another mothers day post

Happy Mother's Day everyone !

My kids bought me an odd set of cup and plates from Vinnies
and a ball of wool in my mothers favourite colour , just perfect !

My brothers and sisters and all our kids have a cup of tea at
11.00 am on mothers day in honour of our mum and nan .
Although we are not in the same room we all are together in spirit.
We are spread out all over Australia and New Zealand
and there are lots of us .

This is our second time doing this and although it has
a tinge of sadness it brings us all together
and I know that my mum would have loved that.

So yes I am always a little sad on days like this but
so very grateful for my family .

Enjoy your day !

Love you mum always xxxx

What a lovely idea. I am always feeling sad on Mother's day too as I lost my mother very suddently in 2009. But every year I buy I boquet of flowers in honour of her and my husband's late mother and we place a photo of our mothers' beside the flowers. We do the same on father's day in honour of our late father's. I feel very blessed though that I have love memories to treasure.

What a lovely idea to remember your Mum and Nan. Next month will be the first Fathers Day without my Dad, would you mind if I used or tweeked this idea. He did like the odd beer or a cup of tea too.

Hope you had a good day.
Our Mothers Day is in March in the UK.

Mothers Day is a hard one for me too - would love to be able to hold my mum again. On the other hand my own kids are amazing and make me feel very special. A bitter sweet day.
Clare, thanks for stopping by my little blog and making your presence known x
