Recently I have participated in a promotion by Restaurant.com and received a gift certificate from them to support my blog efforts. Now that the Mother’s Day is coming up, I decided to share this gift card with my readers! I cannot give back enough to all the wonderful people who come to read my blog! I hope to make it interesting and exciting for everyone reading and visiting, and stick around for great deals that will be coming in the next few weeks! I have a lot of interesting projects and stories to read coming up!
In this post I wanted to write about my family a bit. We used to have a very closely knit family I grew up in, and one thing we have always enjoyed doing as a family was sharing food together. We rarely went out regularly, unless travelling away from home, but on those rare occasions that we did, it was always very memorable! I remember going out with my grandmother every end of school year to celebrate, and then going out on our vacation trips – every day was a new restaurant with exciting new dishes to try!
I hope that one of my winners will be able to take their mother out with this certificate, and enjoy a festive meal together! I cannot do this as my mother lives far away, and my grandmother, who was almost a mother to me, in a way, is no longer living. I do enjoy lots of meals with my kids and my husband, and I hope that I will be treated with a meal out this coming Mother’s Day as well. We usually go out for lunch on Mother’s Day, and have a nice meal at home in the evening, but we’ll see how this year will turn out! I am sure my kids will also bring me breakfast in bed!
I receive messages from my readers sometimes that life is not treating them that well right at this moment. When I open my Facebook, a lot of the times I see people with prayer requests due to medical emergencies or sudden troubles. I wish I could do something! I can hope, and pray, but I find it hard to be able to really help. I want this blog to be an inspiration! I hope that when you read it, it makes your day a little bit better. Every time I open the news I get overwhelmed. Every time I read something horrific happening I wonder – is there anything I can do at all? And it is hard to do as I am naturally a pessimistic person, but I do want to help and make someone’s life just a little bit better. It is also hard to achieve when I have to work so hard simply to cover the costs of blogging, but I am honestly trying my best! I volunteer a lot, as much as I can with a baby that I am taking care of, and I try to give back to the community, no matter what hard times I face, and how hard it is. I hope that I can bring some inspiration into your lives, and give you some new strength to keep going! Please, do let me know in the comments about your plans for this Mother’s Day, and I hope that you will enjoy it! We, mothers all over the world, deserve it!
