I AM TRULY BLESSED, AND LIFE IS GOOD...

Life is precious......and life is good.......I am so aware of this! I hope everyone that is a MOM had a blessed and wonderful day...I did.
I awoke early this morning....I heard our oldest DD getting up and ready for work...and had planned on getting up to see her off, but fell back asleep for a few minutes...it was just about 7am when I woke. I came out to the kitchen, put some coffee on and walked into the dining room/den....this is what I saw....LOL


That large white envelope is a card from oldest DD, the purse is what she bought me...it is GORGEOUS!! The other two cards are from my son and youngest DD....they got me Rhoda on DVD and some chocolate......how sweet was that!!!!! I know Mother's Day is not about "THINGS"... but they were just so sweet to do this!!

Today, as I mentioned, oldest had to work, but my son and youngest DD and DH and I packed a picnic and went for a drive...we got lost, once...LOL, but ended up being where we wanted to be. Here are a couple of photos of our drive...this was taken just before it poured....so it's kind of dark!




I've got some ideas I want to share with you over the next couple of days...so I hope you stop by!

Take care everyone!

Marion,
Sounds like you had a great day :) What wonderful kids you have to surprise you with such nice stuff! I'm sure the picnic was great, even with the dark sky before the storm , the ocean looks awesome :)

Have a great day!

That is a beautiful purse. So pleased that you have a wonderful day. As for me, we spent last weekend with DD and her hubby in Nova Scotia and celebrated then. Then this weekend, DH and I took my brother and his wife out for supper for their 40th wedding anniversary. So I got out of cooking again which was great.
