Happy Mother's Day

In case I don't get back to my blog before Monday...Happy Mother's Day! 


My sweet Mother has been on my mind this morning. I've posted this picture probably too many times but it is my favorite. Mama holding me and Shelby standing by her side.


My Mother died on Thanksgiving Day in 2007. Her Mother, my Grandma, died on Mother's Day May 14, 1950. Mama's name was "Jewel" and she definitely was a jewel.


My sweet daughter Andee called this morning  to let me know...if it was okay with me...she was coming to see me for Mother's Day. Oh my gosh! If it's okay with me! I am absolutely tickled to death!


I love this old picture of Andee and little Madison.

Andee lives three hours away in Virginia. Madison, my sweet granddaughter, is away at a swim meet. Todd will stay home and look after the dogs and be there when Madison gets home. You know the sweetest thing? Todd asked Andee what she wanted for Mother's Day. Andee said, "I want to go see Mama". Thank you Todd and Madison for sending Andee this way for Mother's Day.

Andee and Bruno
Okay, I am still in my pajamas. Got to run over the floors with the vacuum, put sheets on the bed in the sewing room, wipe a little of the dust off things, and get myself looking halfway decent...we'll be going in some thrift stores for sure! Andee is on way as we speak!

Love,
Henny

  10. What a sweety Andee is! A wonderful Mother's Day present for you! Have fun together:)
    I've got to tell you this....I occasionally visit some of the blogs you have listed to the right. I discovered Granny Marigold lives not far from me. Kind of funny that I had to go to N. Carolina to find a local blog! I've left a few comments on hers, and she came to the farmers market today and introduced herself to me. How cool is that?!

    1. That is very cool!! That is so neat! And to think she lives near you. I was telling her through her blog that you are a blogging friend that I would love to meet in person. Hope you are having a happy Mother's Day!

  11. Happy Mothers Day to you too. I hope the day is a wonderful one. As Karen says, through your blog we have found out we live mere miles from each other... me in town and her out in the country. She is the first blogger I've actually met. ( She's very sweet).
