Today my boys (DH and DS) took me to the Sherman Library and Gardens for a lovely Mother’s Day lunch. These are just two of the ninety bazillion shots we took of the food and grounds.
The morning was especially poignant for who was absent. DD is still in London, studying for exams. Happily, she’ll spend Father’s Day with DH somewhere in Italy, then they’ll both return at the end of June. I missed sharing the day with my mom in Fremont, although she had a lovely meal of her own with some of my siblings. But also, absent from this earth but everpresent in our thoughts is DH’s beloved mother, Paula. It’s the family’s first Mother’s Day without her since her passing last October. We miss her desperately and call on her intercession for us often. God bless you, Mom, and all mothers everywhere!
