I must beg forgiveness for the delay in which I have posted this years Mothers Day Blog, no excuses.
This year Mom wanted to have a quiet day at home and we delivered. The day began with a nice breakfast for Mom of a banana and peanut butter and she was off, before the kids were up, for a training ride for the MS-150. The day was great and sunny and Tracy was able to get in two hours on her bike. The bike ride was followed by a yummy lunch and a walk with Nikki. The kids, especially Kay, had created some very heart felt and personal Mothers Day gifts and Kay could not wait for dinner & gift opening. Mom just HAD to open one of the masterpieces. It contained a hand-made clay pot with some type of greenery in it (not real sure what). It almost looks like she grabbed a couple of stray dandelion leaves and covered them in dirt. However the card she created is a precious:
Mom you are sweet as a rose. You are no ordnery Mom. You are a loving caring Mom that loves me. You are not a plain mom you are a charming mom. I love you for who you are no one can change that. No one can love you as much as I do.
The morning ride over Mom returned home to a nice lunch and then headed out with Nikki for a walk. We all got dinner ready and when she returned home Jimmy surprised her with an afternoon pedicure appointment. Jimmy created a beautiful gift bag and also gave Mom a cup of tea along with a gift card for one free yard mowing. He did create a tea cup out of art paper with beautiful flowers on one side and this saying on the other:
A cup of tea to say thank you
For all the things you've done,
And wishes that the day will bring
You happiness and fun.
Happy Mother's Day!
Mexican fiesta was the dinner plan as it is one of Mom's favorite meals. Complete with homemade Kay style guacamole and black beans. Bill presented Mom with the a special book, The Lonely Planet Netherlands, as we are heading there this summer for a wedding, and he created a beautiful card with his smiling face in the middle of a sunflower along with,
I love you Mom
The kids talked with the Grandam's to wish them Happy Mother's Day and Tracy and I did to. It was great to connect with them and let them know we love them and we are blessed by them.
The kids and I are also blessed with a Mom/wife, that spends a great deal of energy giving us a special life and a happy home. Tracy is a hard working, dedicated, loving, thoughtful, charming and no ordnery Mom. We love you, we bless you and were glad you are are MOM.
