I’m blessed to have the world’s best mom. Okay, I know, I’m a bit biased. She’s pretty awesome, number one in my book.
When I think about Mom my heart is filled with joy. I fondly remember baking and cooking in my mom’s kitchen- flour all over the floor and pans scattered. I think about the long nights Mom spent in my room, laying next to me, because I was just too afraid to face the scary, dark room alone. Then there are the little things, which now as a mom I realize demanded much of Mom’s time, but she never spoke a word or complained. The laundry piles, dishes, homemade dinners, brown-bag lunches… all thankless jobs performed with a tender heart of motherly love.
Now, as an adult and mother I reflect back on my childhood, grateful for the years I spent under Mom’s love and protection. That love and protection continues today, but takes a different shape. Today, Mom is my number one fan- rooting for me when times are hard or I just need a friend, always present to share in life’s joys and triumphs.
I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Mom than with a homemade treat made with a dose of love and pinch of appreciation. So, today, I’m baking a rich chocolate cake made with grain-free flours, and topped with a heavenly dairy-free fudge icing. It’s delicious, friends. Head over to The Nourishing Home for this simple, made-with-love grain-free chocolate cake recipe.
Tell me all about your mom in the comment section below. What made-with-love treat will you be making this weekend?
Happy Mom’s Day!
