Happy Mother's Day Everybody!
We had a very delicious, wonderful surprise today. My brother, sister-in-law and nephew, Cody sent us this gorgeous fruit bouquet. It came just before lunch so we really made a meal of it. My mother and I had no qualms about scarfing up the chocolate covered strawberries in one sitting. Shame on us but it was worth all the calories.
Thank you, Dennis, Nancy and Cody!
We gave Mom the azaleas to remind her of our trip to the Pacific Northwest. She's still in awe of all the incredible flowers and gardens we saw everywhere. Tomorrow my brother's family will be coming to celebrate the day with us. Then we'll take my mom for an After Mother's Day meal out on Monday.
I almost let Mother's Day get by without a to-do but my brother and sister-in-law awakened me to realize that we needed to spend some time to appreciate and recognize how lucky we are to have each other.
Happy Mother's Day to all of you out there! Have a glorious day together!
