Remembering with Gratitude*

Remembering to Be Thankful for those who gave their life for our Freedom and Peace.
My Grand parents who lived in the midwest used to host Fabulous Dinners and invite special Veterans to join them at their home on the Lake.
My Uncle a young Pilot was killed in training when his plane went down and my other Uncle was injured with a bullet. Lucky he was returned home.

Memorial Day has a special meaning for my family.
A Memory that I cherish was......
My Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles always rode in the Parade in our little town and proudly represented their Patriotic Honor and Appreciation.
While celebrating Let's please take a minute to remember those who served our country and the men and women who are in service now and their Families hoping that they return home safety.
So if your in a parade with your family or at the beach,Lake or just in the back yard this weekend, Enjoy and Cheers to Memorial Day !!!!

Dreaming of Summer*

Waiting for Summer.... A chilly and windy day here in So. Cal.

This is a little fortune I have kept for years..
Have a great week.

*Fragrant Blossoms*

Driving home, I saw a Lady selling bouquets of Lilacs.
I quickly pulled over to get a beautiful bouquet of my own!!

I was trimming them to put into this vase, while remembering my child hood summers. Lilacs bloomed everywhere, I used to gather a huge arm full and bring them to my mom!!
In the midwest summer flowers and fresh fruit and vegetables are a big thing!!!
I put these next the bed so I can smell them while I'm sleeping.....

Mother's Day is everyday!

Hoping your Mother's Day was filled with unforgettable moments, a little kiss, hug or just a warm hand to hold. Being a mother is full of amazing emotions,endless questions we ask of ourselves in our hearts if we said or did the right thing. Through the years I know for sure I felt all of these. Most of all I realized sometimes just being there for everyone is so powerful. I know it's truly in those quiet moments that we are appreciated the most. Because we truly love and care and that is immeasurable.

A prayer and a kiss for my Mother who I miss Dearly everyday.... Also my Grandmothers and Aunts who really paved the way for me and set such wonderful examples of Motherhood. I adored them all and Miss them all.....
Happy Mother's Day to all of you Mother's, Grandmothers, Aunties, Step moms & Mother-in-Laws.
