This is a picture of my beautiful mother when she was 22 years old. My mom is an amazing person who to this day is hard working and full of fun. She raised four children, had a long career as a registered nurse and continues to be a volunteer with several organizations as well as an active church member. My mom is a talented decorator with an incredible sense of color and style and has always kept a beautiful home.....She is a great cook and loves to entertain....I have always felt loved and supported by her and admire her faith and courage. I do not know what I would do with out my mom....
These flox I picked from my mother in law's garden this afternoon. The vase I purchased from the annual sale at the school across the street this morning.....Sorry you missed it mom......50 cents!
Here is a photograph of my lovely mother in-law when she was a young mother.....My husband and I have lived next door to her and my father in-law all our married lives.....She too is a lot of fun.... Mom was a school teacher for many years and is a quilter and an artist. I could not have asked for a better mother in-law. My Mom and my Mom in-law are close friends.....and they were friends even before my husband and I were married...(that's a story for another time).
These grape hyacinths are from my mother in law's garden....
This picture was taken in March at the Webster Flea Market in Florida......both my Mom and Mom in-law came with me that day...... My Mom is 81 years young and my mother in-law is 87! Aren't they adorable? They were such troopers as I was determined to search every aisle .... we had a lot of fun together as we always do.
These double french lilacs were my mothers and when she moved to Florida we transplanted them to my mother in-law's back yard. Beautiful blossoms this year!
Mom's dogwoods in our yard .....finally a day without rain! Not many people are blessed with both a mother and a mother in-law as special as mine!
Happy Mother's Day dear Moms , I hope you have fun together today! And Happy Mother's day to all the mothers and friends that may read this post!
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
