It's a beautiful day in these parts with ambient temperature in the 60s (°F). Of course, I prefer overcast skies and fog or rain. Instead, we have sunny, clear skies with a light cool breeze -- weather 99% of Clevelanders probably prefer, especially for those traveling to celebrate Mother's Day.
Mother's Day is celebrated differently in our household because our nearest mother lives 1,200 miles away. Our routine is to send gifts a week prior and call our mothers with well-wishes. We are fortunate that our families are healthy and are deeply grateful for the sacrifices made so we may become productive and think independently.
I saw a photograph today of a sign that read, "Happy Baby Momma's Day" and laughed. You know, that similar kind of laugh when your car breaks down 10 miles from home, it's pouring, your shoe breaks 2 miles into the muddy walk, and when you finally arrive home, peeled off your drenched clothes, enjoying a warm sudsy bath, a toilet falls through the ceiling.
Well, hopefully you brought your keys with you. Anyway, happy Mother's Day!
