Hi Everyone!
I wanna wish all the Moms here at HW a very Happy Mother's Day.
I plan on having my family over for a barbeque Sunday.
It is the first time I have done anything for Mother's Day since my Mom passed away 6 years.
It feels bittersweet, but I know she will be here in spirit celebrating with us!
Hope you enjoy Mother's Day with your family and friends!
What is a Mother?

    A Mother has so many things to do,
    From washing, ironing, cleaning to tying a shoe.
    She scrubs, she mends, she cooks and sews,
    She bathes the children and washes their clothes.
    When they forget to wash their faces clean,
    And their clothes are the muddiest you've ever seen,
    Who repairs the clothes and scrubs them like new?
    Of course, that is what a Mother will do.

    Who becomes the doctor or the nurse when they are ill,
    Applying a bandage or giving them a pill?
    Who becomes a teacher when a child has homework?
    She must never her duty shirk.
    Who becomes a detective to find a toy or a book?
    For missing things she must look and look?
    Who becomes a listner to every heartache,
    To every accompolishment that a child makes?
    Who scolds their children when they are naughty,
    Or remind them of God when they are to haughty?
    Who tends her family with love and patience, too?
    Of course that is what a Mother will do.

Mary Sunshine,

Mother's Day is a wonderful day and I wish all the Mothers a very Hapy Day. 
It is good that you are having the dinner at your home.  I always remember my Mother on Mother's Day too.  My parents have been gone for a long time.  I do have a wonderful MIL and daughter and daughter-in-laws that I am always sure to honor too as they have my grandchildren and they are all great Moms.

I loved the poem.  Thank you for sharing.
Happy Mother's Day to you sweet Mary.

Happy Mother's Day, all!

I'm off to celebrate combined Mother's Day and my mom's birthday with the whole family on Sunday. I'm very lucky to still have both my parents around. Hope all the rest of you have a blessed day!

Mother's Day is here and I am hoping that every Mom out there has been honored today.  I have been reminding myself I am a good Mom and hey it's my day so just be in the moment.

I went and played with the puppies at my daughters........how fun.


Hugs to all
