After I broke down the table and put away the dishes I put some things on the dining table from Mother's Day.
This put a smile on my face- the inside is a pop up so as you open it the guy is hiding in the cart but then moves up to offer a kiss!
A sweet card from son and daughter in-law. They live 2400 miles away so our visits are too far and few. We have a love for cats in common and they know how I love flowers so this card is a perfect sentiment! We'll catch up in June when we see them again!
Sweet daughter came in with this giant card which I adore. Love the big bird cage and of course the sentiment.
She also gifted me with these lovely carnations and a gift card from a favorite garden store!
You know how long that gift card will last!
I've kept this up all week- still enjoying the memories.
This morning I read a post from Just Jan blog as seen "here"
She included several quotes about mothers that touched my heart. I selected one to include in my post.
The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never.
A mother is something absolutely new. - Rajneesh
I'm watching this little mom out my living room window. She's staying tight on the nest so we should see some little ones soon.
We are planning on spreading landscape mulch this weekend. Not much fun but rewarding in the end. It's going to be very cool this weekend but that's okay since we have to work it won't be hot or sticky!
Thanks for visiting and sharing my lingering Mother's Day memories.
Have a great weekend!
