Not being a mother myself (unless you count the dogs – which my husband has emphatically told me I may not), this day is still all about my mother for me. I am a little embarrassed to say that I didn’t really appreciate her when I was growing up. I took TONS of stuff for granted. I didn’t even notice my bed was magically made and my clothes picked up off of the floor until I got to college and for some reason my room was a disaster. Ask any of my college friends and they will tell you “disaster” is a gross understatement. But in all seriousness, my mom did everything for me while I was all worried about myself. So I had two full beings living my life and I still had a tough time keeping up. Well, now that it’s mostly all on me, it is clear that I was better for it. But I didn’t really notice, until a year or so ago when I got to thinking about it.
One day I had a million errands to run and as I was getting out of the car for close to the 8th time I rolled my eyes and let out some sort of a groan. I was so tired of getting in and out of the car and driving myself all over all day long! And then it hit me, I’ve always been this crazy busy body person and MY MOM used to have to drive me around like this all the time. If I’m annoyed doing it for myself, how did she do it for ME all of those years without a single complaint? She is a saint and so many of the little things I took for granted I don’t anymore. And I owe her a great big thank you! I actually owe her an infinite number of thank you’s so Mothers Day seems like a good time to take care of one of them.
Ok, new topic…will this be the day Kristie gives birth to her new little boy?! Call me I’m taking bets.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mothers out there! And here’s a quick little pic of the vanilla cheesecake I made yesterday for the occasion…yes, a food picture. Rare on this blog not to see a person or at least a shoe – I know. :)
That cheesecake looks amazing! You are quite the little baker missy.
And, NOPE, no baby on Mother’s Day. Still waiting. Maybe today for a 5-10-10 Bday, but maybe not. I feel no action.
We have an ultrasound scheduled tomorrow morning to check on him.
Is there some cheesecake left?
