Happy Mother’s Day!


Wishing all mothers a wonderful and restful Mother’s Day on Sunday!

May you not have to lift a finger.

May you enjoy your morning coffee and linger.

May your children do all that they are told.

May they help each other and not be too bold.

May you have some time to do what you want to do.

May you know how much your family loves you.

May you have a day to do things in your own way.

May you have a lovely, memorable and happy Mother’s Day!

Thought for the day:  Do something special for your mother on Mother’s Day.  My mother passed away ten years ago and I miss her every day.

  2. Goodmorning Janice, we have Mothering Sunday in March but I’ll FaceTime Mum shortly and I’ll remember to tell her she’s wonderful 🙂 she’s coming up to see me in competition on Thursday and in my final night of the opera on Thursday night.

    Hello Janice, Thank you! Happy Mother’s Day! You are asking for a miracle not to lift a finger. My family expects me to serve them! This is my first year without my mom. It is not easy. Take care. Sincerely, Mary Ann

      I hope you didn’t have to work too hard today. I guess you spoil them. Today they should spoil you. It is sad to lose your mother. I know, I miss mine too. Take care my friend.

  4. Mothers can be best friends, mentors, well-wishers and so much more. They certainly deserve their special day. 🙂
