"For many years, my husband and I hosted brunch on Mother's Day to celebrate our mothers and the birth of our twins. The table was set with the good china and fancy tableware. Each woman had a tiny vase with sprigs of violets, bleeding hearts, and lily of the valley freshly picked from the yard. While we all see things differently, the beauty and the structure of nature is always there. '(heart) Mom' means both 'I love Mom' and 'Love, Mom.' "
