Blueberry Pancakes for Mother’s Day

What a week… I can’t believe that a week ago I buried my mom, and tomorrow it’s Mother’s day. It’s been such a rough week, but I have so many of you to thank for the sweet messages, notes, emails, calls, flowers, comments, lunches, etc. I am trying to pick myself up every day and move forward, and this blog is one great way to push me to do that. I thought I would share a super simple recipe for Blueberry Pancakes for Mother’s Day or any day since my mom always loved Mother’s Day brunches and who doesn’t love pancakes and blueberries?

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the beautiful, wonderful, giving moms out there. For those of you who still have a mom, give her a big hug today! All the best, Alison

  1. My mother died the month before Mother’s Day two years ago. I don’t remember that Mother’s Day. It was a blur, because I was grieving too deeply. My heart goes out to you. I will say a prayer for you. Take care.

  2. My Mom passed away almost a year ago this month. This is our first Mother’s Day without her. I am so sorry about your loss. Many prayers!

  3. I am so so so sorry Alison for what you can only be going through right now…I have no words, other than to say, I am so sorry and I am always here for you if you ever need to chat, vent, cry, a shoulder, I am always here for you.
