Mother’s Day 2018

Hannah made Mother’s Day 2018 absolutely perfect from start to finish!

When we woke up I was asked to stay in bed while she prepared breakfast.  She called me downstairs when her masterpiece was ready.

I was welcomed by a path of Hershey Kisses.  Chocolate?  Yes please!!

She created a delicious breakfast for us to share!

After breakfast it was time for church.  I will say that Mother’s Day was one of the few days each year that I really struggled going to church before Hannah was born.  I wanted so desperately to be a Mom but since I had never married (I was not willing to settle for a guy just to be married and be a mom) so I spent many single years going to church with an aching heart on Mother’s Day.  My heart still goes out to other singles and couples who do not have children as I do not know if that is their choice or if becoming parents is a challenge for them.  Regardless, I think of them and pray especially for them on Mother’s Day.  Singles and couples without children are those my heart reaches out to on this day.

On Mother’s Day our church provides gifts to Mom’s in the congregation who meet different criteria each year.  This year one gift went to the mom with the picture in her wallet of her child that was taken the longest ago.  One mom had a picture in her wallet that was taken in 1945!! Hannah was selected to help hand out gifts to the moms who won each gift.

After church Hannah blessed me with a number of sweet gifts!  (Thank you grandma for taking her shopping at Dollerama the week before Mother’s Day!  Hannah looks forward to this traditional shopping trip with you before each special day!)

So sweet!  Hannah created a number of ‘Sap’ Winking smile day coupons for me!  It will be a treat to use these coupons and spend special times with my girl.

An annual tradition we enjoy is our dinner at a local restaurant with Grandma and Grandpa and then dessert together in their home.
