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.

Sunday Reflections…

My day started early… straightened up the house a little, straightened up outside and on the porch a little… Cleaned the grill real good, cut up veggies and sliced salmon filets, etc etc. Getting ready for Mother’s Day lunch is a bit of work, BUT, worth every minute of the effort! ❤️

Mom came over and ate and we all had a good visit.

I meant to get good pictures of the plated food before it was all eaten… Oh well, I guess it was good 😊 By the time I remembered, there wasn’t much left…

What’s for dinner? “Grilled Salmon with Mango salsa, mixed roasted vegetables, broccoli slaw, Mac & Cheese with bacon, and mixed fruit salad”. Y’all come!

I got a picture with all the moms in the room together. Pretty awesome if you ask me. My mom and sister and My wife and her mom.

It’s been a while since everyone could be together at the same time. So it was a great day on many levels!

“Youth fades; love droops; the leaves of friendship fall; A mother’s secret hope outlives them all.”

~ Oliver Wendell Holmes


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

Mother’s Day Eve…

I don’t know about you, but I’m about worn out! We are hosting Mother’s Day tomorrow & Im finally sitting down for the evening at 10:30… Jo said it reminds her of Christmas Eve, with all the cleaning and cooking 😊 I’m looking forward to cooking for my mom tomorrow. How about you?

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

Looking at the Positive Side of Things…

Summer heat is still here, but it’s winding down… Next weekend is the big Labor Day Celebration that we all look forward too. Cookouts, boating, swimming, volleyball, etc. And even though it’s the ‘unofficial end of Summer’, it’s a long weekend for many & the beginning of a new season, So we got that goin for us 😊

What else is lining up for Holidays and long weekends in our future 👇🏻

2020 has been a struggle, but there’s always something positive if you look.

So, I’m gonna take the small things, the good things of 2020 as I find them and be thankful. I have also found that if you sit down with a pen 🖊 and paper 📝 and write down your blessings as you count them, it will blow you away!  ❤️

 

PS: Here’s one – It’s Saturday! 💥

Have a Great Day!

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! ❤️

With all the bad news out there bringing you down, let’s focus on something that’s good! We are in a Leap Year… You know, every 4 years we make up for the slight time difference by adding an extra day to our calendar year – Hello February 29th! 😊 Well this year that extra day just happens to be a Saturday!💥

PS: We only get the extra Saturday once every 28 years! Plus a few other things have lined up nicely for 2020 👇🏻
