It’s time to unveil the goings on of another Mother’s Day in the Still household. Experienced Mom’s all over the nation set their sights low on this day, and hope they can simply survive the love and attention or lack thereof.After our traditional discussion that I am really not that hard to shop for and he can never go wrong with a plant, my husband pampered me completely by taking over all the cooking. It was a major event that took him all afternoon. It’s a good thing he doesn’t cook for a living. We had barbequed steak, a green salad, and baked potato. The food was delicious. It was beginning to look like I was not going to get any blog fodder this year but then my daughter Briana and her new boyfriend arrived.
She brought dessert and a gift. Her boyfriend brought flowers. Briana does not cook so thankfully she bought all the makings for strawberry shortcake. It was shaping up to be a banner day in the Still household when Briana reached for a small bag she had with her and began pitching her sale.
“Mom, I know how fulfilled you feel when we need you and how happy you are when you can do something for us so I wanted to make your day perfect with this little offering.”
She pulled out two of her ‘favorite dresses’ that just needed a couple of little stitches on the sewing machine. Now I ask you, wasn’t that the most thoughtful thing you have ever heard of? What a wonderful way to top off the day.
