Happy Mother's Day

For those of you fortunate enough to be a Mother, I hope your day is filled with happiness and love of your family.

Of course I think Heidi, Boots and Pinky think of me as their Mommy?

I luckily will spend the day with my very dear Mother in law. My husband is one of 8, so we are going over and make her a gourmet breakfast......time to have her all to ourselves before everyone else shows up!

But of course this day makes me miss my Mom.
Her Iris's are blooming

She had a large bed of Iris's, outside her backdoor. I was able to bring some home with me, a little part of my Mom by my front door. They are ready to burst out.

Wish you were here so we could sit outside and visit.

This was one of her Mother's Day presents one year.  A Lenox Iris pitcher, it always sat on her dining room hutch, she loved it like she loved Iris's.

Soon, I can fill it with real flowers that belonged to you Mom.

So for those of you that still have your Mother's, please hold them dear and tell them you love them.

I just know I was blessed because I did and still have the best Mother in the world.

Happy Mother's Day

Those irises are such a beautiful, living tribute to your Mom. I hope you can fill that lovely pitcher of hers very soon!

Your mother was beautiful, just like you are. Love her iris and pitcher. There's no flower more beautiful and a wonderful way to remember her.
Have a wonderful day, sweetie!

Beautiful Irises and what a sweet way to remember your Mother. I am lucky to have my Mom still here on earth and I treasure her! I think fur babies do make us Moms also! Happy Mother's Day.

Hi Ann! I wish that I were with you so that I could give you a big hug! So I'm just sending one to you through the miracle of modern technology. Your Mom did a great job raising such a loving daughter.

Lots of love and hugs,
Susan and Bentley
