Our Mother’s Day

As expected, yesterday was spent celebrating with family.

We began the day with Marshall joining us for breakfast.  He came bearing garden flags, which I love.

Later in the day, Motor Man and I joined his family to honor his mom. I thought she looked quite festive in her “spring” scarf.

Sundae gave me a balloon.

As did Gypsy.

(Both kitties were scared of the balloons, and “bowed up” like Halloween cats, so we had to move the balloons to rooms that we could close off from kitties.)

And Motor Man, in addition to helping the kitties with their balloons (which he vehemently denies), also gave me a sweet card.

There were smiles, laughter, and  good food. And we had sunshine.

There were also bittersweet memories of mothers who are gone, those who are childless (not by choice), and children who lost their moms much too early.  And we had rain.

  3. I’m happy you had a nice Mother’s Day, Dianna. You and Marshall have the exact same smile. 🙂

  4. Sounds like a beautiful Mothers Day to me and I can see what a lovely Mothers Day it was, and thanks to some fotever nameless Co conspirators – it was a Mothers Day of lovely surprises from the kitty children, even if it gave them a bad case of Halloween back. I hear it is cured by two strokes and heavy dose of soothing words. Let’s not forget your own son – how thoughtful. I love a yard with colorful garden flags. Glad you had a wonderful day.
