It is a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Being mother's day, it has been a lazy day for me. Yesterday we celebrated my hubby's birthday and he snuck in a gift for me as well. A new digital camera! What a lovely Mother's Day gift, and totally unexpected! Now to learn all the bells and whistles. My daughter owns the same camera and claims it is easy. We'll see.
Today Husband, Daughter, my sister and I took my Mom out to lunch at her favorite restaurant. We had a lovely time, and as a treat for us "moms" our waitress ended our meal by bringing the most scrumptious chocolate dipped strawberry to us with wishes from the staff. We thought that a most thoughtful gesture, until we took our first bite! Thoughtful is hardly the word, nor does scrumptious fully describe the confection. As a deep sigh escaped I couldn't help but say "I have three children!" hoping for extra special consideration. My sister almost lost her strawberry she laughed so hard! We do believe the strawberries were soaked in Grand Mariner... oh so delightful!
I hope all the mom's that have become a part of my life have enjoyed a very special day.
God Bless us all.
