No you didn't miss it. Mother's Day has not come and gone but is quickly approaching.
Do you have a list of things you would like? Does your family go out to eat or celebrate in a special way?
When I was growing up we always went to church with my grandmother on Mother's Day, she wore a Mother's Day corsage and we ate at the church grounds. IF we did not eat there, we went to our favorite seafood place. It was a day of family, fun, food and celebrating. I don't remember gifts being given except for flowers. My grandmother loved flowers, so each of her girls gave her a potted plant that would be placed in the yard later.
My mother, like her mother, loves flowers. I rarely am home for Mother's Day and we usually eat out. My boys almost always made me a handmade card, which I adored.
Here is my grandmother in 1970 wearing a corsage, it was taken either Mother's Day or Easter and I'm not sure.
This is my mom, 2011, she is inspecting the collage photo of me and her grandkids I made for her. She loved it. FINALLY a gift she likes! She loved the strawberries and cookies as well.
**Please, tell your mother you love her. Show her with hugs, kisses and time spent together. My grandmother passed away last March and she is missed greatly.**
Mother's Day we always have great desserts. My mom, like me, loves desserts.She used to make this wonderful recipe and I have enjoying fixing it for family and friends as well.
A great no bake cool dessert. Hope you enjoy it and that you will take time to LOVE your mom, even if you don't like her. God chose her to have you, my mom and I have not always gotten along and there was a time when we did not see or speak to each other, but she is the only mom I have and I love her.
Enjoy your day, your mom and a great dessert!
