exactly what we wanted to happen.
Connie blessed us by sharing about the blessings of being a Mother
My Mom has been with the Lord for almost fifteen years now and I still miss her. I will always have the memory of the unconditional love that she gave to each of her eight children.
My Mother-in-law Virginia has always been a great blessing in my life and I am thankful that she was able to attend the tea on Saturday. Here is a picture of her with my daughter Amy.

Sunday was a blessing to me, we had a wonderful church service, with a slide show put together by my son Micah, honoring all of the mothers at church.
The kids all got together and brought dinner
I didn't have to cook!
