For My Mom, Naturally


I didn't send her a card, or flowers, or, well, anything. Not because I don't love her (I do) or appreciate her (oh, believe me, I do), but because . . . I'm kind of lame. I'm not going to write an essay about how great my mother is, because it would be too long and it would just embarrass her, anyway. Let's just say that if I grow up to be like my mother, that'll be just fine with me.


So Mom, I took this pretty picture of a flower for you today, just to show you I remembered that today is Mother's Day, and I wish I could be there to celebrate with you in person.

Love you, Mere. Happy Mother's Day.

I'm touched, truly. Who would have thunk that I'd be sending a Mother's Day response to my baby daughter's blog. Getting old is great in this day and age, especially when I have a daughter that makes me so proud. Actually, blessed is what comes to mind.

Obviously, the flower is from your garden. Beautiful, and I won't have to watch it die. As for the being together to celebrate, we filled that square on my 60th - remember? I don't think I could have survived another surprise visit!

Love you bunches.
