Well, this past weekend, my sisters and their families were home, so we had planned on a Ladies only party to celebrate mom. Our friend Barbechan Korver catered the event and she did an AMAZING job! She made a braided bread stuffed with roasted beef, onions, green peppers, mushrooms and cheddar cheese, veggie pizza ( a family fave), and a gorgeous fruit arrangement! My aunt Jane made the cakes and a fabulous coffee drink! Click here to get the recipe! Thank you to my sister-in-law Jodi for giving me that recipe.
The most amazing part of the night was when my Grandma read aloud the story of my mother's birth. My Grandma can paint pictures with her words and she read it with such poignancy!
Then several of us read aloud letters that we had written, our words of love and affection, our favorite memories and so on. There was much laughter and mom felt so loved.
My mom does so much for me that I delighted in helping create a night that honored my mom so much.
The food was a hit!
Mom has such fun friends. They all have loved us girls for as long as we can remember. They have logged plenty of hours praying for us through our different crises as they are Mom's prayer warriors!
Mom with her daughters and granddaughters!
Thank you God for a wonderful night!
