Over the years, I’ve saved all my cards from my daughter, her first handmade ones from preschool. I especially love the ones which included such things as
1. A breakfast in bed (from a 6 year old – wonder what that would be?) and
2. daily art or paintings for a week.

This Sunday my very special gift is a visit from my daughter… how fantastic that will be.
As for a great Mother’s Day gift, I love this one from my good friend Debra Prinzing…(reviewed by LATimes today)

Happy Mother’s Day!
