Mother's Day

For Mother's Day I got:
  • To sleep in with my younger son
  • To wake up by myself and have a cup of tea in a quiet house
  • To play with my photography, no interruptions
  • To watch my son, wearing only a t-shirt and his superhero underwear, bring me his homemade gifts: a beaded bracelet, a beaded necklace, a potted flower, and a card saying "I love you Mom"
  • A little rock from my older son Paris
  • To hug Paris for a very, very, very long time
  • A simple picnic with croissants, fresh strawberries, and a fire
  • Told many times by my husband that he loves me
  • Another hug from Paris
  • A book that I wanted to read
  • To have dinner with my family: mom, dad, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews
  • To give my Mom a present she has wanted for a very, very, very long time: a photo album full of pictures of her family, sons, daughters, grandkids
  • To hug my mom for a very, very, very long time

No diamond rings, no fancy restaurants, no eggs benedict in bed.

Just time, love, a few small things, and a few big moments. Perfect.
