I Went To My Mom’s

I went to my mom’s.

My husband and I.

We took her to lunch.

At her favorite restaurant.

But we weren’t allowed to eat dessert.

Because she made cake for us at home.

We went to a nursery

To buy some snow in summer.

But they didn’t have snow in summer.

They had snow on the mountains,

But it wasn’t the same.

We went back to her home.

Sat in the sun

And ate some cake.

Chocolate cherry cake.

It’s one of the top three cakes in the world.

And fresh made iced tea.

It was hard to leave.

Knowing the best gift we could give her

Is having us there.

So I’ll go back to mom’s.

Even when it’s not Mother’s Day.

Because she deserves that.

Happy Mother’s Day Mom.

  5. What a wonderful gift to give your mother for Mother’s Day!! That’s too bad you couldn’t get her the snow in summer. I am assuming this is a plant?

    This sounded like a perfect visit but for a couple minutes I contemplated, trying to picture your history and mother.

    (Forgive this thought but two of my best friends do this. . .I was almost thinking you went to her grave or a special place but you responded to everyone, as if you had spent time so an embarrassed at my first thought.)
    It is a blessing, she is still with you~ πŸ’ your extra sweet cherry chocolate cake baking mother. Happy Mother’s Day, belatedly. xo
