Happy Mother's Day 2020

Mother's Day Present Flowers Balloon 5-10-20I hope your Mother's Day is going well. For about the last 10 years, I've spent the month of May in Madrid with my daughter Lisa and her family. This year is very different. Although I bought a ticket in early March, it soon became apparent as the pandemic unfolded that I wouldn't be able to go this year. I'm tempted to head to Sacramento to visit my daughter Mona. However, that wouldn't be wise.

Also sad, Lisa and the kids won't be able to visit us this year in the United States in July, and, in addition, I won't be able to visit Spain for the holidays either.

For Mother's Day, Mona sent me flowers and chocolates, shown above, which were delivered Saturday. The delivery was a big surprise because the flowers were scheduled to come Monday. I opened the garage door to take a letter out to the mailbox. Right there, in my driveway was a white van with a guy was getting out of it. It was shocking because it's so long since I've had company or visited anyone.

I was happy to get the presents, especially the chocolate, to help celebrate Mother's Day. But I miss my daughters and grandchildren so much. They're the light of my life

A survey showed what most moms want for Mother's Day is to spend time with their family. An ideal Mother’s Day would include time for mom, time with the family, and some together time watching TV and movies as well as a special dinner. For gifts, a majority of those surveyed said they'd like a gift card for an experience they could enjoy after the covid-19 pandemic has passed.

So, for Mother's Day next year, good luck to us all.
