Happy Mother's Day

I woke up to a smiling little girl holding a balloon and an orchid and my wonderful man holding my favorite food

~ a box of donuts!
(I NEVER buy them...too dangerous!)

What a wonderful morning :)

The almost-teenage-boy woke a bit later and was so very sweet.

Soon we will go for a hike.

Yep, that's what I want to do today.

I had the funniest memory of a Mother's Day morning about 4 years ago...

Firehubby was at work that morning and

I heard the hands of a 7 and 8 year old busily at work in the kitchen.

They were not allowed to use the stove, of course, so I was picturing some delicious toast.

Soon, I hear happy voices and clanking of dishes coming up the stairs...

Breakfast in bed was on the way!

I pretended I was still asleep.

"Mommy, wake up!"

"Happy Mother's Day!"

There they were, with two of the cutest smiling faces, holding a tray out to me.

"We made breakfast-in-bed for you!"

So darling.

I sit up and they place the breakfast on my lap.

Hmmmm, what is that? I asked myself.

It was a VERY special recipe that they had just made up!

Here it is:

Start with a cup of:

Mix in:
Stir in: (cheddar cheese cubes)


They were so proud of their "cooking".

I smiled a big smile as I took my first bite.

"mmmmm, so yummy!"


Oh, the delight in their eyes was so sweet.

They sat on the bed, watching me chew each bite.

"Mmmmmm, this is just so tasty."

I finished every last (ewwww) bite.

"You want so more Mommy?!"

"No thanks. I am sooooo full"

Too cute :)

Happy Mother's Day to all of you mom's out there.

I am remembering all of you mothers who, sadly, only hold your babies

in your hearts and memories, and not in your arms today.

Happy Late Mother's Day!

Love your memory of your creative breakfast! And rather thankful I didn't experience it firsthand :)

And how did I know that you would be sensitive to those moms who are waiting to meet their children? You are a precious soul.
