Mother's Day

I think it was Anne Lamott who said there are really only two kinds of prayers: “Help me! Help me! Help me!” and “Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!” Thanks to my wonderful husband and sweet sons, I had a perfect Mother’s Day, and it’s definitely a triple-thank you-prayer kind of day.

Breakfast in bed with

flowers on the tray. Homemade

Mother’s Day cards and

strong coffee. The Sunday Times.

A win at tennis.

Someone strumming Led Zeppelin

on the back court in

between sets. Brunch at Sapphire.

Bellinis. Molten

chocolate something-or-other.

A nap.The peaceful hum of

home and family.
