Happy Mother’s Day to Mothers, Mothers-To-Be and Mothers At Heart. You are the inspiration to your sons and daughters. Each of you is a beautiful rose. Thank you for all the sacrifices you have made, the dreams you have given to us, the love that continues unending.
My beautiful mother lives on in the hearts of all who knew her. She was, is and shall always be a beautiful women filled with a love for life. Imagination was one of her greatest gifts – creative, inspiring and knowing no limits. We had rainy day picnics in the living room, with floor lamps as trees and camp outs under the kitchen table. No camp out could be complete without a Marshmallow roast over the kitchen stove. She learned to sew and entered her creations in the PTA fashion show competition with her daughters as models. She inspired her daughters to reach for the stars, and that there was nothing we could not do. Life was an adventure. Not a day goes by that I don’t feel her presence nearby.
This year for Mother’s Day, we are getting together for a barbecue and swim at my sister’s beautiful home. We are keeping Mother’s Day very simple – it’s more about spending time together as a family. So I won’t be planning elaborate menus. I will be whipping up a wonderful Trifle Dessert of Strawberries and Oranges. (Look for the recipe soon).
In the meantime, I hope you visit prior postings for Mother’s Day as a source of inspiration.
