Orthodox mamas don't get breakfast in bed on Mother's Day morn, but we do get Liturgy and Holy Communion and Coffee Hour!
While I was out gallivanting yesterday, Father John took the boys to buy a huge vibrant bouquet of blooms and three beautiful corsages for the matushki in our parish (we have two priests' wives and one deacon's wife) and the three of us were so pleased! I loved wearing mine so much and now it is on my bedside table so that I can enjoy it as long as possible.
I dug out my great-grandmother's pink depression glass platter from the back of the china cabinet to set my beautiful berry cheesecake on. It was a feast for the eyes and for our tummies. Plus, there's more for tomorrow!
