To my mother... thank you.

My mother taught me many things. The most important? Here it is.

Do yourself a favor, and watch and listen. It's a nice reminder of what's really important.

If I can give anything to my own children, anything, it's the knowledge that yes, it IS a wonderful world.

Happy Mother's Day, my loves. Happy Mother's Day indeed.

(And to my darling sister? Happy, happy birthday. Just remember- you'll ALWAYS be older than me.)

This song always creates those watery things to build up in my eyeball sockets.

Lovely tribute to moms.

"and I think to myself what a wonderful world". . .my favorite words for a very long time now! I did a slideshow on my blog today as well, of our gardens at the store named after my mom. Mother's Day is always kind of a bittersweet day, and then your kids, big or small, do something to torture you and you snap back to reality very quickly!
Take care, Sue

I can't listen to either of the versions of Wonderful World right now, I am dressed to go out and it will ruin my eye make up :)

It is so great to have an Older sister / brother.
I am 10 years older than my brother ! woe is me. And now he is too old to order around.. my parents were very neglectful when they did this .. making me the "older" one ..

As well as we all know it Is a Wonderful World.. Reminders are Always Welcome ..
And we have to remind others as well..
un beso to all the Mom's out there..

Loved that last bit about sister especially. I have an older one and know EXACTLY what you mean. How the tables have turned?
