Yesterday was Mother’s Day, a time for honoring mothers (and maternal figures) for all that they have done and still do for us: bandaging boo-boos, making our favorite dessert, holding us when we are sad, etc.
So, today, I’d like to introduce my mom (Ms. Jean) to you and give her a “shout out” for all that she does for me every day. My husband and I have lived with my mother for 10+ years and we have a terrific relationship.
Mom’s favorite thing to do is play in the dirt. She loves flowers. She particularly likes to buy flowers from the Lowe’s Sale Rack (she calls these the 1/2 dead flowers) and bring them back to life by giving them fresh dirt, plant food, sunshine, etc. She loves a garden and is so excited about some raised beds we’ve got this year.
For as long as I can remember, my mom has made the absolute best muffins for me. The key ingredient is All-Bran cereal and they are absolutely delicious. All-Bran Muffins, chicken casserole, and squash casserole are my favorite foods that she makes.
I love the relationship my mother and husband have. Mom had girls so she never had a son, but she treats my husband as good (ok, sometimes better) as she treats me. They pick on one another, have their “talk time” before I get home from work, and genuinely enjoy each other’s company. The three of us together make a crazy, but unique, trio.
What does (or did) your Mom like to do? What were her hobbies? What are your special memories? If you didn’t get a chance to share anything about your mother (or a maternal figure) yesterday, I encourage you to do so today: feel free to share in the comment section below, post on social media, etc.
