Delectable Desserts and other Sweet Treats for Mom

Mother's Day is almost here and being a Mom myself, I always look forward to this day! My kids are still quite young  but in collaboration  with their  Dad they always manage to make me feel truly special during this day (not that they don't do so everyday, of course!). While it is right that we honor our Moms for all their sacrifice and love, for me it is also the perfect time to honor and praise God for giving me the chance to become a MOM! 

It is indeed such a privilege to be gifted with such precious lives and while the responsibility is both challenging and tremendous, I will never trade it for anything. It is the most amazing experience any woman could have. When I gave birth to my eldest, William, I suddenly knew the reason why I was born - it was to become a Mom. I felt an extraordinary bond and love for this little one that all of  a sudden I cradled in my arms. Apart from my wedding day,  it is truly one of the best days of my life. Of course, the same goes for my little darling Sophie who is such a ray of sunshine everyday. Because of this, I really wish I could store every little bit of memory that I have with my kids as I cherish each and every one of them. They have indeed grown so fast and though they will still be with me for many more years, Lord-willing, I know it can fly so fast even before I know it. Hence, I resolve (hopefully on a daily basis) to make the most of my time with them.

Now going back to our post, if you're thinking of doing something special for your Mom, why not check out, perhaps even try one or even some of these delectable sweet treats! Am sure, Mom would appreciate the effort and the love that goes into this sweet labor of yours. Enjoy and please give your Mom a hug and a kiss and make sure she feels totally special this day!
