Mother’s Day Gift Guide: 2013

May 06, 2013

Mother's Day is upon us this Sunday, May 12thand if you're still wondering what to get your mom, aunt, or grandmother, Kidzworld have rounded up a list of suggestions that will help make her smile. You don't have to spend a lot of money to make her day special, from serving her breakfast in bed to making a cool scrapbook of fun photos and memories, it's definitely the thought that counts!

 

Celebrated on the second Sunday of every May, Mother's Day is not just a Hallmark holiday, it's a celebration of mothers, motherhood and maternal bonds established by a woman named Anna Jarvis first in 1908. She then campaigned to make it a national holiday and succeeded - it was declared a public holiday in the United States on May 9th, 1914.

Ingredients

4 eggs

1 cup half and half

2 tsp sugar

8 slices of regular white bread

1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

2 tbsp butter

Instructions:

1. Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees F

2. Beat eggs thoroughly. Whisk sugar, half and half and vanilla.

3. Pour the mixture into a shallow glass dish about an inch deep.

4. Heat your griddle or pan to medium-low and melt the butter into it.

5. Soak a couple of slices of bread (only as many as your pan can hold at once) and count to ten. Flip over and repeat.

6. Carefully remove the soaked slices letting any excess liquid drain out. Transfer the bread to the griddle. Flip it over and grill until both sides are golden brown.

7. Serve French toast right away with maple syrup and some sliced strawberries, blueberries or raspberries on the side.  Voila!

No one knows your mom better than you so  whether you treat her to a pampering beauty treatment, bake her some cookies, or get her some gardening tools, she's sure to love it because it comes from you!

I'm drowning in my own sorrow, I feel trapped in this dark place, Hoping for a better day tomorrow, I just need time and space, Or is it too late? My happiness has already been replaced, Now my heart is out for debate, Does anyone see ## ####? For gods sake, When you look in my eyes all you see is rain, It's my loss and Satans gain, Why am I letting him win? I'm not the type to ever sin! I'm breaking down, It's to late to turn this around, But what more am I really needing? I have friends and family that love me And in school my education is succeeding, It's so dark why can't I see? This depression is taking over me, This is a horrible sight, Is it all in my head? Taking medication every night, I can't sleep rolling around In my bed, "I can't take this I'm done fighting myself"  is what I said. This chemical imbalance in my head caused by fighting with oneself is taking over my health, Have I truly givin up? Playing this role is tough, Being happy I have learned to pretend, But faking a smile everyday is not enough, I try to think positive, But things pile up on me and become to rough, The story of my life is this the end? Stomach tied in knots, eyes bottled up, Now depression is my new best friend, I feel like I've been driving on the same road for days, and finally hit a dead end, I've never done anything to hurt anyone, this isn't fair, Someone help me is anyone there?!? I'm dying for help, Where is the warmth and light? These things to me are unfelt, There it is, I see the light, Standing here I sigh, As it comes towards me it's so bright, it's shining in my eyes and BAMM!  God has saved me once again, I get a second chance , For love and romance, My life is renewed, I get to start fresh start new, Now i can do things I never got to do, And its All thanks to you, My guardian angel sent from above, Here to guide me with all of your endless love, You were by my side this whole time. And guided me through , For that matter, Now and forever, I will always love you
