There are only a handful of things that we have in complete common with our fellow man. One of them being we all have a mother. Now the definition of mother varies from person to person. There are step-moms, mother-in-laws, grandmothers, aunts, sisters, friends; all can be mothers.
Mothers’s Day is the one special day is taken out of the entire year to pay homage to Mom. They take care of us, protect us, scold us and groom us. Mold and direct us. Dislikes some of the things we do and love us anyway. Maybe we should actually take all 365 days to honor such a role.
Here is a tasty little treat you can make for the Moms in your life for Mother’s Day or any day this summer. The weather has been beautiful, and a nice light lunch out in the sunshine with good conversation would make mom super thrilled that she can say she raised such a fine child.
