Mother’s Day

Austin 5Austin 6 I went to my one son’s home for a cook-out. It was nice to be there instead of here. I had a real nice time. I chatted with my daughter-in-law and son and got to visit with the grandkids.

They have 2 dogs, Rufus and Rudy. One is a terrier, the other is a Bassett hound. The weather has rained off and on with the sun returning quick, but while the grill was cooking, the sun remained out.

She fixed brats, burgers and hotdogs. I had taken deviled eggs and Pistachio fluff. There was cottage cheese and chips. No one walked away from the table hungry, not even the begging dogs.

I took some photos of my grandkids. I have 11 all together. I could be wrong, but I think I am right. The ones you see here are brothers.

I had a wonderful Mother’s Day. Last evening my other daughter-in-law took me out to AppleBees for supper. I was able to visit with her and her 3 kids. Today, I didn’t have to cook and also received an indoor planted flower, and my daughter from down in KY called me too and we had a nice chat. Her hubby was preparing a surprise supper in her honor as a mother. What ever is was, I am sure it was great. He is a fabulous cook.

Here are some photos of all my grandkids. I am one lucky lady. I have 3 wonderful kids and awesome grandkids!

A mother’s whisper

Of words I love you

The touch of healing

When I was feeling blue


Shared laughter

Just the two of us

Will always remain

Within my heart, it must


When I saw you tired

When you wept alone

I was old enough to know

Why your heart no longer shone


God said it was your time

I heard him whisper to me

I hurried and packed my memories

For I knew you wouldn’t be seen


Never a day goes by

When I don’t think of you

I pull out all my memories

And try not to be too  blue


I look up at the stars

I see them twinkle bright

There is one especially pretty

It is the brightest light


So today I want to tell you

Happy Mother’s Day

I’m waving at you mommy

Can you come down and play?
