I had a truly wonderful Mother’s Day, and it lasted all weekend. It was soooooo wonderful to have all three of my chicks in the nest. I’ve said it before- nothing makes me feel more at peace than to be able to hear each of them breathing as they sleep. They gave me a wonderful gift- a stand mixer!!! Yay!!! I’ve been using a 20 year old hand mixer for all these years, and am oh so happy that my youngest paid such close attention when I showed her how I sign up for every contest I can find to win a stand mixer. More importantly, they each wrote me a letter which they know is what I always tell them I want for Mother’s Day.
It was wonderful too because I got to spend part of it with my own mother and my aunt, and with my sister’s family. I feel very very blessed tonight.
I don’t know that I have ever heard about the origin of Mother’s Day but in reading about it tonight I stumbled upon this video. Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mothers around the world.
