Hey friends, I really appreciate you for stopping by today.
I hope you are getting to spend some special time with your family on this special day.
I’m going to keep today’s post short and sweet so you can get back to family time.
Do You Ever Get Over Missing Your Mom?
First, this is my third Mother’s Day without my mom. I don’t think you ever get over the loss of your Mother!
However, I can’t be too sad because I was luckier and most. My mom was 38 year old when I was born and lived until she was almost 99 years old. I can’t complain about enjoying 61 years with my mom.
Oops, did I just tell you my age? Doesn’t matter! With age comes wisdom or so they say. If you still have your mother, don’t let time slip away without treasuring your moments together.
This photo of my mom was taken on the original pier in front of our farmhouse before I was born.
I’ve shared many times that I wish I was more like my mom! She was the most giving person I’ve ever known.
She planted a large garden until she was 97 years old just so she could give most of the produce away to friends and family. She never expected anything in return. It gave her joy to give!
My favorite quote!
She always said “Use it or lose it”.
Those are words she lived by. She was working hard until she couldn’t and therefore had a long and blessed life.

Why Didn’t I Think of That?
Each week there are so many wonderful blog posts and I’m sharing some of my favorites with you today.
There are so many creative ideas and I’m always asking myself, “why didn’t I think of that”? LOL
You are not going to believe what these are made from. Check out my friend Chloe – How to make DIY Coffee Filter Roses – This is definitely one of my “why didn’t I think of that” ideas. So cute.
