Last year on Mother’s Day, I was the luckiest mum on the Earth.
Mandy sat in the grocery cart as I scanned the store for canned vegetables. “How about this, Mum?”She asked, and handed me a can of asparagus. “I love asparagus!” I told her. “Asparagus is my favorite vegetable, but it’s just too costly.” I put the can back on the shelf as Mandy watched, disappointed.
Last year, on this special day, I opened a clumsily wrapped present from under my pillow. It was a can of asparagus. Mandy beamed in delight as she explained how she had saved her pennies to buy me the best Mother’s Day gift I’d ever received.
We are all excited that Mother’s day is around the corner again.
Your mother wanted the last piece of the chocolate cake. Instead, she let YOU have it. A perfect day to celebrate the millions of sacrifices your mother makes every day. Shower your moms with love, affection and gifts. We wish you a very happy Mother’s Day!
