Mother’s Day

This Mother’s Day I:

::Woke up to a wonderful breakfast of white chocolate and blueberry scones, decorated with pink sprinkles, already made and hot from the oven.

::Had very sweet and thoughtful gifts presented to me. Beatrice actually woke Tom up at 6am saying, “It’s mother’s day! Let’s go make our presents!”

::Received the especially valuable and precious gift of time spent together on a family hike, something that has been in very short supply around here while Tom works hard at getting his business off the ground.

::Was surprised by Bea shouting out to me, “Mama, I found a snake!” while we were hiking. Turns out it was actually a Northern Alligator Lizard and not a Common Garter Snake, but still. I don’t think we’ve ever spotted a reptile on one of our hikes before. He was tucked way down in a crevice between two sun-warmed rocks and just poked his head out to watch us as we watched him. Then he turned himself around and disappeared down the hole into his nest.

::Chatted with my own mom over Skype.

::Had dinner cooked for me and the dishes washed afterwards too.

::Felt grateful for being so very blessed.

How did you celebrate Mother’s Day?
