What a wonderful Mother’s Day! What would’ve made it perfect is of course having my Papa here.
I love that my mom came to visit us for 10 days, but she is here because my dad died last August, and that is hard.
It’s my mom’s first Mother’s Day without my Dad, without three flower bouquets he would always buy her — the big one from him and two little ones “from” us kids.
He was always so thoughtful that way. He’d buy them the day before and “hide” them in the boiler room, so that he would have them in the morning ready for Mother’s Day.
The weather has been amazing since my mother came two days ago. So after breakfast we headed out to our annual trip to Muscoot Farm down the street. It’s sheep shearing day every Mother’s Day. Here is our last year’s visit.
While my mom and L are napping, I’m eating jelly beans and writing this, and later we will see the whole Bleasdale Clan at Don’s mother’s house. The kids will run around, we’ll have some yummy food, and sit together to talk about the latest happenings.
How are you celebrating Mother’s Day?
