Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful mothers. I think you/we have the most important job on earth.

This is my sweet Mother taken before she was married.

As always thinking of Mom brings tears to my eyes. I still miss her. She was my staunchest supporter and thought I could do no wrong and could do anything! I had a friend tell me once after loosing her Mother that is was the loneliest you would ever feel.....she was right.

Today we will be having DH's folks out for dinner. I am planning a regualr roast beef dinner of meat, potatoes and carrots with green beans on the side. I will make my refrigerator rolls (skipping the refrigerator step) and pecan pie for dessert. It is my MIL's favorite dessert.

  1. I miss my mother every day. She passed away in 1977 at the age of 76. She and your mother are probably in heaven swapping stories about the good old days.

    Have a great day.

  2. Lovely picture of your mom.

    I'm so happy that you had a mom like that. I really envy that. Mother's Day is a little bittersweet for me. I don't know which is worse, having a wonderful mother and losing her or never being able to have a good relationship with your mother at all. I think the first, it makes for better memories!

    Sounds like you are going to have a really fun day. Hugs!

  3. A beautiful lady who raised an exceptional daughter who CAN do anything she puts her mind to! Wishing you a wonderful Mothers Day Glenda...

  4. Neat pic of your mother. My mother died in 2002 and so many things this time of year bring back happy memories as she loved gardening. She loved impatiens and begonias and always had pots of begonias around a tree in her front yard-beautiful. She was a great cook, seamstress and Mother!

    Enjoy your day-our two daughters called and will be coming by later with food!

  5. Happy Mother's Day! Enjoy your meal with the in-laws.

  6. No wonder you are a walking miracle! That explains it, Glenda! Happy Mother's Day...:)JP
