Happy Mother's Day!

Wey came to my bed an hour ago with a breakfast tray. What is it about breakfast in bed on Mother's Day? It just melts me and makes me happy to be a mom!

"The milk has gone bad, there's no juice and I can't find the maple syrup. If I could drive, I would shop and make you a better breakfast."  The pancakes were soft  and fluffy, the egg perfect and the nutella and jam a nice change from maple syrup. And I love the scented rose from our garden. Wey, this is the best breakfast ever.

My two older kids used to compete with each other to make Mother's Day breakfast for me. One year one of them made bacon n eggs with toast and the other instant noodles. I had to eat everything. Both older kids haven't been around for Mother's Day for many years. Yi has lived and studied in Australia the last 7 years and left last Friday to start work in the Shanghai branch of Australia's largest architecture firm while Ming is studying in Australia. I miss them but hey I have my Wey.

Motherhood is bittersweet but I won't complain today.

Happy Mother's Day to all!

it makes me feel good to read this. yes, Mother's Day is bitterssweet, and not just for moms.

this is the first Mother's Day i have celebrated since my mother passed away last July.

although i have not been in the States for a Mother's Day in years i would always shop online for her and send her her favorite chocolates or cheeses and of course call and talk with her at length. i miss that.

however, in a world full of uncertainty and ineveitable loss i now know that Mother's Day is one thing that will never be taken away from any of us who care to remember. Mothers, husbands, sons or daughters, we have all had this common experience of sharing and unconditinal love in our lives.
