enjoying those EVERYDAY moments : 18/52 – riding the streetcar.
Living in the city, not owning a car (I know, it sounds crazy) and relying solely on our two feet, the subway and streetcars (and buses when we have to) to get us from point A to B – means that every single trip, no matter how boring the destination (yesterday it was to the dentist) it’s always an adventure for them.
Sunday is Mother’s Day, and have to admit that I always feel a bit nervous throwing out the blanketed HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all statement. This is also sorta the reason why I didn’t write a mother’s day specific post, that and lately (to be totally honest) I stink so bad at planning ahead and getting important things like birthday cards, and mother’s day cards (sorry Nana and Oma, they will be late again) done in time. This happy and wonderful “holiday” also makes me feel a bit sad sending love and happiness to a specific group of women, when maybe (even though it of course would be meant with love) might put a little sadness in someone’s heart. So instead of a blanketed statement I will send out a long winded because this day should be a celebration of more then us “Mother’s”: Happy Mother’s Day to all you mom’s, mom’s to be, mom’s to one day be, mom’s struggling to be, grandmas, great grandmas, those mom’s who have lost, and those who have lost mom’s (I hope I included everyone). Happy Mother’s Day to all of you! And if you don’t celebrate at all, a very happy May weekend to you!
