This Sunday is Mother’s Day and traditionally Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. When my Mom was still alive I used to show my appreciation to her with a card, a gift, a bouquet of flowers, or a restaurant brunch.
When our children were little we tried serving my wife breakfast in bed for the first few years but the burnt toast and over cooked eggs proved to be too much of a love gesture for her. So we resorted to the ways listed above to show her how much we appreciated her sacrifice and love.
Now I get to see how my grandchildren show their Mommy how much they appreciate her. You know what I have discovered? No matter how fancy our toasters become, the smell of burnt toast doesn’t seem to change.
Enjoy Your Mother’s Day
