I am working this year on Mothers Day, I go in tomorrow at . We are taking my Mother out for Mothers Day breakfast tomorrow before she goes to church.
I have so many lovely Mothers Day memories, maybe because it comes at such a wonderful time of year.
My most treasured Mothers Day memories however are of when (J.A.M.), my 3 children were very little. Joeys teacher taught her 1st grade class one year how much mothers loved breakfast in bed on Mothers Day.
My children took that lesson and created a tradition that lasted for years. In the early years, I was always surprised with the most creative and unusual culinary delights one could imagine. Ive had untoasted English muffins smeared with strawberry cake frosting, cinnamon rolls, pretzels and vanilla wafers with peanut butter, and what ever other surprises they could dream up. After a few years I got smart and started leaving the fixings for the perfect breakfast in bed where they could easily be found on Mothers Day morning. The pictures above are of a Thank You card I wrote to them in 1997 after a beautiful breakfast in bed.
The first time they went shopping alone was also for Mothers Day. I gave them some money and turned them loose in Wal-Mart while I waited in the snack bar. I was surprised the next morning with the most unusual package of hand held American Flags, (3 of them), highlighters in various colors and white out. I guess that these were the things that they thought I wanted most
Awww precious memories,
