Mothers Day

At the gallery today customers were looking for gifts for moms. The first shoppers were two precious little girls, ages six and four, with their dad. The dad went patiently all through the store trying to involve both girls in the choice. The little one wanted to buy something purple, her favorite color. The older one was more selective, but was often vetoed by sister (on general principle, I suspect). This continued until the girls were obviously losing interest. I stepped in with a new suggestion, something that they both agreed on, and we proceeded to the cash register. The cute four-year-old became extremely attentive while I wrote up the sale and wrapped the little box because she was to carry the bag home. And she did!

Mothers Day brings us all together with the common bond of childhood. Enjoy it.
