Hi Debra Clopton here--I had a wonderful, if not odd Mothers Day. I recently had a huge tree fall down which needed to be chopped up and removed it was a huge job. It just happened that the only time we had to do it was on Mothers Day...so yesterday my two sons and and a friend pulled out the chain saws and went to work. It was hot work but we had fun doing it. We visited as we worked and laughed alot. All in all I will remember this day for many years to come because we created a memory. When my kids were little we would do things just to create memories...this wasn't making cookies but it still worked! During the midst of all of this chopping and burning I also got to shoot a shotgun for the first time. My sons decided it was time mom knew how to use a gun so they pulled one out and we took a few moments to do this. The boys enjoyed instructing me--and laughing at my form :) I finally shot the tree stump on the 3rd try! I'm afraid I will never be good with one of those things but I'm not to worried about it. Still it was another great memory. I hope all of you had a great day yesterday and that you made some memories of your own.
