Mother’s Day – 2016


In May 2010, David and I rode in a cable car in Hong Kong.  Lovely memory!

Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers. For us, today is like any other day, because David doesn’t consider me his mother, so why celebrate?  His own mother is dead, as is mine.

Maria will celebrate Mother’s Day with her husband’s side of the family, as usual. Lisa resides in Nevada and won’t be here to celebrate the day with us, either.

This afternoon, David and I will eat a sandwich for lunch and then attend a symphony concert at the Blaisdell Concert Hall. The concert will feature a piano concerto by Mozart and a symphony by Brahms.  We are looking forward to it.

Tomorrow morning, David will fly to San Francisco, but I’ll be seeing my gastroenterologist.

    I hope you find the time to mother yourself today! BTW, I found one drowned slug in my trap this morning. 🙂

    My daughter works on Sundays (she’s a minister) and the only way I could spend the day with her would be to go where she lives. Doesn’t work for us this year. We will see her next Sunday, which is fine with me.

    So sorry you have to be at the doctor’s while David is in San Francisco.

    Sounds like your day is special in its own way. My mother is deceased and my children live in other states, but I celebrate the day in my own way. Also, my children always call so for me a celebration does not always mean the physical presence of my loved ones.

    Well Gigi, you are not my mother but I am wishing you a Happy Mother’s Day anyway, even though it is one day late, and I am smiling. Hope you are too. Happy travels to David and I hope your doctor’s appointment goes well.
