When Joe went to pick up his prom corsage at Kroger on Friday evening I said “Did you get your mom a Mother’s Day Card?” He said “Oh crap – not yet.” I said “Get her a Whitman’s Sampler from you and Kenny too – Tom already has his gift covered.” He said “Do you want me to get a card for you to give her too?”
We will have our traditional Mother’s Day Breakfast – McDonald’s.
I love you Beth.
I don’t like that the religion of my own mother makes Mother’s Day a forbidden holiday, but this one will be like so many others (example: My grandmother giving me a check for $21 when I turned 21 and saying “it’s not a birthday present, I just wanted to give this to you). I will call her and talk and tell her I love her. I will get her up to day on Joe’s prom, Kenny’s concert and Tom’s camping adventures. I will get her up to date on my life. I just won’t say “Happy Mother’s Day”.
I love you mom.
