Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there! We are so influential to so many people in our lives - especially our children. My mother-in-law is always telling me that the mother is the glue that holds a family together. This is a day to remember how much love our mothers have given us and how strong and loving, warm, and giving our mothers have been. I am so thankful and blessed to be a mother and am thankful for my mother, my grandmothers and all the women who have been in my life. My mother lives a long days drive away from where I live. I often wished we lived so much closer so that we could get together more often. Even for just an afternoon tea. Even though she is far, I will always feel near to her. Here's hoping you have a wonderful mother's day and can spend it with your mother, whether in heart and mind, near or far.
p.s. Here's a link to some yummy and pretty flower-shaped pancakes. If you're so inclined to cook a Mother's Day breakfast... these would be nice.
hugs and love,
