I went to Church Mother’s Day.  Amanda and Wyatt went too! The men of the Church cooked out on the huge grills while we sat in Church listening to the sermon and the singing. My great nieces sang !

The men got to hear too as they had loud speakers hooked up outside. They did a good job grilling too!  We had BBQ pork chops, ribs, and chicken…along with beans,corn,and various vegetables and an assortment of desserts.


          Here’s Wyatt eating his lunch at Church!

Amanda had pink roses sent to me Saturday while I was at work! I haven’t had roses in I don’t  know when…and could probably count on one hand the ones I’ve had during my entire life time. (Guess I am just the type woman no one sends flowers to, huh?) The roses were so pretty and they were pink…my favorites!


Dan got me a card and also ‘took’ me out to eat..with the help of Amanda and Kelvin doing the driving! He really surprised me!


My ‘other young-un’ Kandy found me up town getting Amanda’s card from Wyatt Sunday ( the one that got stolen) and we got to talk for a bit. When we got ready to go our separate ways, she reached in the car and handed me this card…and when I read it I nearly cried…


Just goes to show that sharing one’s blood and DNA doesn’t make a mama…or a child. Thank you sweetheart.

Sunday after Church, I got a card for Wyatt to give his mommy. So, while Amanda and Kelvin were gone to his mom’s , I slipped over to their house and put the card securely in the screen door. Do you know someone stole that card before they got back home??? MAKES ME SO DARN MAD!

So, today I went back to the store where I bought it yesterday and got the very same card and personally gave it to her for Wyatt…I guess whoever took the first one must have thought there was money in it…When they found none, they could have least put it back. Some people are so sorry and mean.

I went to see my mama on Mother’s day too. I went that afternoon after I got back from the BBQ at the church…She was sitting in her wheel chair and had her a little snack lined up on the seat of a hard back chair in her room. She was so happy to get the new ‘dress’  and snacks that I got her.


And that was my Mother’s Day….I hope each and everyone of yall had a good Mother’s Day too.

Exactly how a Mother's Day should be...the Lord, family and friends! Oh, and don't forget, delish food!

Sounds like such a lovely Mother's Day and I am so happy that you were surrounded by love and joy on this special day. Your mama looks so sweet and I know how much she must have appreciated the gifts you brought her. So sorry to hear about the stolen mother's day card! Wow! I am amazed at what people will do.

It sounds like a wonderful day. That barbecue was a great idea. No cooking for the moms. It'sad to think that someone would take a card like that right off the door. Hope your week is off to a great start.

Someone stole the card? I am not so simple as to not realize some people will get money any way they can, but that is low.

I'm glad Dan surprised you in such a nice way. The picture of Wyatt is adorable.
Who could not love pink roses? I love the picture of your Mom.~Mary

SO glad to hear you had a wonderful Mothers totally deserve one...i once sent my BFF a bday card and someone stole it and it has a 5by7 photo of my kids in it that i could not replace that cost a pretty penny...her upstairs neighbors were on crack....i actually confronted them and said "just give the photo back". They threatened i know how awful it is to have assholes come along and steal things. Wyatt is so cute! Love seeing your mama too.
