in the early morning, my sister went out and brought home a bunch of pretty flowers. right after my mother got up out of bed, we said "happy mother‘s day"! to her and gave her the flowers. my mother was very happy; she smiled and said, ‘how wonderful the flowers look! thank you! also, we told her we were going to do all the housework for our beloved mother, and she could take a rest for a day. in the beginning, we were excited about all the work we can do at home. before long, we found that the housework seemed to be endless, there was cooking and washing, and cleaning to do, and there was shopping to do, too . during the dinner hour, the kitchen seemed so busy. my father was making a salad, my sister was baking a pie for dessert, and i was washing rice and vegetables, and there were many other things to do. finally, the dinner was ready; it was two hours behind the usual schedule. the food was not as delicious as my mother‘s. nevertheless, my mother and father enjoyed it, and felt very proud of their daughter and son.
