Mother’s Day Ritual

Every year my whole family goes to church together on Mother’s Day and then we all gather at her house for a big dinner. That is important to her and that is not too much to ask of your kids. So we do that and look forward to being together like back when we were kids. Each kid has his own place to sit at the dinner table – it is the same every year and never changes.

The dinner menu is the same every year, too. My mother loves Honeybaked hams, so we all pitch in and buy her a big ham, then each of us brings some side dishes and desserts. I plan on bringing macaroni and cheese for the side dish and a cherry pie for dessert.
