No, I didn’t spend Mother’s Day at a spa or at the mall. I spent my guilt-free day enjoying delightful little treats, which I will list here:
Drinking a perfect cup of coffee and breakfasting with an egg-and-bacon biscuit sandwich from Louis’. Opening a card from my husband; checking online to find a Mother’s Day photo collage on Facebook and Starbucks e-card from Gabby. Talking to Gabby and her brother Kurt on the phone today. Calling my mom and visiting my mom-in-law. Going to church and bringing home a rose. Lounging the rest of the day reading Maya Angelou’s new book, “Mom & Me & Mom,” when there was work to be done.
I tucked all of these little pleasures into a regular day. They made today extraordinary and I am grateful.
