Sadly I no longer get to celebrate Mother’s Day. I have no children of my own and my mother passed away a few years ago. Having said that, I have fond memories of the Mother’s Days we celebrated in the past. I can remember as a child picking out cards with raised sachets set in the cover (all the vogue in those days), and going with my father to purchase her favorite perfume Evening in Paris. Later on as a young adult, I remember celebrating by going out to dinner; my mother, father, sister and me.
