Sparkler love. Fun memories.
One of those hard hard times…as a person and as a mom. What do you do when you are so vividly reminded that there is horror and evil in the world?
Maybe go out into the garden and collect a few blooms and branches for a kitchen table arrangement. To remind yourself visually that there is still beauty in the world. Maybe stare blankly at your computer screen till your coffee gets cold.
Maybe bake something that the kiddos love so they’ll hang out in the kitchen for awhile after school. Maybe send one more text to Husband to make sure he’s still there.
Definitely say extra prayers.
Happy Mother’s Day! I hope that all my fellow moms out there are being well celebrated, remembered and honoured today. Kudos for everything you have invested in the next generation. One of the most worthwhile things you can do with your life.
And so, here are a few pretty, and yummy, photos to add to your festivities today.
Also I must take this opportunity to extol the virtues of breakfast in bed. This is a twice annual treat for me, on my birthday and on Mother’s Day. In my opinion this is an excellent skill to be developing in your children. It will serve them well in life…and serve you well in the meantime. It’s important to be positive and encouraging. And remember that it’s always the thought that counts.
Here is some of the thoughtfulness I woke up to this morning…
This croissant concoction was posted on Teenaged Daughter’s Pinterest board a few days ago…I should have clued in, but they managed to surprise me. Even the presentation of it was lovely. I am a proud and lucky mom. Good job kiddos.
Enjoy your day, Moms, however you have been celebrated. Tomorrow…onward and upward.
First thing is to shop for your basket’s contents. And spread them out all over the floor.
