|My daughter made me this plate.|
HAPPY MOTER'S DAY.
This plate has become "THE PLATE" in our home. Every Mother's Day, I am served on this plate. And we remember the Mother's Day card my son made me as a child in pre-school. The teacher asked the children questions and wrote down their answers. One question was, "What does your mother do all day?"
My son's answer? "Clean house and ride her horse."
The teacher pressed for more. "Surely she does more than that."
"Nope," my son reassured her matter-of-factly. "That's it."
I'm a very interesting person.
That plate and card are my forgotten, broken coffee mug.
And if any of you guys out there think that Mother's Day isn't worth a coffee mug and would rather spend your money on trading cards and beef-flavored bubble gum, here's a little peek into what it takes to become a mother.
