Today is Mother's Day and I have been thinking all week about what Mother's
Day experiences I gave my mother when I was a teenager. I used to make her
breakfast in bed - French Toast with lots of maple syrup. Sometimes I made
fancy coupons that were good for 2 hours of ironing or a week of cleaning
the bathroom. I don't remember what, if anything, my
for her while he was alive, and he died when I was just barely 14.
When I became a mother, my husband always took me out for a nice supper and
the children made me cards or little items at school. I still have most of
them in my Genealogy Treasure
Once they left home and moved away they began a tradition of calling me on
Mother's Day. Sometimes my eldest grandchildren send me a Mother's Day Card
- that's very special to me.
away two years ago but I have a
two daughters-in-law and a former daughter-in-law, all of whom are amazing
mothers to my grandchildren. I wish them the happiest of Mother's Days!
What are your traditions?
