A Mother's Day Dream

I can hear them coming! The scurry of ten little feet and a not so gentle knocking on my bedroom door as it bursts opens. While I know they are standing by my bed (I can feel them breathing on my face), I try to get those last few minutes of “sleep” before the chaos begins. Through my tired eyes, I can still see my children peering back at me with huge grins. Instantly, I realize it is that time again - Mother’s Day!

My children approach me and exclaim, “Look what we made for you!” Not going to lie to you. While I know I am going to love anything my kids give me, as a mother of five, the dream of a tummy tuck and a trip to St. Thomas come to mind, but waking up out of that dream with a rubbing of the eyes and a slow move to rise up in bed, I see it … the gift!

TreatYourselfDetail2.jpgThe handmade card and pictures sit upon a gorgeous teak tray loaded with goodies. “Happy Mother’s Day!” they say in unison. Set out before me on the tray is the the perfect breakfast - a pint of cookie dough ice cream and a full wine glass adorned with the cutest hummingbird glass marker. Of course, no Mother’s Day tray would be complete without a charming little bud vase holding a single blush-colored flower (my youngest states proudly that she picked it).

There’s no doubt, my kids know my weaknesses: food, drink and pretty things. It is all so beautiful – especially the card and pictures! As I sit in my bed with the 5 littles, all of them devouring the cookie dough ice cream sharing one spoon and me sipping my wine, the sun radiates. I smile, watching my children laugh and giggle while poking at each other. No question, here and now, this is MY dream bubble on Mother’s Day!
