I have fond memories of my four sons, who are all grown up and married now, as little boys running in to give me breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day. Their excited smiling faces, filled with the anticipation of my reaction, are etched in my memory. I will always remember one Mother’s Day in particular when they ran in with their adorable homemade cards. They had pasted beautiful cut-out hearts all over their cards professing their love. Unfortunately, they got a bit confused with all the hearts that they mistakenly wrote “Happy Valentine’s Day” inside! Too funny….we still laugh about it to this day….well, actually I haven’t let them forget it! But I know they love me on Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day and every day! And now I am blessed to be the grandma of my five little loves and my Mother’s Day is bursting with love and happiness! Enjoy breakfast in bed! Happy Mother’s Day!
