Mother’s Day is just a few short days away and while I am sitting here on my back deck ALONE, writing, sipping a cold brew and being dive-bombed by a bumble bee, I can’t help think, well the solitude is pretty nice, minus the bee.
I realize that at this very moment I sound like a real winner. Basking in the quiet and silence and alone time. Maybe that is why this damn bee keeps attacking me. In reality, I would actually be quite sad if my Mother’s Day gift was a day to myself. I thrive off of the quality time we make for our family. So, while the quiet at this very moment is lovely, I enjoy it more in its short term.
Now, I would be lying if I did not say that an hour extra to sleep in and a day of not worrying about what to make for meals, this Mother’s Day does sound delightful. I think if anything those two acts of kindness and love speak volumes. But for those looking for the perfect gift to wrap up in a box and give to the woman they love most in their life, well I have a few ideas for you.
