Mother’s Day comes around once a year, and it is always a pleasure and a burden to find the right gift to express the appropriate sentiment of love and appreciation. Do I send a bouquet of flowers, a basket of goodies, a few bottles of wine … a spa gift card??? Maybe I should just fly her down to stay with me a while so she can get a break from her nagging hubby (kidding … well, mostly kidding). 😛
Many moms will tell you it’s the thought that counts, and that is a totally true statement … but I still like to do something a little extra special to pay tribute to the amazing job she did for my brother and I when we were growing up. And if I were being honest, I certainly wasn’t the easiest child or teenager in the world!
I remember the time when I decided to pretend I was Picasso … and I painted the entire bathroom in varying shades of purple crayons. I can only imagine how my mother must have actually felt at the time … but she handled it like a champ.
There are plenty of other things I could list out, but I’ll spare you the long-winded drivel. We are have our “bad kid” moments. Maybe not as bad as mine, but moments nonetheless.
