For the very first time in 4 years, I celebrated Mother's Day in true fashion.
I received my first hand-made gift. A heart-shaped card, fluttery and beautiful, a colourful bead bracelet and a bookmark. When I first saw the bookmark, it says "Happy Mother's Day 2009, Love Lachlan" on one side, clearly written by Lachlan's teacher. Turn it over, there were scribbles, long scribbly blue and green. Lines of love. My heart melted, and I had tears in my eyes.
Oh, the teachers at kindy. They are wonderful, thoughtful creatures. Thank you!
