Time for a little bragging here, OK?
Sometimes life experiences happen and we don’t get to publicize them, but this forum allows me to....so here’s a story to be read with tissues!
My beautiful 22-year-old FirstBorn Granddaughter wanted to do something for her mother this year that included a surprize, a gift for Mom, a gift for Nana and something for the whole family to enjoy! This took quite a bit of thought and planning as it’s pretty hard to surprize my daughter.
So, she called me and asked me to clear my calendar for a long weekend over Mother’s Day(which I did immediately), then she got online and purchased an airline ticket for me(with her own hard-earned money, mind you) and sent the itinerary to me on email.
Then she enlisted her StepDad to clear her Mom’s schedule and commitments(hard to do for an over-achiever)cleaned the entire house and prepared the guest room.
Needless to say that when I appeared in my daughter’s living room a few nights later - she screamed and we all cried a few tears!
As if this were not enough........she researched recipes, planned a brunch for "Our Day" and shopped for, cooked and served the food to her mom and me as well as several guests.
We had an amazing weekend doing things together and the gift of sharing time was the best of all!
It was the Second Best Mother’s Day of my life so far! Thanks to God for the amazing reward HE gives us of our grandchildren....our heritage and our future!
p.s. The First Best was when my daughter surprized me with a Mother of the Year honor in 1999, but that’s another story.
