I hope you had as lovely a day as I had. After lunch, I had the chance to browse in a store while Peter and Kevin were off playing tennis with Andy and Chris Rinek (Peter's nephews and Kevin's cousins who came to visit.) I came a across a small book titled Mother's Aprons Strings, a small "gifty-type" book filled with motherly advise, euphemisms and remembrances and fell upon this page where an anonymous person--a gardener of course or at least the child of a mother who gardened had written, "If I had a flower for every time I thought of my mother, I could walk in my garden forever."
What a lovely reminiscence on this very special day when we think of our mothers, especially, and also aunts, sisters and daughters--all loving caregivers in some way or another whether they have children of their own or not.
Happy Mother's Day! I hope you had as wonderful a day as I had.
