Flowers for a mom

by Papi

Like every girl, I also like getting flowers, with or without an occasion. And I was really touched by my friends bringing me flowers for Katie’s birthday. I remember people bringing flowers for my mother back when I was celebrating my one digit birthdays too and I always considered it a courtesy, simply good manners. Only now I understand though how it was just as much her holiday as it was mine. And I wonder if she still feels the same after all those years. Does it ever get less special to celebrate becoming a mom?
