Mother’s Day 2019

Happy Mother’s Day to my sweet mom, who makes sure my food is kept gluten and lactose free and helps with scrapbooking and art projects and everything in between.

Last night, I left out a gift from me and a small gift from the Boy. I gave her a miniature rose that she can keep on the porch and an IOU for Kick Axe. She thought that it looked cool and would like to try it. Once she finishes travelling for work, she wants to see the Lantern Festival, so we can do that and go ax throwing after.

We enjoyed dinner at Creed’s Steak and Seafood. We enjoyed our dinner, shared laughs and conversations. Sam, our waiter, was awesome and made sure my meal was kept gluten free. He sat down with me to talk about my allergies and was attentive. He was also attentive to mom and made her feel like the queen she is.

Happy Mother’s Day to all women out there – the pet moms, the moms who adopted, the women who have tried to conceive but lost their pregnancy, women who have decided not to become moms, moms with strained relationships with their offspring, teachers, caregivers, and grandmothers.

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I am elated to know you had a nice Mother’s Day celebration with your mom. Dinner at Creed’s Steak and Seafood sounds like my kind of thing. Mrs. Shady is the one who usually orders steak while I always get seafood. It was nice of Sam the server to assist you with GF choices and to make your mother feel like visiting royalty on her special day. I am sure you and your mother will enjoy the upcoming Lantern Festival. It must be therapeutic to throw the axe in that tavern, and I’m betting you and your mom will enjoy sharing that experience. Maybe you’ll run into the same gang you threw the axe with the other night.

    Once again, happy Mother’s Day to you, to your mom and to all the other types of mothers that you described. Have a wonderful week ahead, dear friend JM!
