Enough sadness for this week, and for the past, and for the world.
My goal in life is to laugh like my mother at 91:
Happy Mother’s Day!
Flowers will help with that. Champagne too.
Happy Mother’s day!
To you and yours also!
We were so lucky to grow up with such a wonderful mother and father, and we are lucky now to still have her. One of my favorite pieces of advice from her is that housework takes a second place to doing something you enjoy. She always followed that rule (as do I). So many summer afternoons she would take us to Rockwell Park or Lake Compounce,, saying “the chores aren’t going anywhere; the dirt will still be here when I am ready to clean.”
I loved those spontaneous trips to the park. And I love a clean house, but I love having fun more…. so I think I’ve got my priorities straight!
Happy Mother’s Day to you our young friend !! 🙂

I just returned from visiting Mom. She was very happy to see us, but didn’t want to miss the golf on TV, either!
Thank you, Nancy, and a Happy Mother’s Day to your lovely mom! 🙂
Thanks… she is lovely, isn’t she?
Yes. L.o.v.e.l.y. is a soft and loving word. ❤
Your mother looks like she has lived a wonderful life.
She’s the happiest, smartest person I know. My husband was just wondering the other day about the reason for her longevity, and I said that I believed that it is because, right to her core, she is a happy loving person.
Bless all Mums everywhere. In the UK, Mothers Day is in March, but it’s my Mum’s birthday this month, and she’ll be 93. ❤
Bless your Mum too!
That’s a wonderful goal. We should all have that goal.
I never want to stop laughing. She hasn’t. She was laughing in this photo because I was taking her picture and my sister asked her a question. And Mom said, “I can’t talk right now. I’m posing.” And then she laughed at herself.
What a wonderful suitcase of memories your mother is going to leave to you and your sister so that in the many years to come, you will be able to recall just how lovely she was and how much you all loved each other. Happy Mother’s Day.
How wonderful for you to still have your mother! I don’t want to lose my laughter either!
I can almost hear her laughing in that photo. It is great. My grandmother had a wonderful laugh. My mother, not. My daughter inherited it, though. I love to hear her laugh. It’s amazing to me that something like a laugh could be inherited. Do you have your mom’s laugh?
Enjoy having your mother- I’m still missing mine, since nearly 40 years ago
Well it’s quite obvious the apple didn’t fall far from the tree when it comes to you and your mom. Your mom sounds lovely and so is her daughter. I hope y’all had a very blessed day yesterday. 🙂
My mother is a delight in every way. Thanks .
She’s adorable! 🙂
She certainly is! And smart too!
