Happy Mother's Day


     A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. ~Washington Irving

As I read this quote, it reminded me of the relationship you had with your mother. I know that tomorrow there will be sadness, but from what I've grown to know about you and your family, I also know there will be much love and joy.

Oh, and food, I know the food will fantastic whether you dine in or out!

Hugs to you sweet friend, Happy Mother's Day!

Good Morning Sue Sweetie...
I just had to pop over here today and give you BIG, BIG hugs. I hope you have opened your box today and smiled. I know how much you miss her sweet friend. I know she is right there hugging you as well.

I hope you have a gorgeous day today. Happy Mother's Day. Do you have plans? Have you set another one of your gorgeous tables? Or is DH taking you out today? I can feel the love there Sue.

Hugs, hugs and more hugs to you. I SO wish we were together and sharing laughter and dinner. I love you sweet friend. Always connected, many hugs and much love, Sherry

Just popping by to wish you a very Happy Mothers Day, Sue! I know you're enjoying those grandkidlets & I think your latest fruit & scones tablescape was one of the smartest ones yet!! Don't waste a minute of time spent with them on fussing over place settings.

Hugs,
Rett

Such a mixed bag, this day..I miss Dad so much this day also and I feel for so many Mom's who have so many losses to remember this day...and I miss my kids and just like with my Mom I don't get to see them on this day because of thousands of miles, perhaps for the rest of my life...

Yet the joy I felt talking to them today and receiving such beautiful letters. balances out the day. Like I said mixed bag...

Glad to see you were all together, and I'm sorry to read of your FIL's troubles. As women of "a certain age" it seems this is an all too frequent occurrence in our current stage of life.

I should have wished you a Happy Mother's Day - will you take a belated wish instead?

I hope you were spoiled on that day. Moms deserve that. :)
