I am suffering with a horrible cold this Mother's Day weekend. My mom always knew what to do to make me feel better! I love you, Mom.
Sorry about your cold Barb - that is no fun at all. I remember when I was a teenager and had a horrible cold my Mom went out and brought me home Chinese Take Out -- ever since when I am suffering with a cold I crave Chinese food! The hot and sour soup really did make me feel better!
Mother's Day can be bittersweet for sure. I am grateful and happy to be a Mom to my grown kids.My dear Mother has Alzheimer's, and she's not able to speak. I sure miss the lady she used to be.This photo of your beautiful Mom and sister is absolutely precious.(A good reminder to all of us to get in the picture :-)Bless you, Donna - and thank you for your blog and the beauty you share.
I'm sorry about your mother, Susan. That must be so difficult. Give her a big hug and offer up a prayer.
thanks Robin - I surely do, hugs when I am up in Alaska - and the prayers continue even when I'm not.
Oh Susan. I didn't know. Remembering you and your Mom today -- and trusting that The Lord gives the measure of grace we need at just the right time. Much love, Swissy Missy!!
Susan, your mother certainly did a wonderful job raising you as you are always so very kind and encouraging to others. Blessings to you both. (((hugs)))Mary Z
thanks so much my QL friends -- I appreciate your encouraging words on this day especially -- and the virtual hug :-)
Just got here to see the lovely blog by Donna and read your comment Susan. Sending you both hugs and prayers and love, jep
Thanks jep - I hope this Mother's Day is a special one for you.
Late to the party, but offering up thanks for your mother, as she was and as she is. It is such a difficult road, Alzheimer's.Blessings on you and yours,Di
Di, thank you. I am sure you were especially missing your Mom yesterday - blessings to you too
I love these so much. :)
Beautiful. Happy Mother's Day, Donna.
sending hugs and prayers your way,Donna. Happy Mother's Day!
Happy Mother's Day to you :-)While I find the advertising and saccharine aspects of Mother's Day rather jarring, it is nice to have a day especially to remember my mum.
I hope you had a lovely day, dear Donna. :)
Is that you or a sister in the pic with Esther, Donna? Your mom really was gorgeous. Amazing!Di
I am so sorry that your Mom is not here to celebrate with you. I know you loved her very much. And she loved you. I am thankful for my mom. When I was hugging her goodbye last night I cried. I don't want time to keep marching on because I know the ones I love best will be taken from me. She told me to stop being silly.
Donna--you always post the best quotes! Love Walt. I may need that one framed. Happy Mother's Day to the Mutha of all Muthas! Love ya all the way to Wisconsin and back ;)
Hello. So nice to see you. Would you like to leave a comment? Be very kind.
