Mother's Day in Review (the Grand Mother)
We had a lovely Mother's Day lunch at Playa Azul in Santa Barbara. Sadly, we didn't get a photo of the whole group, which included my sweet parents and Annie. But here we have 8 Bordens--the 6 of us plus Grandpa and Byron's sister, Bev.
And here we have my mom, (aka "mum" since she's Canadian.)
I was thinking about how great my mom is the other day. As is the habit of some of us Bordens, Jesse and Trevor were a bit behind schedule on getting the airline tickets they need for Washington last week. Their mom, ( that's me) offered to help.
Soon I got stressed out about the tickets. That's when the Big Kahuna stepped in. (That would be Mum.) She found that they had enough miles to get cheap tickets to Seattle and she secured those tickets lickety split.
I thought about that little chain of offspring that kept turning to their moms and how the Top Mom saved the day with great tickets. And I thought about the term "Grandmother." She's the GRAND MOTHER because she's the best mom. She pretty much rocks the whole wide world ;-)
