For the last couple of weeks, I've been feeling a pressure in my chest and I knew exactly the root cause. I was sharing this with my closest coworker and she said, "it is called guilt." I teased her for being so Catholic and knowing all too well the signs of guilt. I have always had a challenging relationship with my mother. I love her and care for her deeply but have had to put up what I hope are healthy boundaries. I can't share too many details in this post, it is just too public of a forum. The last thing I want to do is to hurt this woman who has given me so much. So then, let's focus on what we did on Sunday. My mother loves to go out to eat. We ordered some of her favorites starting with the whimsical looking crab rangoons pictured above.
We stopped over to my place where I spoiled her with a mountain of rubber stamps. A dear friend of mine was clearing out her HUMONGOUS stash. Knowing how much my mother loves to make cards, I jumped on the opportunity to help my friend unload and brighten my mom's day. It was so darling to see her like a little child sorting the mound into neat piles as she checked out each stamp design.
