First of all, I have to thank you for all the lovely and touching comments I received in response to my Mother's Day post on Sunday.
I posted the above quote on my facebook page, and it gained quite a good response, so I thought that I would share it with you here today.
Most of my Followers who have been with me since the beginning, will know that I love quotations and it occurs to me that I haven't done a 'quotation post' for quite a while now, so I've been looking at a few, which I hope you will enjoy.
All quotes today courtesy of Pinterest.
Every so often, we have little catalogues come through the post with special gift ideas. I have always admired one of the items, and, look at this, Emma gave me one as a Mother's Day present, and, more importantly, she made it all herself. Presents that are hand-made always seem to carry special meaning, don't you think? It was difficult to get a good photo really, because it is quite large. The wording Says "Home is ...... Where the heart is". Then all the little maps are specially created for places that have a special meaning for me.
The first heart is where Emma and family live and the second heart is where I used to live with my mum and dad as a child. The third heart is where Alison and family live, the fourth heart is Florence (which I adore), the fifth heart (right in the middle) is where hubby and I live now, and the sixth heart is of Venice (my very favourite place!). The bottom line of hearts starts with Lake Garda (you will see that Italy has a special place in my heart from all this!), followed by Bigbury & Burgh Island (which is the lovely beach that I keep posting photos of) and the final heart is Fallingbostel, where we lived for three years when hubby was in the Armed Forces. So! You will see that each heart has a special meaning for me. Lovely, don't you think?
Last, but by no means least today, is this beautiful bouquet which arrived from Alison, daughter number 2. Aren't they beautiful? They came from the same lady that did all the flowers for Alison's flowers in June last year, and many of you might remember how stunning they were.
So, all in all, I am very blessed and feel very lucky to have two such beautiful and caring daughters. Thank you girls!
Tomorrow I will share a little bit of spring which has arrived in my garden! Bye for now.
