Hello everyone. Happy Saturday. How are you? For all you mother’s out there, Happy Mother’s Day tomorrow!
Today, I didn’t see my dad like every Saturday. Mom and I didn’t go to church either. Instead, we went to an eye exam at my cousin’s office. I’m a bit bummed not going to morning mass and visiting Dad like we usually do. But that was my decision. I needed contacts soon and my cousin’s office was open today. I never went to it before. I didn’t calculate how long it will take; will I get lost on the way; how much traffic, etc. I’m more spontaneous than plan-ahead-type-of girl. Tomorrow morning we will go to mass and then visit Dad.
What are you all doing for Mother’s Day? I colored a picture a teacher gave to the kids one day to color for their mother’s. I work at a private school. I used to at a daycare color with the kids. They had extra coloring page, so I decided to take one and color with the kids. Today, I finished coloring the picture. From Walgreens I made mom a photo album. She spent $400 just for a flash drive with pictures from Dad’s wake and funeral service. She said she would have to spend another $400 if she wanted an album. Originally, I think she wanted an album. That’s why I bought her one from Walgreens. I also bought her a Mother’s Day card and included $30 in it. Before my Dad died, he told Mom to spend $30 every month for herself. She usually never goes to a hair salon or nail salon. She never gets big hair cuts. She does color her hair when it shows gray. She buys the drugstore box of hair dyes. This year, one month before Dad died, she went to a Barber Shop and had her hair done. With all the bills, the funeral expenses, etc she paid for, I decided to give $30 to her. I don’t know if she will spend it on herself. But that’s her decision. She once said Dad told her to, but she didn’t seem interested in doing it. She’d rather do what she can herself than spend money on it.
Since May has begun, I have decided to start reading Faithful Until Death by Stephanie Jaye Evans. Has anyone read her stories? What do you think about it? This is the first of the two part series. I read the second part- Safe From Harm last month. That’s why I decided to read this one.
Last week, Facebook on my newsfeed had a page about Faith Box. Clicking on it, I became interested in it immediately. Faith Box, for those who have not have heard of it yet, is just like beauty boxes- ipsy and Birchbox. There may be more, but these are the two I know. Beauty boxes contain skincare and cosmetics. I will write about this in another blog.
Thank you for stopping by and taking your time reading this. Have a wonderful evening. Happy Mother’s Day again to all Mothers out there.
