Lately I’ve been talking about Mother’s Day, mainly at Zoom meetings. How do we celebrate without hugs, shared dinners, and of course, desserts?
People are putting on their thinking caps and doing the best they can. Lots of take-out dinners served to families at a state park with an effort at social distancing. And don’t forget those masks which hark back to the Lone Ranger. And what about entertainment?
Video games? Absolutely not. Checkers? Definitely not for several reasons–too difficult for the little ones and too much of a temptation to violate the six-foot rule. Our family has an added bonus–our hosts Tim and Lesley have a corner lot with a huge back yard. Last I heard, the children may play “Charades,” “Red Light,Green Light ,” and maybe even”Mother, May I?” After all it’s Mother’s Day. I do know that I’m not the final decider of such things.
Our agenda will definitely include one activity all of us enjoy: playing with Tim and Lesley’s new puppy, a darling Bernese Mountain dog. The little puppy actually belongs to all of them, but I hear Tim has been taking on the night shift.
Pray for sunshine? Happy Mother’s Day!
