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....

Join in M.O.M., Memories of Mother's Day. If you have some M.O.M. moments to share? Join in the linky below (be sure to read the rules).


You knew that there was going to have to be some, but I promise we are totally keeping it tame.
1) You don’t have to stick to the theme of “memories of Mother’s Day” if you don’t want to, just as long as you have linked up Mother’s Day themed posts we are happy as clams!
2) Nothing that is controversial, I have no idea how you would manage that with this theme but just throwing that out there.
3) Though you don’t have to run around and comment on everyone’s post we would LOVE you so much if you would hope around to a couple that POP out to you.  If you love it share it, give some love.  NO PRESSURE!
4) HAVE FUN!!!
