We spent the day doing what we do best,
spending time with family. Several times throughout the
day I thought about the one who was missing.
Actually, the two, Kristen and my dad.
Both Kristen and my dad loved these special occasions when
we would all gather for fun, food and games.
As we continue to gather, we continue to share stories and memories
all while making new ones.
I feel so very blessed to have 6 of the
most amazing children any mother could ever hope for.
I have also been blessed to have the
world's best mom.
I am so very proud of my children who have become mothers and fathers
themselves and are raising their children in love and righteousness.
Today was a good day.
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms in my life.
Wouldn't you know, I forgot I had my camera until almost
everyone had left. I did manage to get a couple of pictures from the day.
If you want to make really good chocolate covered strawberries,
I highly recommend using the large Symphony milk chocolate bars, they make
a fabulous treat that any mother would love.
A friend sent me this picture just in time for Mother's Day
from the beach in Venice, Florida.
A sweet reminder that Kristen lives on in the hearts of many,
that she is loved and remembered.
