Mother's day

Happy Mother's Day
My Mom went home to 
Heaven in September.
The firsts are hard.
This is the first Mother's Day without my Mom.

But, I am going to honor her today by 
enjoying my own family.
That is what she would 

Enjoy your day.
Give Your Mom a Hug!

Oh dear friend, the first is always the most difficult. Knowing that she is smiling down upon you, on this day when you honor her in this tender way, will be a healing balm to your heart.
So, YES, enJOY this Mothers Day with your SWEET, SWEET babies and count the MANY blessings He has showered upon you...LOVE & HUGS..Rosie

My mother has been gone for 8 Mother's Days now and it still takes a great deal of grace to make it through this day without her near me. I love her so much! May your heart receive comfort and may your courage carry you on days like this. Thank you for sharing the photo of your beautiful mother!
