Mother's Day

Today I tried to make the important women in my life happier by letting Jess sleep late and going to church with my mom.

When I grew up, in Florida, in the Southern Baptist church, it was the tradition on Mother's Day to wear a rose, red if your mother was living, white if she had passed on. So I picked a bud from the front yard, but I was the only one there wearing one.

Is anyone else familiar with this tradition? I actually hate to see it pass, it was an excuse for men to wear flowers :)

Went to the post office the other day, found a small, heavy square wrapped in millions of layers of red tissue, with bilingual labels and no sender's name.

But I know who you are.

Inside, there were secrets.
