Happy special Mother's day

A special time of celebration to all Mother's and the influence they have on their children to make them who they are.
It is probably one of the hardest jobs, but so rewarding.
I am so thankful to my dear Mother, for all the love, kindness, patience, strength, always caring  and all she has taught me.


When my kids were growing up, I loved to get their sweet little cards, handmade gifts and the precious drawings. Breakfast in  bed was so sweet with a tray set and felt like such a lucky Mother.
I am so proud of the beautiful adults my two have become and feel so blessed.

I will be leaving for a short break away, my DH is taking me to Surfers Paradise in Australia to celebrate a birthday. So I will be taking a little blog break.

Wishing you all a very happy weekend
Hugs
Carolyn

  3. What a lovely post for Mothers Day. We have a different Mothers Day in the United Kingdom, ours was in March and is always Mothering Sunday (the 4th Sunday of Lent.) I noticed it is Mothers Day in America too.

    Hope you had a nice day and also enjoy your break away.

  16. Hi Carolyn,
    Wishing you the best Mother's Day. Your dear mother must be a very special lady because she raised a wonderful daughter in you. You surely learned much from her.

    Enjoy your time away with your hubby. Is it your birthday? If so, best wishes and have a grand time.

    Love and blessings to you.

  46. Carolyn, I hope you had a nice Mothers Day. I used to love getting breakfast in bed when my kids were little. Have a nice trip. My husband and son are surfers, so do try to watch some of the surfers there as they catch their perfect wave. They are amazing.
