A happy day to all the other mothers out there! Kind of nice to have a day set aside for the people in our life to think about mom - not that I am neglected, but at times I think that I am just a means to an end. Maid to wash and clean-up, taxi driver to events, nurse to mend the bumps, cook to make their meals, etc. So I appreciate when they take the time to remember that there is an actual person behind the role of mother - even if it is kind of a Halmark Holiday.
My other grandma is a baker, so she got a kitchen apron (but silly me I forgot to take pictures of it)! I think I got those gene's - when the house is crazy, upside down messy and I do not know where to start, I wander into the kitchen. First, I bake some bread, make a batch of cookies, start supper - then I wonder what I should clean!
Most of all today I feel lucky that I could give gifts to both of my grandmas. I love that my kids will have memories of my grandparents (all 4 are still kicking!), as these people are a huge part of who I am. I just wish that we did not live so far away, perhaps we cherish the moments even more because we are separated by miles.
Have a lovely Mothers' Day!
