Happy Mother's Day to all of you and your lovely wives/moms/sisters! I will raise a glass of Mimosa (maybe a bloody mary) this morning to celebrate all of us and those we love!

Tony-We will be thinking of you and your mom! I hear the "firsts" are always the hardest. I hope on this first Mother's Day without her, you can do something special to celebrate her. Even though you are so great about living every day of your life as a celebration. I would say plant something...but I don't think it would last in your weather. tongue Anyways, thinking of you and will say a prayer for her in church this morning!

Cheers to the amazing Mothers in our lives!!!
God Bless!

Yes, yes yes. We are blessed with some great moms here. Wonderful ladies. They are all moms to us guys here. Thanks for the all of your love and caring.

A little note. Johnnie and I went to see Menopause the musical Saturday. 1000 ladies and 6 guys in the crowd. I have never laughed so much in my whole life. Having been on hormones for several years, I felt that I could relate. I even had a hot flash during the show. If you get a chance, go see this show. It is well worth it.

Love to all of our Mothers and special Mothers here at Healing Well.
