Mother's day meal

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Mother's day is a day this is both wonderful and difficult all at the same time! I miss my mom!

So I tried to focus on my own little family and enjoy the day with them. Mother's day will never be the same now that my mom has passed on, but I try not to let it dampen the mood.

My kids both made me hand made cards and my daughter bought me a YA fiction book I was anxious to read! ( thoughtful!)

We went to church in the morning and the kids had made a video talking about moms. It was so cute! They showed everyone and it came with lots of laughter!

After church we went to a restaurant for lunch with our good friends.
I had the curry shrimp bowl, without the shrimp! I had chicken instead.
The sauce was coconut based and loads of veggies! Delicious!

This is what it looked like:
( sorry, the pic is not great! only had my phone with me - and they are sideways! Sorry!)

Once I dug in, it looked like this! AND I ate it with chopsticks, right down to the last bite!

Other than that, had a quiet day play with kitties, reading my new book. Relaxing!

I hope that you all had a nice mother's day.

    Glad you had a lovely Mother's Day. Hope your weather
    has improved and you are finally enjoying Spring weather.
    That curry looks so yummy. Have you read your book yet?
    I miss my mum too Mel. I think that even though they are not
    physically in our lives, they are always with us. emoticon
