Happy Mother's Day

Pinterest

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.  ~Washington Irving



My mother's favorite flower- calla lily


Happy Mother's Day to all the great moms in Blogland.  Hope you have a wonderful day with those you love, and doing what you want to do, even if it is just relaxing around the house.  It is your day.

  6. I love that quote by Washington Irving. I had never seen that. (He was my grandmother's favorite author. My dad, much to his embarrassment growing up, was middle named after him. (The Irving part... He always hated it.)

  19. That is a wonderful quote and so true too.
    The calla lily is such a beautiful and elegant flower. Mine are just starting to pop out of the ground. I look forward to seeing them bloom every year. This year I will think of you and your mother when they do. My mom's favorite flowers were daisies, so I think of her when they bloom. :).
