THE PICKLE

For Mother's Day, I was treated to a mimosa and buffet brunch at the top of "The Pickle." The Pickle, officially called University Tower, is a green, glass building with views of Durham, including Duke and Duke Forest. Mostly you see green all around from this lone tower. I also received two pairs of earrings my daughter picked out at Target, sherbert striped pjs (also from Target), and a card from my 6-year-old daughter that said:

Dear Mommy,

Happy Mother's Day.

I like it when you help me with my homework. I would not be alive without you. I love when you make noodles with olives. Thank you for all the things you do for me.

After we read the card she said, "Mommy, are you crying?"

Wonderful card and message! My 10 year old son actually made my wife hot cocoa and toast and brought it into her to have in bed. He capped it off with a rose on the tray. And he did that without any encouragement. Wow!
