Found this while blog surfing...Kyran Pittman's Mother's Day video-the message is perfect.
My Mother's Day started with breakfast in bed made by Groovy Girl. She had a banana, a piece of toast from homemade bread, a glass of real grape juice and a package of good chocolates (oh, yes!) on a tray. After we snuggled and ate together we got dolled up for church. At church we celebrated Teenage Boy's (and 6 other youth's) confirmation. He made it through both his readings and the passage he had to have memorized. He did great and the whole ceremony was very personal.
Afterwards we had a Mexican lunch in a local park. It was wonderful to have the sun shining so brightly. The wind was whipping but the sun was warm. We also stopped by a garden shop to pick up some plants for our huge pots at the front of the house. Spring is really here!
The best part of the day happened while my husband and I were ripping out carpet (a huge undertaking for Spring), when Teenage Boy and Groovy Girl walked to his school to play basketball, leaving us a little quiet time to work and talk on our own. Our kids are always around (a positive and a negative) and I miss that intimate time of conversing with him and we made good use of the time. We (even) got a huge strip of carpet pulled up from the front entrance through the living room. When the kids got home we shared some chocolate cake I made yesterday for Teenage Boy's big day.
I hope everyone's day was peaceful and relaxing.
