Have a great Mother’s Day!! Cheers~ 😀

What a lovely and, as you wrote, bittersweet post, Antoinette. Love this advice from your grandma: “In order to live a long life you have to treat everybody right and pray.” Thanks for visiting me earlier in the week. I always enjoy returning the visit and reading through your blog. Blessings!

Than you my dear – I hope your day was fun and blessed!

Enjoy your Mother’s Day my friend.
