I got to spend Mother’s Day weekend with my Mom! It’s been quite a few years since we were together for Mother’s Day, and it was so nice to have my parents stay with us over the weekend.
After church I planned a summery brunch (with, as I learned the hard way, too many things that needed to be done at the same time). Everything turned out ok, it just took a lot longer than I’d planned. Blogging about time management, hospitality and cooking does not make you an expert on the topic! 🙂
Here was my menu:
- My Favorite Breakfast Casserole
- Cinnamon Bun Scones (made these ahead)
- Kentucky Hot Brown Inspired Pin Wheels (these took about 3x’s as long to cook – might have been a mistake on my end – but they turned out delicious!)
- Fresh Fruit
- Spring Peach Salad
- Mini Cheesecake Bites (used these from the store!)
A word of encouragement if your Mother’s Day wasn’t picture perfect (nobody’s is!). If you’re longing to have a child, if you have a strained relationship with your Mom or your child, if your Mom is already in heaven, if your family didn’t celebrate you the way you hoped…if you find yourself in a situation today that you never planned or wanted – I want to leave you with this quote from my pastor’s message yesterday.
Rest in God’s sovereignty – God is writing a story that you can not see.
Just as this paper isn’t perfect – you can see where I messed up, erased and started over on one of the words – nobody has a perfect life. There’s hope for us all! And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son. (Romans 8:28-29)
I hope you had a lovely weekend! ❤
