Mother's Day

Today was a little bittersweet. This is the second Mother's Day since Mom has been gone. Still miss her just as much every day. But not grieving as one who has no hope. I 'll see her again.
So when my daughter invited us to her house for a lunch with her family and her in-laws, it was nice change. What a sweet time. We were met at the door by our grandkids (a first grader and a second grader) with aprons on. The table was prepared with china and once seated the kids took our orders. "Yes I would like some of all the salads--fruit, chicken, pasta etc..." "All of it MeMe?" "Yes, one of each." From the kitchen my son-in-law called out, "do all the salads go on one plate"----"yes"---"O crud".
So sweet. Then homemade necklaces and gifts out of baked clay. Meant so much to me. Money couldn't buy that.
Oh, and my mom, she would have loved this.
