Sunday Reflections…

Today is a special day! In more ways than 1… Today, every American should remember the D-Day Invasion of WWII, June 6, 1944. That was the day that Allied forces invaded northern France by means of beach landings in Normandy. My grandfathers unit was there (Omaha Beach) and I have always felt a sense of pride and gratitude knowing what all those great men did for us 🇺🇸

Grandad was a Tank Destroyer in WWII. Today was a big day for the men that landed on the beaches at Normandy. Big day for all of us as well! God Bless America 🇺🇸

The other thing that makes this a very special day is that today is my moms birthday! 🎂 A very special day indeed! 💥

Happy Birthday mom! 🎈

You can’t send mom a Facebook Birthday message, because she’s not on Facebook 😊 BUT, she does read my BLOG … So feel free to drop a HB comment here if you’d like to. I’ll make sure she gets it 😊

Thanks mom for all you do! You are a linchpin! You hold it all together and make it all work. I don’t know what I would do without you 🙏🏻❤️

Happy Birthday! 🎈 I Love You! ❤️

“Thoughtful lady, that works so hard,
Always been there, my dear lifeguard.
Places others before herself,
Proud of pictures on her shelf.

When in pain, maintains here smile,
Multi-tasking, she’s versatile.
With all of this; time she finds,
Her love for us, constantly reminds.

On her birthday, just want to say,
I don’t know how, I will repay?
Eternally grateful, I hope she will see,
The greatest mother, she will always be.

Mothers Day Eve | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

The year is moving right along & already, we find ourselves on the eve of Mothers Day… What are your plans this year? I mean, how are you going to let the most important lady in your life know that she’s special? 

I saw this & yes, it’s true, but I kept on looking for that “extra special gift” 😊

We usually go out to eat at a nice restaurant of her choosing… But you know that’s out this year… 

Here’s a Short list – 

  • Hallmark card
  • Gift Card
  • Flowers
  • Plants
  • Candy
  • Photos of myself 😆
  • Gift Certificate 
  • Booze 🍸 
  • Koi 

The more I think about it, the gift of time together is maybe the best thing to share with your mom. That and a bottle of wine 🍷 😆

Personally, I’m grilling steaks 🥩 for my mother on Mother’s Day! A nice visit and a good meal sounds like the ticket 🎫 to me. 

A good Ribeye 🥩 is my mother’s favorite!



 Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms out there! What would we do without you! ❤️
