Since becoming a mother I celebrate Mother’s Day the same way each year. Not only do I celebrate my fabulous mother at a festive lunch with my children and Tory but include my sisters—who are moms as well and Ellen, Tory’s mom and his sister. Sitting around the table, usually outside and often on a sunny day, around so many wonderful moms, I always feel especially lucky to have my extended family close to me on this day. As a child, I always made my mother an original Mother’s Day card or small drawing to let her know how much I loved and appreciated her and I have continued that tradition to this day. Even though I now buy her real gifts, the card or drawing is still what she cares most about.
Happy (early) Mother’s Day!
