Happy Mother's Day!

Posted May 8, 2011

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! I hope your day is full of love and happiness!

All I asked for was to be able to sleep in and I got my wish! Then my 9 year old showered me with all sorts of homemade gifts, which was wonderful! Now I am headed to the backyard to work in the garden and then hubby is grilling chicken for dinner. Such a nice day with the family! I hope you are all having a lovely day as well.

Here's to all the moms out there and those who are no longer with us.  Thanks for all you do and have done!

    Your pedi sounds fabulous, pirategirl. And you are so right about our moms being gone - it stinks just as much as last year. I hope your memories of her continue to make you smile.

    labs - thank you. That was really sweet. My mom was such an amazing woman and a tremendous grandmother. Absolutely the very best grandma my girls could have ever had.

    We have never met but I really appreciate all you do to help on this website.
    Your Mom did a tremendous job as a Mother.
    Thanks and Happy Mother's Day

    Happy Mother's Day to you, Faye! I had a pedi today with all the bells and whistles! I thought about you today. This is my third Mother's Day without my Mama and it pretty much stinks just as bad as the first one. I have spent a lot of the day lost in my own memories of her that make me smile!

    Thanks ladies. You are all so kind.

    Jenn - that picture is from a couple years before she got sick when we traveled to Miami together for a family function. Good times. And I am sure your mom is very proud of all you have accomplished as well, my friend - and what you will be accomplishing this summer! :-)

    Total - 6:30 am is sleeping in?? Yikes!

    I hope those burgers were yummy, marybeth! We ended up doing some work on the house we recently moved out of until 8 tonight so we will be grilling that chicken tomorrow. It will be very well marinated! LOL

    Faye, that's an awesome pic of your Mom, and she looks just like I remember her. She would be so proud of you and what you've accomplished....

    Happy Mother's Day to you as well Faye...and every mom out there. I was able to sleep in too =) Was up at 6:30am. Had a wonderful day!

    Happy Mother's Day Faye! The greatest evidence of a rich relationship is the depth of loss experienced when it's gone. What an encouragement to hear about yours and your mother's. Be blessed!

    Happy Mothers Day Faye and all ;) Our days were quite similiar ... except that sleep part! I managed to get a very nice section of my flower garden completed and hubby grilled burgers. I too have some very lovely handmade gifts from my little loves!
