Inexplicably, I forgot to mention that I also got lovely Mother’s Day greetings from Minga’s grand-daughter Lily and daughter Mari. Panama has a Mother’s Day but it’s in December, around Dec. 8 and the Feast of the Immaculate Conception honoring the Virgin Mary. Lily and Mari had to make a point of remembering the date of ours, which is very sweet.
My “quiet-ish” Mother’s Day was really filled with love and quite affirming. Sara and Matt’s gift of flowers is bringing color and fragrance to the kitchen, where the flowers sit on my breakfast counter. The good feeling engendered will last as long as the flowers, and much beyond. 🙂
