A series of photos can tell a story; a lovely story of a day full of sunshine and love from a family. My family made sure my day was extra special and was filled with all my favorite things. A nice and relaxing morning, an early morning text from Megan sending love from Pittsburgh, thoughtful gifts and flowers, a late breakfast at my favorite spot, mimosas made for me by Melissa, followed by an afternoon trip to the movie theatre.
Of course I was missing Megan. Mother's Day isn't complete when your empty nest isn't quite full, but she will be home for a visit next weekend and that makes me extremely happy. I have more plans than can fit into the weekend, but it will mostly be about catching up on all the hugs I have missed.
So many wonderful Mother's Day celebrations over the years, so many memories and so many reasons to feel loved.
