"What is Mother's Day?" my bright-eyed 5 year old son asks.
"It's the day you show your mother how much you love her.", I amusedly answered.
“I am making you something at school. Guess what it is!” he bounces up and down.
“No…” he says with a mischievous smile.
“No…” he giggles.
“Both of your hands? Both of your feet?”
He pauses, and then says, “But don’t guess flowers!”
“Oh, then I have no idea”, I playfully feigned. “I guess I will just have to wait to find out.”
And even though the flowers may not truly surprise me, I will always be amazed by his innocence, his inquisitive nature, and his love for me. I feel very blessed, because these are the Mother’s Day gifts I get EVERY DAY of the year.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful, caring, and strong mothers!
