Mother's Day

Mother's Day is coming to a close here on the south coast of California and the winds are kicking up! I had a nice day... but check out how it started!

By 10:00am I had showered, done the grocery shopping, fed and walked the dog, made breakfast for my parents (my mom made it for my daughter so it all evened out!), written a book review (Perfect Chemistry), picked up the house, and done half the laundry. Happy Mother's Day! :-)

The rest of the day seemed a bit better. My mom, daughter and I went clothes shopping with no real agenda and no time fram. I found a lovely white linen sundress so was very happy. Now I'm cooking the pasta for dinner (while I write the post, talk about multi-tasking).

The best part of the day was the gift my daughter gave me: a book/poem that she wrote for me. Not only was I touched by the ideas in the poem, but she has gotten really good! She is in 4th grade and her school has a poet-in-residence for 6 weeks who does wonders with the kids. Here's some of the lines from my poem...
You keep secrets like a bubble floating around, keeping quiet until finally reaching me and popping

You are sweet like a jar of honey, there is enough goodness for everyone

So cute! It means so much more when they make things themselves. I hope you had a fantastic mothers day.

Thanks everyone! I agree that the homemade are so much better than a store bought gift. Especially since I am not really into Mother's Day. I'd rather we connect and respect each other every day
