I'm joining up with my Bloggin' Buddy Friends in a linky this week.... why? Cus Mother's Day is this weekend! Ahhh, that kind of crept up on me. This week is also Teacher Appreciation Week to.
But let's forget about stressin' out. Memories of Mother's Day. I have actually celebrated 9 wonderful years as a Mother and they have all been special but for this week long linky I am going to share some of my favorites as well as some from before being a mother, way before, from when I was the gifter.
For today, my post is going to be a bit somber. It's the first Mother's Day with out my father. It was so special because my husband made it special. I don't know why but I missed my dad everyday, but especially on that day. Without him my mom could have not conceived me! I guess I also ached because it would be the first year that my mom would not get a gift from my dad. He gave her something special every year.
We all went out to eat to one of my parents favorite restaurants and at the time hubby was working late nights. I wasn't sure he was going to make dinner. But he did, of course. He made it, with a dozen roses and bearing gifts. He got my mom a Beatles T-shirt and a CD. He also got me a CD (remember those) but it was Beatles #1's! OMG, I love that CD. Of course, my mom and I cried. My dad was a huge Beatles fan and one of my fav CD's was that one. It wasn't just the gifts that made it special. After that we just talked and talked over delicious food and reminisced about happier times....
