Here is a compilation of Mother’s Day celebrations. I don’t know what we will do this year 2020 with COVID-19. I haven’t been out of the house. My husband has been the one to do the shopping. God bless him!
I pray that all mothers out there will have a lovely and restful day with their families. For all of us who cannot be with our families may we see them through FaceTime, Zoom or talk to them on the phone. Take care and be safe and well! Love to all! God Bless!
We celebrated Mother’s Day 2019 a week earlier with my daughter and her family. My granddaughter and grandson made ceramic figures from a pottery place. An adorable elephant that looks like Dumbo from my grandson and a lovely little candle holder from my granddaughter. Here they are below.
This is part of a post from 2018 that I wanted to share once again for Mother’s Day. Below is what we did last year. This year we are going over to my son’s and daughter-in-law’s for dinner instead of a lunch or brunch. She always has quite a spread. I am looking forward to it.
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
This year we celebrated Mother’s Day the week before the actually day. My lovely daughter-in-law always has my daughter and her family and John and I over to her house for a delicious repast.
This year she outdid herself. She had mixed veggies with ranch dip, Cape Cod chips with homemade caramelized onion dip, shrimp cocktail, and cheese and crackers for starters.
For the main course she served marinated beef strips with roasted red peppers, paprika chicken legs, potato salad, sliced tomatoes and mozzarella, corn salsa with cheese, tossed spinach salad with raisins and walnuts. For dessert my daughter made carrot cake (top photos) and I brought a mixture of chocolate fudge cake, carrot cake, Boston cream cake, lemon cake. I was good somewhat and only ate a small piece of homemade carrot cake.
Sorry I didn’t think of taking a photo of all the food. We ate it all too quickly!
I received a gift certificate to my favorite local restaurant from my son and daughter-in-law and three grandsons, and from my daughter and family, a pair of comfy slippers and a lovely figurine (chosen by my granddaughter just for me) to commemorate the Monarch butterfly. Here is the paper that came with my figurine which is called Butterfly!
Here is a photo of the beautiful, graceful figurine. It looks like a butterfly, reason for its name.
It was a wonderful day to spend with my family! I feel blessed!
Here is a poem I wrote in memory of my mother.
Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!
By Janice Spina
You were always there for me
To guide and pave the way.
You bandaged my scraped knees.
You hugged and kissed the hurt away.
You listened when I needed an ear
To solve a problem you were always there.
You taught me right from wrong
and soothed me to sleep with a sweet song.
When I was sick you stroked my fevered brow.
and slept by me as long as time would allow.
You have been gone now for many a year
but in my heart I hold you forever near.
I miss and think of you every single day.
But I know I will join you when our Lord calls me His way.
Wishing all mothers out there a happy and blessed Mother’s Day! May your family surround you with love on your day!
Thank you for stopping by. You are always welcome! Come again soon!

A delightful post, Janice. I have been run off my feet for the last week trying to keep up with work, home schooling and housework. Today it is mothers day and I am more related. I had a lovely tea outside with my parents (who are both sheltering in place with us) and we ate the delicious Soetkoekie (sweet biscuits) I made for us all.
How lovely, Robbie! Take care and stay well! Sweet biscuits sounds good something like Portuguese sweet bread or muffins. 💐💕
Happy Mother’s Day even though you will have to spend it alone this year! The love will still be there. xox
Thank you, Darlene! Hope you had a good one too. We did FaceTime with my daughter and two grandchildren. My son stopped by and left me a plant at my front door and talked to me from a distance with one of his three sons. It was nice to see them. Miss the hugs and kisses though, sigh! 💕😘 Stay safe and well.
