Mother's Day 2012

I did not plan to celebrate Mother's day, I told the husband the same thing too. I grew up in China, it is not really in our culture to celebrate Mother's day or Valentine's day, these are western holidays. And further more I believe Mother's day is more for children to show appreciation to their mothers, not for husband to celebrate with wife. The latter can be done in many other occasions such as my birthday and our anniversary. Kah Yen is still too young to understand what Mother's day is, so I guess we will just let this day pass quietly like a normal day.

That being said, I am still very happy when I received these two books from my husband. No flowers, no facial or spa package, no expensive meals or any other elaborate gifts. My husband knows I won't be too excited about all these because I am not a gift person. BUT, I am always excited about new books.

And what gifts can be better for Mother's day than two books that will help me to be a better person and a better mother?
