Yesterday was Egyptian Mother's Day. My older daughter surprised me with two lovely cards: One was a very glittery card that promised massages and house cleaning services and the other was written in Arabic (she wrote it herself in Arabic class). My husband bought me a lovely alabaster candle holder. Then the whole family went out for Korean food at my favorite restaurant. It was a lovely evening.
This best part is that this year I get to celebrate my awesomeness as a mother twice! Actually if I play my cards right and travel around a bit I could celebrate Mother's Day up to 31 days of the year. I guess my next stop is Slovenia which celebrates Mother's Day on March 25th. You can find a calendar of Mother's Day celebrations on Wikipedia if like me you want to milk this holiday for all it is worth.
