Happy Mother's Day

Whether you call her mum, mom, mama or ma. . . I wish a Happy Mother's Day to all of my friends and family in blog land.

Down through the years
she has wiped away many a tears.
She's cooked, cleaned and shoo-ed away our fears.

My grandma holding my mom.

She provides hugs and kisses
and outstretched arms to cuddle in.
She provides wisdom. . .
and she has eyes in the back of her head!

Mom and her three little girls!
(I'm the baby)

There's no love like a mother's love with
a heart filled with patience and forgiving.

by Andrew and Charley.

Alabama football coach Bear Bryant used to remind his players. "Be sure to call your mom." Then he added wistfully, "I wish I could call mine."



  1. Oh Janet! That is the best...wish I would have thought of that idea...but
    I don't have those pictures of Mom...
    I wish I could tell her happy mother's day again...I miss her so, so much...our mom was the best mom.

  2. Happy Mother's Day Janet! Our Mom is gone, but we remember her everyday and know we will join her one day in heaven. xxoo

  5. Happy Mother's Day, Janet! Lovely photos of your family.

    I have the same iris as in your photo--is this one of your flowers? It's beautiful. I'm planning an iris post sometime this week. Funny how we think alike!

  6. You had a wonderful Mom and so did I. I am still grieving for my Mom. I wonder will the pain of missing her ever go away. Thank God, I know she is in Heaven, though. What wonderful pictures!
