I think most of my readers (and lurkers) are moms...
What is your perfect idea of Mother's Day?
For a long time we went to 'the club' for Mother's Day because that's where my gramma wanted to go. After she died, I thought 'I never have to do that again'. It's a nice place, it's just not my choice for Mother's Day. To be selfish, it's my day and I want to go where I want to go and since I don't have a mom, I guess I figure I have free reign to choose.
I don't even remember what I did last year. I know my day ended at Alive because it was a Sunday.
And this Mother's Day weekend, I am doing things I love all weekend. Saturday my girlfriend is having a party so I have to cook some food for that, and I am going Thrifting & to breakfast with Amanda and the girls (Ava, Lana, & Phyllis) in the morning. Excited to spend some time with Amanda. And hopefully we'll get some good bargins at our "secret" hot spot thrift store in Trenton.
On Sunday, I am going to Grace Gospel Fellowship for church, Liz and I are taking our children (her son Kamari & my peanuthead Phyllis) to the zoo. I haven't figured out what we are going to eat because Mother's Day is over-priced and always packed at restaurants, so I think I am going to make a picnic lunch to be consumed at the park before we go! I'm excited. Maybe I'm a dork for being excited about it, but I am. And then off to Alive to see 'my kids' and see how God is moving in their lives!
Simple things in life, no show, just go. I don't need some big show to try impress people, I just sometimes want to be.
What's your plans?
