Mother's all over the world are celebrating this special day with their families and loved ones. In light of that is seems appropriate to wish one and all a very wonderous and happy day. For those who have loved ones serving their country in foreign lands, my thoughts and prayers are with you and with them.

We haven't done much here in our house to celebrate this day. My dear daughter spoilt me with a gorgeous bouquet of long stemmed red roses. Red roses are very special to me as my dear husband always bought me these. Since he's gone she's taken up the tradition and I'm very touched and grateful for her thoughtfulness.

Despite losing my husband, now almost 15 months ago, I am very grateful for many things. My daughter has been a blessing and an inspiration to me, I am so grateful for her presence in my home and in my life. I am equally grateful for the love and support I've received from my friends since Garry died. I have no words to adequately describe how thankful I am to them for all the things they have done for me and for being a part of my life. I'm grateful that I am healthy, that my daughter is healthy and that we have a roof over our heads. My husband provided for us financially and made sure that we would be well taken care of if something happened to him and, for that, I'm eternally grateful.

Despite our loss and the pain that's still so fresh, I have much to be thankful for . Life is good and I couldn't ask for more.

I'm happy to hear that your doing well, and Kerry is taking such good care of you.
Time flies by now so quickly.. it's a blur most of the time.
I hope you know we are always here for you.. even with the distance and infrequent communication. Your brother could never be accused of being a big communicator. I do try to compensate for him in that way when I can.
Will be seeing wither of you two this summer in the East? I do hope so.
Take care,

Hi Wendy

So nice of you to drop by and visit my blog. Kerry and I are doing well. I can't believe that Garry has been gone for 15 months, it still seems like yesterday. But life does go on and that's as it should be. He wouldn't have wanted it any other way!

We are planning a trip back East in September. I'll only be in town for about 6 days but Kerry will be staying longer.

Looking forward to seeing you both. I hope you'll come back and visit my blog again soon.

Take care
