Today was a delightful day for me......as I slept in a little later than usual, was greeted with lots of loving wishes and hugs.
A great big cup of java and a day that was picture perfect.
I spent the day cleaning and organizing, whilst Emma Sage went grocery shopping with her Daddy. Otto got to go play at his cousins, and Greta caught up on her sleep before work.
Katrina sent lots of love through the phone and we dined with my sister and brother and their families.........truly a perfect day.
Of coarse, Mother's Day is much more difficult when your own beloved Mother is absent, as it reminds you how much she is missed and loved and that having a Mother as loving and giving as your own is one of the most precious things in the world......and it hurts when there is such a void of love.
Emma Sage's class made an adorable cookbook to share with their Mothers........it was such cute to read each child's contribution.
Here is Emma Sage's....I know it will make you smile as much as it did for me.
and if you are ever in the neighborhood, stop by, and we'll pop on over to the river and catch a fresh trout to cook up for you. [we actually had five beautiful rainbow trout fresh caught from the river two weeks ago]
P.S. I've never tried cinnamon with my trout...that was Emma Sage's idea! lol!!!
.....and on the back page it continued:
broccoli, salt and pepper in the the trout pan. Cook it for 2 minutes on high heat. Wait 3 hours on low heat and then it is done cooking. Finally it is time to eat it. Enjoy the food!!!!!
I hope you had a beautiful Mother's Day....one filled with quiet moments, tender thoughts, belly laughs and trout!!!!!
