Mother's Day - 2011


My 'local' children, Elder Daughter, Fantastic Son, Gardening Daughter and their respective spouses/families gathered today in Elder Daughter's home to treat me to a Mother's Day lunch. Delicious! All the good, home-made sorts of stuff that I really like, including strawberry shortcake.

Youngest Daughter, who lives in Nebraska, sent flowers yesterday (photo above -- I wish there were smell-a-vision, they have a wonderful, house-filling fragrance) and I had a good, long telephone conversation with her.

Having missed church on Easter Sunday and the following Sunday due to illness, it was good to be back in church this morning.  Spending the afternoon with most of my children was also a blessing.

I hope you had a wonderful day, also.

Tomorrow is also a day.

Sounds like the perfect day. After what you have been thru lately, I'm sure it was all the more special.

Although not a MOM myself except to my animals, Mother's are very, very special people. They cannot be honored enough.

Hope you are feeling better
