It's coming... are you excited? I am not actually. :)
Why? I guess because it hasn't really sunk in that I am a mother and Reese is too young to understand the meaning of mother's day. Anyway... It's not really a big deal. It has become so commercialized that I don't find it special anymore. In fact.... alot of special days are no longer that special anymore. My sister and I used to make or buy cards for my mother together with a gift. It is something we look forward to. I will write words of love to her and certain things in my heart that I was not able to tell her face to face. It is always a joy to watch her open up her present. The past few years, mother's Day was celebrated with a dinner and a small gift and not much excitement. Last year, we had a simple dinner and my sister on behalf of Reese, got me a pink carnation. It was really lovely but I still find it hard to believe that I am a mother! I just don't feel that I deserve to be honored...hahaha
So this year, I am planning a family dinner and hopefully I can cook up a storm.... ;) and I am going to buy a card and write words of love to my mother again. Maybe for myself I will get a big bouquet of flowers on behalf of Reese?? *wink* .....
Some mothers wanted to spend Mother's Day away from their kids for once (totally understandable) but I just want to be with family. I want us all to have a nice dinner and chat and laugh and enjoy Reese together.
Ps: While writing this post, I realized that I miss my maternal grandmother. Ama.. I love you always.
