Mother's Day is May 8th!

I can not believe Sunday will be May 8th and Mother's Day....where has the time gone.

I am not prepared for it at all....can you believe I am working a 12 hour day shift and do not know if I can get out of it. My son is not going to be pleased with me!

Do you have plans made? What do you do for your Mother on Mother's Day?

My mother is a very simple lady and does not like a fuss so we usually try not to all show up at once but plan our visits so there are not many of us there at a time. She does like to get little gifts. I am planning on getting her a watch and I bought this cute little note pad from Arriving Angels on Etsy:




My son and his wife usually have a BBQue at their house and the two mothers are there....they will get us small gifts from the boys. Her mother and I will get her something as well...this year one of the little things I bought her is this cute key chain from GlitterbirdGlamour:




Whatever the day brings I always enjoy just spending some time with my son, grandsons this year and my Mom. Mom is 75 years old and I worry each year it will be our last. So I will cherish every minute I get with her.

Hope all you wonderful ladies out there have a wonderful Mother's Day!!!

My little Kylie is soooo excited. She gets more excited than I do and makes me all kinds of cards and throws me a "party" and makes daddy take her shopping. Goodness I'm getting teary-eyed thinking about it. She is such a sweety and expresses her love so freely. It's amazing. You ladies have a wonderful Mother's Day too!:)

Definitely happy Mother's Day! My sister and I usually buy a flat of flowers for our mother and plant them under her supervision for Mother's Day. I love having those traditions. Have a fabulous time at your BBQ. I hope your work schedule doesn't conflict!

Happy Mother's Day. We only have furry children - cats, but we'll be going to a niece's birthday party.

Do cherish the time. That's important to remember.
