Yesterday was Mother’s Day and I hope all the mothers out there had a great day.
For me it was a little difficult, being the first Mother’s Day without my Mom.
My lovely children made me breakfast; bagels, lox, cream cheese, and capers, served up with coffee and orange juice. It was superb. Then I got the greatest gift. It is a pretend news article from Annabella’s school, complete with a portrait of me, pictured below.
In it my girl describes me as: brave, beautiful, gifted, loving, kind, sweet, nice, and honest.
Wow. That’s a lot to live up to.
Then she goes on to write the following:
I love my mom because she encourages me to be the bet I can be. She helps my troubles. She never deceives us into not appropriate things. She gives me a life supply of love and hope. She is as pretty as a rainbow. She gave me my voice and my eyes. She heals my wounds and weariness. She is the twinkle in my eye, she is the star in the sky. She gives me great books and food. She inspires me.
Needless to say, I cried. My cup runneth over. How lucky am I?
