She took me to galleries and introduced me to art.
She took me to museums and introduced me to history.
She took me to stores and introduced me to budgeting!
She took me to plays and operas and introduced me to music.
She took me to libraries and introduced me to learning.
She took me to restaurants and introduced me to cuisine.
She took me to church and introduced me to God.
We visited and traveled to many places across the United States but the best place to learn was where I lived as a child, which was NYC! Living in the Big Apple gave me a richness and exposure to cultural diversity that can’t be gotten anyplace else. My mother took us to Broadway Musicals, the Botanical Gardens, the Museum of Natural History. We have tasted some of the finest foods in the country and meet some of the finest people from Hassidic Jews to descendants of Polish immigrants. Every day life in the city was a teachable moment! As a matter of fact every day with my mother was a teachable moment! Life hasn’t always been easy but it has been interesting! My mother is the best mother in the world to me and I wouldn’t trade her for another!So to my mother, I Love you and thank you for my life!
Happy Mother's Day!
So now that you have the introduction to my mother! I can move on to how I spent my Mother's Day. I started my morning with a very early breakfast in bed. My oldest daughter made me a Frittata and let me tell you it was delicious!
And Then I got a dozen yellowish/pinkish roses from my daughter in law, and a dozen red roses from my younger son, and my sister gave me 6 pink roses. My assortment is fabulous!
Then I napped and got up to go have brunch with a group of FABULOUS ladies!
My mother, my sister, my daughter in law, and I went to Crescent Beach Inn, which is a very nice establishment located on Lake Ontario. We ate, laughed, and had a great time together. We talked about the future, our plans, and our upcoming move to Texas! We talked about the many, many blessings that God has showered upon our family! It was a great way to spend my day! By the way did I already say that these ladies are FABULOUS!!!!
We had an awesome time!! I pray that your Mother's Day was AWESOME too!!
Peace & Love!
