Mother's Day is a day I mostly dread. I'm sorry. It's just a tough day for me, and I know I'm not alone in that. So, imagine my total surprise when Mother's Day turned into a very lovely day for me this year.
First there was the chocolate and pink roses at our church services. (What's not to like about chocolate and roses?)
Then there was a lovely dinner and good time with friends. And by lovely dinner, I mean really YUMMY.

It's been a long time since I've played Yahtzee!

We also ate a considerable amount of chocolate covered strawberries for dessert. These were prepared by the Young Women in our Ward as a camp fundraiser. They were REALLY GOOD. I don't know where they get their strawberries, but these were huge, juicy and quite flavorful.

I was not expecting anything out of the ordinary this Mother's Day, and was very much resigned to soldiering through it... so this very wonderful day came as a delightful and a complete surprise. My thanks to everybody who helped make it so very special. (Judy, Laurel, George, Peggy!)
You guys are the BEST.
