He took us to brunch

We went to our favorite neighborhood place, and when the bill came my son insisted on paying. He had worked an early shift at the sports club that morning, and had just gotten paid for the week. We graciously accepted his generosity.

It was a lovely, bantering company, and afterward the three of us and his friend who is visiting for the weekend strolled down to the river and sat for a while in the sun, listening to the water lapping against the pier.
Walking down Broadway we ran into dear friends also doing the brunch thing. We're back home now and movie watching is happening while I upload the photos my son allowed me to take to my heart's content, but of course, that was just for today.
And how brave am I, posting a full length photo of myself. I am standing next to my boy, so nobody's looking at me anyway. Happy mother's day to all you wonderful mothers out there, whether you gave birth from your own body or helped nurture an already birthed soul. I hope your day is as full of gentle and humorous moments as mine was.

    What a good day we've both had.

  8. What a glorious Mother's Day! Thanks for sharing it with us. My weekend was filled with extended family and then I had Sunday with my grownkids and grandboy. All was very heartwarming. Glad yours was, too. x0 N2
