Happy Mother's Day


Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,
Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
But only one mother the wide world over.

~ George Cooper

My dear Mother, when she was a little girl.

It is days like today that we realize how important family really is. Today I felt so incredibly loved by my two sweet children. Lovely cards and presents, breakfast cooked by my Son, with help from Father, was such a wonderful way to start my day.
There is no greater love, than the love of a Mother and child.
Thank you, to my dear family.

To all the Mothers, fur baby Mums, and even if you are not a Mother, out there ~ Happy Mothers day and I hope that you can celebrate today.


Wishing my dear friends a happy weekend
Hugs
Carolyn

  22. Oh what a lovely old photo. I love those old pictures very much. Almost in every picture anyone doesn't smile. It must have been very exciting!
    I've got two books where a local photographer (deceased) has published stories and photos from my hometown. Very interesting! I found a picture where my dad was 17-18 years old over sixty years ago. Your photo must be older than that?
    Happy new week!

  28. I hope you had a lovely day yesterday, Carolyn.
    What a wonderful old photo. I love them and cherish each and every one I have. It's such fun when blogger friends share them with us.
    While I wasn't able to share my day with my three, I got flowers, cards and phone calls. And that made a perfect day!

  29. Hi my sweet friend...I tried to send you an e-mail twice but they both came back to me. Do you have a new address?

    I just wanted to thank you sooooo much for the sweet little gifts you sent my way...pure JOY! You are so thoughtful in everyway...really you are such a blessing to me.

    I will put them to good use...I so needed another little journal and that card holder is so sweet.

    Thank you so much...you really made my day. xoxoxo

    Hugs and love to one of the sweetest people I know... xoxoxoxo
