Mother's Day surprise

Our grown kids surprised me this Mother's Day with a wonderful gift. When our children were young, they had made some tiny decoupaged pictures. These had been in a box, and I recently found them, commenting to our daughter Jan that it would be fun to find a way to display them again. Then, with other things on my mind (like blogging - LOL) I forgot all about them, not realizing that they had found their way into Jan's purse.
Our grandaughter, Bethany, who is a professional framer, mounted them. What a surprise when I opened my early Mother's Day gift from our children, to find this beautifully framed picture of their art work from thirty-five years ago! It is now hanging proudly in our house bringing back some wonderful memories. Thanks to our three great kids and their spouses for this very thoughtful gift!

I'm so glad you liked it. Bethany commented on how each of our personalities were apparent even at that age. Bethany does such good work too!
