Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day!

Tomorrow is a special day here as we celebrate motherhood so I wanted to pop in and wish you all Happy Mother's Day.
This is a beautiful little book celebrating the joys of motherhood-it is full of lovely quotes and poems.

I hope you will enjoy your day.

The mother and baby ornament by Global is a treasured gift from my husband celebrating the birth of one of our children.

I love mother and baby pictures and the one above is one I especially love of our youngest daughter and her daughter Lila (a few years ago).
Where did the time go??? This is a picture of me with our seventh child when he was a wee one-I miss those days!!!

Mother's Day is one of my favorite days of the year- as my children " rise up and call me blessed" - right kiddos???

I am looking forward to a family brunch at our house tomorrow and it is supposed to be warm and sunny-yeah!

Laurie at Heaven's Walk wrote the most beautiful touching story on her blog and I know you will enjoy taking a few minutes to check it out. Laurie has a real gift with words and her whole blog is beautiful!

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day, Carolyn. The photos of your daughter with her daughter are so lovely and I love the photos of you with your seventh child. Time just seems to evaporate, doesn't it!?! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and a very Happy Mother's Day.

How nice to see those pictures of you and your son. And seventh??? Oh my, I thought it was enough with two, lol. Beautiful memories and I understand you, I miss those days too.
That book seems wonderful. Wonder if it's able to get here in Sweden too?!

Hope you have a lovely Sunday.
