Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day!

I had a wonderful treat yesterday. Our entire family got together and had a picnic at Mill Creek State Park in Youngstown, Ohio. The weather was iffy when things started out, but as grace would have it, it was gorgeous.

My daughters are wonderful! I know that sounds pompous, but it's true. They planned this event and carried it through. I felt so honored.

These darling children are my grandchildren. They are (from left to right) ...

Evelyn (1 month shy of 6), Hadley (13 months), Nathan (19 months) and Anna (19 months).

This handsome man is my husband Rick and

our youngest grandchild so far.

Dear Lord,

Thank You for my family. You have taught me so much. You have listened to my prayers of joy, my prayers of sadness, my prayers of worry. You have answered every the manner You know is right for me. I am truly grateful for the blessings you have given me.

In the name of Your son, Jesus Christ, Amen.


  1. You are so blessed with such a loving family. We, too, had a lovely day with the whole family and the guys did all the cooking and cleanup. It was perfect.

  2. What a lovely day, Mimi. Pompous? I think NOT! You sound proud and happy and that's the way every Mom should be!

  3. What a wonderful day! You are blessed to have a sweet family that cares. So glad that you shared about your special day.
