The weekend’s almost here. I’m Robin with Front Door Friday. Have you ever left a May Day basket? It’s a random act of kindness the world needs today. Let’s bring it back.

 

Start making a list of the people you want to bless because today we’re making three inexpensive May Day baskets. When making your list for the people that you want to give a May Day basket to, don’t forget about your favorite teacher.

 

My favorite teacher was Mrs. Hosley because she was my kids’ kindergarten teacher and she made it so easy, well, mostly easy to let them go that first day. There were some tears but she made it wonderful for the kids and for me. So, Mrs.Hosley, thank you.

 

We can’t forget about the nearest and dearest to us when we’re making our May Day baskets. This one is for my daughter, Tess. Happy May Day, Tess. I love you.

 

When I was designing this basket with all the sweet treats inside, it made me think of my neighbor, Bonnie. She is so sweet. She’s always doing something for me. Happy May Day, Bonnie.

 

One of the most important people in my life that had the most influence on my life is my mother. One of the things she shared with me was her love for gardening. Here’s to you, Ma. I love you.

 

Leaving a May Day basket may seem old fashioned but it’s a simple way to celebrate spring and friendship.

 

That’s it for this week’s Front Door Friday. I encourage you to step out and try some front door decorating this weekend. To learn more, check out the Country Door blog. And I’ll see you next Friday. Happy decorating and God bless.
