(Missing one child from far away...)
It's funny how the day started out as such a humble celebration, it was a way to honor and connect mother's who sons had fallen in the Civil War and later as a way to promote peace. It's unfortunate that the holiday became so overly commercialized. I do appreciate the simple things my children do for me. I 'm happy with a meal together and several hand made cards. Today we went for a walk, out for lunch, and a visit with my own mother. It was a good day. A simple day.
I also made chocolate chip cookie bars for school and folded laundry so it wasn't like I chilled the whole day. It might be nice to pampered all day. Right now BB is the important event at my house as I write and plan for my day tomorrow.
How ever you spent the day I hope it was relaxing and the focus was more on a shared experience than "stuff".
