Most Sundays I like to take it pretty easy. Since I work Monday through Saturday, Sunday is the day that I try to get any errands that I have to do done as early in the day as possible. Then I spend the rest of the day parked on the couch and relaxing. After all, even the Good Lord took a day for rest at the end of a long week.
Today, however, is Mother's Day. It is the first Mother's Day that has occurred since our son went away to his school. As much as I would have liked to have spent the day vegging on the couch, I could not let the day pass without my wife seeing our son on Mother's Day. After all he will always be her baby boy. So, we left the house early this morning for the hour and a half drive to spend some time with him.
We walked into his dorm area and there was nobody around. We headed out towards the main building to see if we could find them. He was coming out from breakfast when we first saw him. As soon as we saw him his eyes lit up and a big smile crossed his face. He proceeded to tell us what he ate for breakfast and that 7pm tonight there was going to be a dance.
All in all, it was a very good Mother's Day, though we were out longer than I usually like on a Sunday, but it was well worth it. So to my mother, my wife, her mother, and all of the mothers out there, I wish you all a very Happy Mother's Day.
