We all have one...

... so we should all celebrate!  I'm talking about mothers! 

Happy Mother's Day to my beautiful, patient, loving, smart, generous, sacrificing, fun, mother!

I will never be able to re-pay her for all she has done and still does for me! 
I love you, Mom!

Happy Mother's Day also to my fun, compassionate, hard-working mother-in-law! 

 I appreciate the fact she raised such a wonderful son and treats me as though I am her daughter.   Just a story about her:
One day, when I had 4 small children, she said to me, ""Your kids look just like 'Gs' kids!"  Then, as if lost in thought, she shuddered, "Oooohhh, those kids are ugly!"

I wonder what she meant by that!  
I love you too, Mom!

Happy Mother's Day to all of you!

AWESOME old photos!! LOVE them.

I know that I can always be guaranteed a good laugh when I come to your Blog.

You always have a knack for telling a serious, heartfelt post and then you throw in some funny comment to make us laugh! You have a real talent for that.

What a blessing it is to be a mom and to be able to have one day a year to tribute and treat our moms and special women who influence us greatly with extra love and care.

Your family photo at the bottom is priceless. I bet growing up in your home with your and hubby was SO much fun!!

Hope you're having a wonderful Mother's Day!!

Connie, After reading your mothers day comments,I feel I have to tell you how fortunate I am to have such an angel for a daughter. You are so loving and giving & always have been. Yesterday was so special, I am so blessed to have 3beautiful children, 18 wonderful grandchildren & almost 20 adorable great grandchildren.
Yesterday in church the mothers all received a placque which read,
"Blessings brighten when you Count them." Isn`t that the truth? You & your family & the others in our family are such a blessing to us.
Love you, Mom
